Coroner: man's body found in burned car at Lake Loramie

MINSTER, Ohio (AP) — A coroner says the body found in a burned car at a state park in western Ohio on Sunday was an adult male.

Shelby County coroner Dr. A. David McDonald said Thursday that dental records are being analyzed to help determine the identity of the man found Sunday at Lake Loramie State Park.

McDonald said an Ohio license tag was on the car and the person to whom the car is registered is missing.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1Qy4KbT ) reports the Montgomery County coroner's office performed the autopsy but didn't immediately release a preliminary cause of death.

An Ohio Department of Natural Resources spokesman says a park officer found the car at the end of a gravel road during a routine patrol. The spokesman says the investigation is continuing.
