Cape Town – The charred body of a woman was found in the boot of a burning BMW at Diep River railway station in Cape Town on Thursday evening, police said on Friday.
"After the fire was extinguished, the burnt body of a female was found in the boot of the vehicle," police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Andrè Traut said.
Earlier that day, a 57-year-old woman was reported missing by a relative at the Diep River police station.
"[The woman] was last seen leaving her Constantia residence yesterday morning in her green BMW sedan," said Traut.
However, the police believe it is too soon to make an assumption or link the woman's disappearance to the burning vehicle.
