WESTCHESTER (CBSLA.com) — A man’s body was found in the driver’s seat of a burned car near Loyola Marymount University, LAPD officials say.
A white Ford Mustang was on fire when it was spotted by an ambulance in the area just before 2 a.m. Thursday and the crew called it in. The car was found in a wildland area near the entrance of the university, off Lincoln Boulevard just north of Jefferson Boulevard.
Officers say this was not a crash, and it’s not yet clear how the man died.
“We can’t tell yet, and again, we’re still awaiting the coroner, so we haven’t examined the scene completely,” LAPD Lt. John Radtke said. “But as of right now, we haven’t found any firearms or anything suspicious like that.”
Police say it’s not clear if the man was a student or had any connections with the university.
