A post mortem examination is being carried out today on a body found in a burnt out vehicle in forest between Taupo and Tokoroa yesterday.

Police finished the examination of the scene and removed the body from the location, just off State Highway one, last night.

Detective Senior Sergeant Graham Perks, said: "There is nothing at this stage that suggests that this death is suspicious, however enquiries are ongoing and the post mortem examination needs to be completed to provide us with information about the cause of death. It may be some time before full results of that process are known."

Police believe that they know the identity of the deceased but will not comment any further until identity has been confirmed and family have been advised.
