A body was found in a burned car Thursday north of Mora.

State police say they haven’t identified the body yet because it was burned beyond recognition. They don’t know if the fire was accidental.

The car was found around noon near N.M. Highway 518 in the Holman Hill area.

State police Lt. Craig Martin said Mora sheriff’s deputies first responded and they sought the assistance of state police investigators.

He said the state Office of the Medical Investigator will work to identify the body.
