Authorities are trying to identify the remains of a man found dead with a gunshot wound inside a fire-gutted, abandoned home.

The Camden County Prosecutor's Office says the man was found around 9:30 p.m. Sunday after a fire was reported in the home.

His body was charred beyond recognition. The victim had a gunshot wound to his head.

A 17-year-old boy from suburban Sicklerville was killed Friday a few blocks away in the south Camden neighborhood. That homicide has not been solved, according to the Courier-Post of Cherry Hill.
