PINE BLUFF, Ark. — Pine Bluff police are investigating what they are calling "a suspicious circumstance," after the fire department put out a vehicle fire and a body was found inside.
Officers were dispatched to 2300 E. Pullen at around 6:45 p.m. in response to a vehicle fire. Once officers arrived and the fire was put out by the Pine Bluff Fire Department, a body was found inside.
