Body Found in Charred Car in Pike County

Posted: Updated:

A body found in a charred vehicle in Pike County is now at the state crime lab. Authorities found the body on Tuesday morning on Fernwood Road near Magnolia.

According to Pike County Coroner, Percy Pittman the body appears to be a female or a small male.

The body was burned so badly they only have a few bones to identify the victim.

We're told that the skull was found in the back passenger seat of a burgundy Mercury Mountaineer.

The only part of the license plate left on the vehicle are the letters PK.

Pittman says authorities do have some possible leads as to who did this. Police are investigating the case as a homicide.
