HENRY, Va. (AP) -- Police say remains found in a burned vehicle near the Franklin-Henry county line are human.

Franklin County Sheriff's Office Lt. Phillip Young tells media outlets that a passer-by discovered the vehicle in a remote area on Sunday while looking at property that's for sale. Investigators found remains inside the vehicle. The remains later were determined to be human.

Young says investigators are still working to identify the remains and the vehicle.
