RCMP are investigating the death of a man whose body was found in a burning pickup in a field east of Innisfail on Thursday afternoon.
Police and the fire department responded to the call about 2:30 p.m. A burning pickup was found in the middle of a farm field off Range Road 273 near Township Road 352 about 10 km east of Innisfail.
The pickup was located several hundred metres into the farm field near a small clump of brush.
The identity of the man has not been determined. An autopsy is planned.
“As it is early in the investigation, few details are available at this time,” says Staff Sgt. Ron Campbell, of RCMP Strategic Communications.
The RCMP forensic identification section, police dog services and major crimes unit are also investigating.
