Burning car in Maine parking lot leaves 3 dead, described as ‘suspicious’

Police now turn to surveillance videos to shed light on the mysterious burning car that resulted in three dead bodies on Monday.

Stratham Tire manager Jeff Gordon said his surveillance video showed an orange glow just three minutes after vehicles headed in that general direction. The burning car, off camera, was about 100 yards away in a different parking lot.

Automatic Distributors have said their video showed a person running away from the location near Target Industrial Circle, an employee told the Bangor Daily News.

The car has Rhode Island plates and a radio host on the way to work said she saw the flames that popped the car’s tires and burst the windows.

“It was fully engulfed when I saw it. There was lots of popping and small booms,” Kat Walls said. “It was hard to tell it was a car at times because it was so engulfed.”

“It was horrifying — the idea that I sat there and waited for the fire department while people were burning inside,” she said. “I’m struggling with it, actually. It feels horrible.”

With the deaths declared suspicious, the bodies were recovered Monday afternoon from the sedan and taken to the state medical examiner’s office for autopsies that could help identify the victims, said police Sgt. Paul Edwards.
