NASHVILLE (AP) — Metro Nashville Police are investigating the discovery of a human body in a flaming sport utility vehicle.
A police officer saw smoke rising from an alley on the city's north side early Sunday and discovered the SUV on fire. Firefighters who extinguished the flames found a burned body inside the vehicle.
The person was tentatively identified as a Hendersonville man, but a comparison of dental records will be made to make certain.
Police say they don't yet know if the death is the result of foul play, accident or suicide.
