Emergency services were notified around around 12:25 of a vehicle that was on fire in Pointe aux Prairies nature park.

It was only after they put out the blaze that firefighters made the macabre discovery.

At that point, the investigation was transferred to the Montreal police, according to spokesperson Jean-Pierre Brabant.

He said investigators were on the scene, where a security perimeter had been set up. A command center will be set up.

“An autopsy will be undertaken on the body found in the vehicle, as no identification is currently possible,” Brabant added.

The car will also be inspected to determine the precise causes of the fire.
