A body was found inside the trunk of a burning luxury sedan this morning that was parked in a Philadelphia park.
Firefighters rushed the Pennypack Trail off Woodward Street in the Bustleton section of Northeast Philadelphia around 7:15 a.m. to put out the burning white Lexus, which was parked about 1,000 feet down the path.
The flames were quickly extinguished.
Inside the trunk they found a body. It’s unclear if the body was a man’s or woman’s.
Philadelphia Police taped off the area leading to the trail and continued to investigate through the morning.
