Body found inside burning vehicle in Herrin

 

HERRIN (AP) — Authorities in the southern Illinois town of Herrin are investigating the death of a person found inside one of three vehicles damaged in a fire on a bowling alley's parking lot.

The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan reports that an autopsy on 33-year-old Shaun Saltzman of rural Simpson preliminarily shows that he died of smoke inhalation early Saturday outside S.I. Bowl.

Fire officials say flames from one vehicle apparently spread to two others on the parking lot.

Herrin police are being assisted by the Williamson County Sheriff's Department.
