According to a report from our news partners at KWTX, Copperas Cove police notified the Lampasas County Sheriff’s Office at approximately 1:45 PM on Thursday of a vehicle fire in the 2000 block of West U.S. Highway 190.
Officials discovered a four-door Ford pick-up truck inside a shallow gravel pit behind a cement business. When authorities looked inside the truck they found what they believe to be charred human remains in the driver's seat.
Officers are said to have found a semi-automatic pistol in the driver's seat as well.
Police were unable to identify the remains of the alleged person and vehicle at the scene.
