'Elderly couple' dead after car catches fire

Police found two people dead at a torched car in eastern Sweden on Sunday. While the bodies remain unidentified, officers suspect they belong to an elderly couple to whom the car was registered.


The car was found in Tierp, near Uppsala, on Sunday. A dead body was found inside the car and another outside.
"The person found outside the car is a man," Christer Nordström of the Uppsala police confirmed to the TT news agency.
Police said that the blaze was not related to a traffic accident, but added that they do not suspect any crime.
The bodies have been sent for forensic examinations, where they are hoped to be identified.
On Monday morning the Upsala Nya Tidning (UNT) reported that the deceased were likely a couple who were in their early eighties. The car, which was found on a deserted road near the woods, was registered to the man.
