The inquest into the death of a man who was found in a burnt out car will reconvene today.

David McLeman’s body was discovered in his Mercedes in Bride in April this year.

An inquest which was opened and adjourned in May found the 58-year-old died from burns and smoke inhalation.

The court heard how his body was so badly burnt that cellular tissue had to be taken from a pair of headphones to confirm it matched up with his tissue.

Coroner of Inquests John Needham will restart proceedings at 10am at Douglas Courthouse.
