Local News Man, toddler found dead in burned vehicle in Platte County Nick Starling 12:59

PLATTE COUNTY, Mo. — The Platte County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the suspicious deaths of a man and toddler, who were found Sunday in a burned vehicle north of Ridgley, Missouri.

A caller reported seeing human remains inside a burning vehicle shortly after 7 a.m. in the 20000 block of North County Road B.

Deputies said the remains of an adult male and a toddler are believed to be in the vehicle.

“The vehicle is extremely charred, so it’s not easily identifiable just by looking at it,” Platte County Sheriff’s Maj. Erik Holland said. “We’re going to be trying to locate VIN numbers and things like that to confirm the actual vehicle.”

The investigation remains ongoing, but authorities are calling the vehicle fire suspicious.

“We’re still working it as a suspicious death,” Holland said. “We work all deaths fully until we exactly know what the cause of the death is.”
