The bodies, burned beyond recognition, have not yet been identified. The cause of the grisly incident is also unclear. “We are investigating in every direction,” a police spokesman said.
Residents reported the blaze on an empty street near Schönefeld Airport to police in the early hours of the morning. The deceased could be the wife and children of a man who sought the help of the police to find his family.
"He is not currently a suspect," the spokesman said.
The completely destroyed car is now being examined by state investigators.
“We presume that it was the family’s vehicle,” said the spokesman.
The police are now asking residents to whether they noticed anything conspicuous.
