Another body found in a burnt car

Foreword: In NZ, we grow up believing cars will spontaneously burst into flames at the end of their usability cycle, often with the driver still inside, and sometimes the driver is dead before the car catches fire. Baaa…
Body found by burnt car in Lower Hutt park
From “murder-mystery” to “suspicious” to “unexplained death” to “not seeking anyone else in connection with the incident” in one sentence.
“Police investigating how a body next to a burning car came to be in a Wellington park this morning say they are not seeking anyone else in connection with the incident.”
They said earlier they believed they had identified the body, which was found just outside the driver’s door of the burnt-out car.
The police statement was issued within minutes of arriving at the scene and despite the fact that “even usually identifiable features of the car – such as number plates – were unrecognisable”.
