Man Found Dead Inside His Burned-Out Car

A suspicious car fire claims the life of a Wood County man, and leaves authorities with a puzzling mystery. Around eleven Friday night, the Quitman fire department was called to a car fire ten miles north of Quitman.

By the time they arrived, the car was destroyed, with one man dead inside. According to relatives, the man inside the burning car was Charles Foley. No cause was readily apparent, and one of Foley's relatives says the whole incident is a mystery to her.

Because of the circumstances surrounding the death, the case is under investigation. The state fire marshal hopes to have a report on their findings on Monday.
