HOLBROOK, Ariz. -- The Navajo County Sheriff's Office has identified a body found Tuesday afternoon near a burned truck in a rural portion of Navajo County.

The four-door pickup truck appeared to have caught fire after getting stuck in the mud and snow off of Texas Lane east of White Mountain Lakes, according to the sheriff's office.

The burned body of James C. Grazier, 60, of White Mountain Lakes, was found lying outside the vehicle.

Detectives determined Grazier's clothing caught fire and said it appeared that he rolled in the dirt to try and extinguish the flames.

The cause of the vehicle fire is still under investigation and the results of an autopsy are pending. At this time, no foul play is suspected.

Anyone with information about Grazier's death is asked to call 928-532-6060.
