Firefighters extinguishing a car fire Thursday morning on the northeast side of Indianapolis discovered a body inside the vehicle. Investigators are trying to figure out whether the person died before or after the fire, which occurred at about 8 a.m. in an alley in the 3000 block of North Gale Street. Neighbors said they had never seen the car before and speculated someone was trying to dump the body in their neighborhood.
