WEST MILFORD, N.J. – A burning Jeep found by West Milford police Sunday night contained a body that as of Monday afternoon still hadn’t been identified, authorities said.
The gray 2007 Cherokee apparently ignited in a crash, police said.
Officer Matthew Kloo came upon the fully engulfed vehicle off Clinton Road just before 10 p.m. Sunday, Lt. Stephen Singerline said early Monday evening.
A large section of the wooded area had also caught fire, he said.
West Milford Fire Companies 2, 1 and 4 responded and doused the flames, after which the body was found, the lieutenant said.
He asked that any possible witnesses contact West Milford police: (973) 728-2800 .
