Milwaukee police made a grisly discovery Monday morning, July 8 after a vehicle burst into flames near 9th and Cleveland.
Police said officers were called to the scene around 3 a.m. After firefighters with the Milwaukee Fire Department extinguished the flames, a search of the vehicle revealed there was a body inside. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
"I heard an explosion at about 10 to 3," said Mary, a neighbor who did not want to provide her last name.
The fire happened right in front of Mary's living room window.
"I just felt sorry for whoever was in the vehicle," said Mary.
