Authorities are investigating the discovery of an unidentified person in a burning vehicle on Yukon Avenue near Stoner Street.

Authorities responded to a call received at 11:12 p.m. Saturday reporting a sport utility vehicle fully engulfed in flames, Akron Police Lt. Rick Edwards said. After the fire was extinguished, a body was found in the vehicle.

As of Sunday evening, the victim had not been identified, Edwards said.

The victim’s name will not be released until a positive identification is made and family members are notified, a spokesman for the Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office said.

An autopsy is scheduled for today.

Akron Police Capt. Dan Zampelli said no additional details were available Sunday. The incident remains under investigation.
