FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — A woman says her father’s burned body was found in the trunk of a car several miles west of Fort Wayne International Airport.

Danisha Warren-Baker told The Journal Gazette that the body of her 51-year-old father, Steven Dwayne Turner , had been burned so badly authorities can’t tell whether he had been tied up. The Allen County Sheriff’s Department officials have termed his death suspicious, but have declined to comment on where in the car the body was found Wednesday morning.

The Allen County Coroner’s Office says the cause of death is still undetermined. The investigation into his death is ongoing.
