Police seek witnesses after body found in burning vehicle


St. Paul police are investigating after a body was found in a burning vehicle Saturday night.

Police and fire officials responded to the 1000 block of Westminster Street in St. Paul around 6 p.m. Saturday to find a person's body inside a burning car, a news release says.

"At this point, we don't know who the person is that was inside the car," St. Paul police spokesman Steve Linders told the Pioneer Press. "We don't know how that person died. We don't know their race, their age or even their sex."

Investigators are seeking more information on the person, including witnesses or people who may be able to identify the person who died, the Star Tribune says.

The Ramsey County Medical Examiner will release the person's identity and cause of death.
