Police: Man found in burning car committed suicide

By: Jesse Martinez
EL PASO, Texas The death of a man found inside a burning vehicle at Valley Creek Park Tuesday afternoon was ruled a suicide, police said.

As KFOX14 previously reported, a 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier was on fire at the Upper Valley park, and while extinguishing the fire, crews saw the body inside.

Police said Tuesday they were treating their investigation as a homicide, but on Friday, it was determined that the 21-year-old man was depressed and committed suicide, police said.

The cause of death is not known at this time.
