A charred body was found after firefighters snuffed a vehicle fire on Jacobs Road at about 9 p.m. Thursday, according to the Norwalk Reflector.
Huron County Sheriff's Capt. Ted Patrick and a detective at the crime scene would not confirm these reports for the Sandusky Register.
Huron County coroner Jeff Harwood told the Reflector a body was found in the vehicle, and Sheriff Dane Howard told the Reflector it’s still early in the investigation, but “the circumstances seem extremely suspicious in nature.”
A Huron County emergency call log indicates 911 dispatchers received a call at 9:07 p.m. about a “fire explosion” in the 1500 block of Jacobs Road.
When reached by the Register Thursday night, Patrick would only say emergency crews responded to a vehicle fire.
At the crime scene, a Huron County detective declined to comment and directed any inquiries to Howard. Multiple phone calls to Howard's cell phone went unanswered, and Howard did not return a message left on his cell phone.
A dispatcher at the Huron County Sheriff's Office said any requests for information should be directed to Patrick. The dispatacher then forwarded the call to Patrick's voice mail.
