Kansas crews putting out vehicle fire discover body in trunk

(AP) — Firefighters northwest of Kansas City, Kansas, who were called to put out a vehicle fire earlier this week made a grisly discovery: a body in the car’s trunk. 

Television station KSHB reports the discovery was made before dawn Monday when Kickapoo Township firefighters responded to a car fire in rural northern Leavenworth County. 

The Leavenworth County Sheriff’s Office says in a news release that once the fire was extinguished, firefighters found the body in the car’s trunk. 

Investigators have not released the victim’s name.
