Burnt body found in boot of car

The police are investigating a murder case after a burnt body was found in the boot of a car in Klipgat near Brits last Thursday.

According to police spokesperson, Colonel Adele Myburgh, the police were called to a soccer field early on Thursday morning where they found a burnt vehicle. The burnt body of a man was found in the boot. “Currently, the police cannot confirm what transpired and investigation into the matter continues. It is suspected that the body could be that of the owner of the vehicle, who has been missing since the incident was reported. However, the identity of the man cannot be confirmed as the body is burnt beyond recognition and DNA testing will have to be done to assist in positively identifying the man,” she said.
