ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Police are not ruling out murder after a body was found inside the trunk of a car that caught on fire Friday night.
Firefighters responded to the car fire just before 10 o'clock Friday night behind the Walmart at Coors and I-40 and found a body in the trunk.
That is when they called in APD.
Cops say they believe the car was reported stolen a few days earlier.
Police say the body is so badly burned the office of the medical investigator will have to use dental records to identify the victim.
"We don't know the sex, we don't know the age…we don't have identification at this point," Officer Robert Gibbs said. "The vehicle appears to be possibly a ford mustang."
For now, police are investigating this as a homicide.
At this point, police do not have any suspects in the case.
