DEVILS LAKE -- Investigators have identified a Florida man who was found dead inside a burning vehicle this week in the parking lot of a Devils Lake Walmart.

Milton Feliciano, 34, was recovered from the burning car that was extinguished Wednesday evening at 1424 Highway 2, Devils Lake Police Chief Joseph Knowski said Friday. There is no foul play suspected in the case, Knowski said, adding the incident doesn’t appear to be the result of a criminal act.

Firefighters were called at 5:37 p.m. Wednesday to the scene for a report of a car fire. The flames were put out quickly, but firefighters discovered a body inside the vehicle, said Cory Meyer, assistant fire chief for the Devils Lake Fire Department.

Feliciano previously lived in Jacksonville, Fla., but moved to Devils Lake, where he was residing before the incident, Knowski said. The case is under investigation and the body was sent to Grand Forks County for an autopsy, the police chief said.
