Longueuil police say they have ruled out foul play after a body was found in a burning car on Montreal's South Shore.

A passer-by found the burning car on a rural road between Boucherville and Sainte-Julie Wednesday morning.

Police now say the victim is a 64-year-old man reported missing this morning. They believe he committed suicide.

Longueuil Const. Mark David said a woman who was driving on Anjou Road noticed the smoke and called the fire department.
