Body Found Inside Burning Car on Disney Property

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on August 28, 2018

Disney officials have yet to release an official statement regarding an individual who was discovered dead inside of a burning car close to a miniature golf course owned by the entertainment giant in Orange County. Reports from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office indicate that the police were first contacted shortly after 4:00 in the morning on Monday, August 20th, in order to help the Reedy Creek Fire Department extinguish and examine a vehicle fire that was raging close to the Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course, a Disney-owned property.

When the deputies reached the specified address, 1209 Epcot Resorts Boulevard, they found the other emergency response crews dealing with the car in question. Police also discovered that there was a body inside of the car and that this person seemed to have been inside of the vehicle throughout the entirety of the blaze.

Currently, the identity of the deceased person has yet to be released. It is not clear if this is because the police have yet to contact the person’s family or if the person themselves has yet to be identified. News agencies are also still waiting on the police for information regarding the official cause of death, the make and model of the car, and any other information they might have regarding the circumstances surrounding the incident. In response to these requests, deputies indicated that there were no updates to add to the initial story but that they would provide them to the appropriate channels as soon as they became available.

Guests to Disney were understandably alarmed and concerned when they were finally notified in regards to the fire and death. Many expressed frustration due to the fact that they were not notified sooner. For their part, executives within the Disney corporation have yet to released any statements regarding the incident, thus following their traditional course of remaining tight-lipped regarding any and all negative incidents that occur around their properties.

As the investigation continues, it is believed that the Orange County Sheriff’s Office will continue to supply the public with information regarding the events, the identity of the deceased man, and, most importantly, just what happened to cause the fatal incident.
