LIGONIER, Pa. - A 77-year-old man found dead in a burning car behind a Ligonier Township bar wasn't murdered, though investigators have yet to determine if his death was an accident or suicide.
Westmoreland County Deputy Coroner Sean Hribal said 77-year-old Jay Francis Larva, of Southwest Greensburg, died of smoke inhalation and burn injuries.
His body was found when firefighters were called to the car fire just before noon Tuesday behind the Washington Furnace Inn.
Township police were continuing to investigate how the fire started. Once that's determined, the coroner may be able to issue a final ruling on the manner of Larva's death.
