UPDATE: Waterloo PD Now Investigating Stabbing and Man’s Body Found in Burning Car

We have an update, now, on a story we first brought you early this(Fri) morning.

Waterloo police and firefighters are now investigating a man’s body found in a burning vehicle, just a few minutes after both departments responded to the stabbing of a woman.

The stabbing victim was found at a home on Burbank Avenue about 2:15.  She was taken to MercyOne Medical Center to be treated and is expected to survive.

By 2:20, police and firefighters were on their way to an SUV fire near the corner of Kimball Avenue and Park Lane…and the man’s body was discovered inside.   Authorities say it appears the SUV’s passenger compartment had caught fire while the vehicle was in motion, and it came to a stop against a utility pole.

Police say the vehicle was similar to one seen leaving the area of the Burbank Avenue stabbing.
