The occupant of a burned car, who was found over the weekend, has been tentatively identified as Anthony Fluker, Sr., 70, of Chicago, Ill.
His body was found inside a car that had wrecked and then burned on Oxford Road in Lauderdale, Miss.
Authorities are hoping dental records will confirm their findings. They say this process could take several more days.
Officials say they believe Fluker was in the Meridian area to attend a funeral.
