man identified in burning car incident

LAUGHLINTOWN — An investigation remains underway into a burning car - and body inside it - found in a Ligonier Township parking lot alongside Route 30 on Tuesday.

But Westmoreland County's coroner’s office says it appears the death was not a homicide, saying investigators are looking into what might have caused Jay Francis Larva's sport-utility-vehicle to ignite and if the man might have had a medical issue at the time.
