YORK, Pa. (AP) - An autopsy was expected on the body of a Philadelphia man found burning in a rural area of a township near York.

West Manchester Township police found the burning body when they responded to a report of a fire about 4:45 a.m. Thursday.

The York County coroner has since identified the body as that of 23-year-old Juan Acevedo DeJesus. The case is being treated as a possible homicide, pending results of Friday’s autopsy.

No suspects have been identified.

West Manchester is about 100 miles west of Philadelphia.
