NRI Ketan Patel's body was identified with dental records after autopsy is being performed to find out who died in a burning Honda car over the weekend in Baldwin County.

Sheriff Bill Massee says passers-by noticed the car burning in a clearing off Lingold Road around 3 p.m. Saturday. Firefighters responded, and while putting out the fire, Sheriff Massee says they noticed human remains inside. He was not specific on where exactly they were found in the car. Massee then called in the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to help in the case.

Authorities also later traced the car's tag and tracked down some people connected to it. Captain Spires says Patel was 24 years old and comes from Milledgeville. The cause of death is listed as smoke inhalation. He says there were no signs of foul play at the scene and the investigation is continuing.

The car was used by Patel but registered in his father's name, said Baldwin county sheriff's department captain Chris Spires.
