SIOUX CITY | An autopsy has been scheduled for Monday for a man found dead in a car fire Sunday in Sioux City.
The autopsy will be conducted at the Iowa State Medical Examiner's facility in Ankeny, Sioux City Police Department spokesman Lt. Pat McCann said.
McCann said police did not plan to release the victim's identity until after the autopsy has been completed. Investigators also will not determine if foul play was involved until after the autopsy, McCann said.

Witnesses said the vehicle was parked outside a home at 1115 Logan St. when it caught fire and it sounded as if gunshots were going off as the fire engulfed the vehicle.
