The leader of the Ferguson protests was found dead with a gunshot wound inside a burning car early Tuesday.
Authorities found the remains of Darren Seals, 29, after they extinguished the fire in the car, reports CBS News.
“We were asleep and we heard this big, big boom … The next thing we knew, it was on fire. Like, flaming,” a woman who lived across the street told KMOV.
Officers responded to a call around 2 a.m Tuesday about a vehicle fire in Riverview, according to a statement from the police. After authorities put out the fire, they found Seals’ body with a gunshot wound.
