SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) - Police are continuing to investigate after a body was found in a burned car in a park in western Ohio.

Emergency crews called to a park in Springfield around 4 a.m. Thursday found an SUV on fire. The body was found in the back seat after firefighters extinguished the blaze.

It wasn’t known whether investigators believe the victim died before or during the fire.

Investigators said they couldn’t immediately determine the age, gender or identity of the victim. They said the license plates found on the SUV had expired last year and are registered to a different car.

The Clark County coroner and the Ohio Bureau of Investigation also are involved in the investigation.
