According to the authorities, inside the car, a white Ford Runner from 1999, several belongings of the man were found, without specifying what it was.

In addition, a body in an advanced state of decomposition was located outside the car, which, apparently, would be 79 years old Michon.

“It is presumed that the skeletal remains belong to this foreigner, so they were removed and taken to the Judicial Morgue for forensic analysis, which will allow certainty that it is this person,” explained the OIJ through the press office.

It revealed that the vehicle was spotted by some walkers.
