MOAB — Law enforcers in Grand County are investigating the discovery of a body inside a burned vehicle.

Deputies from the Grand County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday found the burned vehicle on a remote Bureau of Land Management road near Ten Mile Point, about 30 miles northwest of Moab, according to a prepared statement from the department.

“Investigators discovered the burned remains of a pickup with human remains found inside the vehicle,” the sheriff's office stated.

The remains were taken to the State Medical Examiner’s Office to try and determine the person’s identity and cause of death.
