VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department is investigating after a body was found inside of a burned vehicle in Victorville.
It happened at about 4:19 am, on January 2, 2022, at the Casa Bella Apartments located in the 16900 block of Nisqualli Road.
Victorville City Fire was dispatched and upon arrival, firefighters located the vehicle fully engulfed with flames and worked quickly to extinguish IT.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Mara Rodriguez told VVNG deputies responded to the apartments after a deceased person was found in a vehicle that was on fire.
According to a resident who asked to remain anonymous, the deceased person is reported to be a woman in her 40’s that lives inside of the complex.
The woman told VVNG she had her bedroom window open and heard a woman screaming. She got up to check what was going on that’s when she saw the vehicle on fire. The woman said the vehicle was parked very close to the trash can wall and believes this was a freak accident and not a homicide.
