A report of a burning car in Tucson has launched a homicide investigation.
Tucson firefighters responding to a 911 call about a vehicle fire in the desert found a person's dead body in the car's trunk after the fire was put out.
The vehicle appeared to be a silver two-door passenger vehicle.
Police said a crowd of people gathered at the scene as the first officers and firefighters responded Thursday.
However, most of the people left as police began trying to speak with them.
Detectives want anyone who noticed anything to call authorities.
