An autopsy was scheduled for Saturday on the body of a woman found in a burning vehicle in a parking at the UCSD, a police lieutenant said.
Several people made a 911 call about 9:20 p.m. Friday to report a burning vehicle in the east commuter lot on campus in the 3600 block of Voigt Drive, said San Diego police Lt. Kevin Rooney.

Firefighters put out the fire and after examining the interior of the vehicle, found the body of the woman inside, Rooney said.
