Centre County Coroner Scott Sayers was called to Bald Eagle State Forest to a scene where a vehicle was on fire and a man was found dead about 10 feet away from it.
Sayers would not comment on the cause or manner of death, saying it was under investigation. He also declined to identify the man, which authorities release after the family of the deceased is notified.
Sayers said the cause of death will be determined via an autopsy that he has not scheduled.
Centre County dispatchers called the Millheim Fire Company to the scene at 3:32 p.m. Thursday. Sayers said the scene was at Winklebleck Road.
