Deputies: Charred Body Found in Parked Car a Mystery

The car was found on fire on Country Club Lane at the end of Harmony Grove Road

Firefighters found a charred body inside of a car on fire overnight near Escondido.

The light blue Nissan was parked on Country Club Lane at the dead end of Harmony Grove Road.

San Diego County Sheriff’s Deputies and arson investigators are looking into what may have started the fire.

Just before 9 p.m. on Wednesday, firefighters and sheriff's deputies were called to the remote area for a car fire.

The fire was in full force when engines arrived. It wasn't until they put the fire out that crews found a severely charred body in the driver's seat.

Investigators haven’t identified the gender of the person inside the car or whether they think the fire is the result of any foul play.
