Chicago firefighters made a grim discovery while responding to a car fire on the city's far South Side. They found a charred body inside the car. Crews were called to a secluded stretch of East 130th Street near the Bishop Ford Freeway Sunday night. After they put out the fire, firefighters discovered the body in the trunk.

The medical examiner's office is now working to identify the body and determine an exact cause of death.
