AR State Police ID body found in burned out SUV

Posted: Updated:

Arkansas State Police have identified the body found badly burned inside an SUV in Miller County Thursday.

State police say it was a passerby that saw the burning SUV in a dry creek bed on Highway 67 at County Road 112 around 4:30 a.m. That's about 15 miles northeast of Texarkana.

Troopers say the vehicle was so badly burned, they couldn't tell at first if the victim is male or female. The fire also burned up the SUV's registration, license plate, and vehicle identification number.

The body has now been identified as 25-year-old Joseph Richard Postlethwait of Fulton, Arkansas.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact Arkansas State Police at 870-777-4641.
