MINOT, N.D. – Authorities have identified a man found in an abandoned burned vehicle near Minot as Dennis Leith, 73, of Norwich.
The Ward County Sheriff’s Office received a report about 10 a.m. Tuesday of a burned vehicle on 167th Street Northeast, about 2 miles north of U.S. Highway 2.

The remains were removed and were sent to the North Dakota State Medical Examiner’s Office for identification.
No foul play is believed to have occurred, the sheriff’s office said.
Deputies believe the fire, which was out at the time they arrived, occurred Monday night.
