An autopsy is scheduled Friday for a body found in a burned-out car in Lordstown on Tuesday afternoon.

The autopsy will be conducted to determine the person’s identity and also a cause of death. Lordstown police said the body was burned too badly to even determine if it was a man or a woman.

Police said a passerby called 911 after noticing the car on fire on an access road to a cell phone tower off Industrial Trace Road, which is just north of the General Motors Complex.

The death is being treated as a homicide and is being investigated by the state fire marshal, Lordstown police and the Trumbull County Homicide Task Force.

“Nothing has been off the table. We are looking at everything we can look at and we are trying to put the pieces together and determine exactly what took place,” said Lordstown Police Chief Brent Milhoan.

Police are asking the public for its help as well. Anyone with information should call Lordstown police at 330-824-2545. Callers can remain anonymous.
