BANGOR, Maine – Police say three bodies have been found in a burned-out car in a parking lot in Bangor, Maine, and investigators have declared the deaths suspicious.
Sgt. Paul Edwards says the fire was reported by someone heading to work just before 4 a.m. Monday. Witnesses say the fire was hot enough to burst the car’s windows and pop its tires, leaving a charred hulk.
The deputy chief medical examiner has been summoned to the scene to remove and identify the bodies.
The car was in the parking lot of a business called Automatic Distributors. The company is a wholesaler of parts and equipment for all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles, off-road motorcycles and other outdoor activities.
Investigators have set up command posts.
