COPPERAS COVE, Texas (KWTX) - Charred remains were discovered Thursday in a burned vehicle behind a business in the 2002 block of West U.S. Highway 190 in Copperas Cove.

The Lampasas County Sheriff’s Office received a call at around 1:45 p.m. Thursday from the Copperas Cove Police Department advising of a vehicle fire in that area.

When officers arrived they discovered a burned-out four-door Ford pickup truck in a lower gravel pit behind a cement business with charred human remains in the driver’s seat.

They also found a semi-automatic pistol in the seat.

Authorities are hoping an autopsy will help identify the person.
