OKLAHOMA CITY — Police responded to a call of a traffic accident to find car on fire with a body inside.

Fire responders arrived at the scene around 6:30 a.m. Saturday to put out the blaze when a police officer noticed what appeared to be a body inside. Police are treating the incident as a “suspicious fire.”

Authorities from the Oklahoma City Police Department say the victim suffered injuries that are consistent with a homicide.

A witness recognized the car, a purple Volkswagen. “I had seen the car parked there from time to time,” he said. “There wasn’t anything around the car for it to have hit.”
