FORT MYERS, Fla.,- A horrific murder scene in Fort Myers. A body set on fire and now police are looking for a killer! The scene is right behind the Budget Rental Car building on Fowler Street in Fort Myers.

A startling discovery in an industrial area of Fort Myers. A dead body, badly burned, found lying next to a gold car.
"I pulled up and manager came running our and said there is a dead body behind the shop."
Witnesses say the sight of the body was unsettling. People in the area watched as police roped off Powell Street, to collect any evidence they could.
"I was trying to figure out if it was man or a woman and what happened. Was he or she murdered and then burnt? Just dropped off and burnt? What was going on?"
Fort Myers Police say the body found was a black man believed to be in his 30's or 40's. One person we talked to says, his neighbor heard chaos very early this morning.
"The woman doesn't want to speak but she said about 1:00 she heard some screaming," said Johnnie Standifer.
Police have since cleared the scene. The side of the wall burned, blood is still on the ground and on the wall, and seven evidence markers remain on the side of the building.
"I want to know who did it, what really went on, we in a world where everything else going around," said Standifer.
Police say there are several video cameras in the area, they will review them to see if anything was captured.
"It's probably just some shady stuff going on, you get people that do that."
