Sheriff investigating burned body in Columbus

COLUMBUS, Wis. (AP) -- Sheriff's deputies in Columbia County are investigating after a body was apparently burned in a vehicle in the township of Columbus.

A news release says deputies received the report about 11:15 a.m. Monday. The investigation is continuing and the remains have not been conclusively identified.

However, deputies say they are consulting with the Madison Police Department about a report of a missing person received by the department in December.

No further information was released Monday.
