Burned car’s owner identified

The sheriff’s office and the Junction City police have identified a car found burned up March 3 on 350th Rd. just west of US-77.

The Chrysler had been reported stolen in Junction City. Sheriff Rob Craft said a state trooper was able to locate vehicle identification numbers, and the sheriff’s office spoke with the Junction City police department.

Craft said Cheryl Murray, wife of the car’s owner, told him she had no clue who might have stolen the car. No one was found near the vehicle and the tags had been removed before the car was set on fire, undersheriff David Huntley said at the time.
