“Human remains” were discovered this Thursday at midday in a burned out utility vehicle in Bellegarde (Gard), declared the public prosecutor of Nîmes, announcing the opening of an investigation for “murder”.
“The state of degradation of the body proves a long and intense combustion” and did not allow identification at this stage, specified Eric Maurel.
An autopsy scheduled for Friday
An autopsy will be performed on Friday.
The macabre discovery was made by a passer-by, alerted by the smoke emanating from the vehicle in an isolated area of this town located 15 km south-east of Nîmes.
Numerous criminal identification technicians went there in the afternoon.
The Nîmes research section and the Gard gendarmerie group are responsible for the investigation.
