THE badly burned remains of a woman have been found in a Spanish park.
Police were called at 9.30am this morning (December 29) when a man walking his dog made the grisly discovery in the Parque de Polvorines in the town of Monteagudo in the Murcia region of Spain.
Local Police and Guardia Civil arrived to find the dead woman, who has not yet been named by police. Her badly charred body had a can of petrol by its side and her car was nearby.
Her body has been taken to the Institute of Legal Medicine in Murcia, where a post mortem examination will take place.
The autopsy will confirm whether the woman died from burns or if she was already dead before being set alight.
If she died earlier, investigators say, the killer probably tried to dispose of the body by burning it, without success.
