Burning Van Holds Body

The Anchorage Fire Department was joined by Anchorage Police Thursday evening when a burning van was found to contain a body.
Authorities responding to the 500 block of West Tudor Ave. Employees of Tokyo Garden reported that the van was on fire behind the restaurant. According to responding officers, restaurant employees were not aware there was any one in the van.
The van was recently sold to someone who had yet to register it. As investigators are trying to track down the owner, they are awaiting autopsy results to determine cause of death and identity of the body in the van.
