The name and cause of death of a Wilbarger County man who was found in a burned vehicle in February has been released.

The Wilbarger County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the body found inside the vehicle is that of Hillary Southall Junior, 77.

The heat from the engine exhaust system then ignited the dry vegetation, which caused the vehicle to catch fire.
