Police believe the body of a man found in a burnt-out car in St Joseph Monday night is that of a 37-year-old taxi driver from St Helena. 

He was last seen at 6pm on Monday. 

The body was found in the back seat of a Nissan Sylphy at about 10:30 along Farm Road Extension. 

The body was burnt beyond recognition, Loop News was told. 

Items found in the vehicle, as well as other information unearthed by investigators, have led police to contact relatives. 

However, due to the condition of the body, DNA samples are expected to be taken today to confirm the identity.
