A news release from the police department said the medical examiner’s office determined the death was not from natural causes. No other information is being released.
The fire was reported April 28 along a wooded, remote stretch of Kentucky 393. The body was found inside the vehicle when the flames were extinguished.
Police said at the time investigators suspected foul play.
