Description of Incident:
Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives are investigating human remains found inside a burning vehicle early Monday morning in a remote area of Weston.
A Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue truck was driving along U.S. 27 around 9:30 a.m. Feb. 10 when they noticed a plume of smoke just east of the roadway and decided to find the origin of the fire.
The crew found a four-door sedan fully engulfed in flames about a half-mile east of U.S. 27 on Southwest 26 Street. Firefighters quickly extinguished the flames and conducted a thorough search of the vehicle. That’s when they discovered the charred remains of a person inside the trunk.
The remains were transported to the Broward County Medical Examiner’s Office where they will try to identify the body.
BSO homicide and crime scene detectives are investigating.
