Is this Japanese BBQ?

PHUKET – An unidentified person was burnt alive in their vehicle in the middle of Phuket. The age, sex and nationality of the person could not be identified because the fire left only ashes.

The owner of the car – a Japanese woman – owns a vehicle care business, and her husband has gone missing. It is believed that the husband is what we now see as ashy bones.

The fire took 30 minutes to die down; the Honda Civic was nothing more than a brittle chassis. The rescue team picked up three teeth in the vehicle and a blood-stained shirt 200 meters away from the scene.

Police deduced that the t-shirt belonged to the culprit responsible for killing the man.

The night of the crime, civilians reported seeing the vehicle pass the area a few times and someone telling the man in the vehicle that it was dead end and that the car could not go on. A while after that, the vehicle was found on fire.

Police suspect the culprits must have killed the victim and brought the corpse to the vehicle to set on fire.

Police believe there are more than two culprits and that they must be from somewhere else because they were not familiar with the roadway running into a dead end. The blood-stained shirt is still a mystery.
