Body Burned-Autopsy

An autopsy is planned today for a beaten and burnt body found over the weekend in the back of a torched pickup truck in the Garden of the Gods park in El Paso County.

Firefighters discovered the body Saturday afternoon in the truck, which was on fire at the time.

They found the body under a layer of trash in the bed of the Chevrolet Sonoma truck.

Colorado Springs police haven't identified the body, which they believe is of a white man in his 20s.

They say the truck's owner isn't the victim.

Lieutenant Rafael Cintron says there were obvious signs of a beating.

But police are calling it a suspicious death now, not a homicide.
