Woman’s body found in burning car near Trier

Police are appealing for witnesses in last night’s car blaze on the motorway near Trier-Ehrang. When firefighters arrived on the scene, they made a gruesome discovery: a charred body was inside.

It has since been confirmed that the body was that of a woman, although her identity is yet to be determined.

Witnesses reported the incident to emergency services, but it is unclear how long the car had been burning before they arrived on the scene, or how the accident had occurred.

An investigation was therefore launched, and police have asked the public for any information. The car was an older Mazda 323 was standing on a parking lot along the B422 between Kordel and Trier-Ehrang.

Police want to know if anyone came across this car on the evening itself or even beforehand. Anyone with information is asked to contact Trier police on (+49) 651 9779-2290.
