ANCHORAGE - Anchorage police say they have positively identified the man found dead last week inside a burning van.

Police say the body of 28-year-old Karl Leroy Cox Jr. was in the van on fire Thursday night behind the Tokyo Garden Restaurant on west Tudor Road in Midtown Anchorage.

Police have not said whether investigators believe foul play was involved in the death.

Employees of Tokyo Garden called in the fire, unaware someone was inside.

Police last week said the van had been sold recently and that the buyer had not re-registered it.
