ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities in western New York are investigating the discovery of a second burned human body in the region.

Rochester police say the body was found by a passerby in a wooded part of a city park just before 6:30 a.m. Wednesday.

They say they haven’t identified the person or determined their gender.

State police said Tuesday a body was found burning on the side of an isolated dirt road just before 11 p.m. Monday in the Livingston County town of Caledonia, 20 miles southwest of Rochester.

Troopers said the body was burned beyond recognition. An autopsy was planned to determine the person’s gender and cause of death.

Rochester authorities say they’re in the early stages of the investigation. They haven’t commented on any possible connection between the two deaths.
