Investigators believe Smith fatally shot Brice inside his car.

That car was found engulfed in flames in the area of 59th and Florence streets in Philadelphia just hours after Brice and Smith were seen at K Laundry in Yeadon on March 30.

No one was found inside the vehicle. The car was discovered about a mile from where police said Brice's body was discovered in the woods days later.
