Burned bodies still a mystery

Investigation of three bodies found in burned car outside Magalia continues

Investigators have yet to determine the identities of three bodies found in a burned vehicle last week on the Skyway.

Butte County Sheriff’s deputies and CalFire firefighters responded to a report of a vehicle fire on the outskirts of Magalia shortly after midnight on Thursday, June 13, finding a 2000 Acura TL engulfed in flames, according to a Butte County Sheriff’s Office press release.

Responders found the bodies—two in the trunk and one in the back seat—upon extinguishing the fire. No cause of death had been announced as of press time.

Though details are scarce as the investigation continues, BCSO confirmed that the Acura was stolen from a woman in Sacramento just days before the fire.
