Detroit police are investigating after a bound body was found at a fire scene Wednesday morning on the city's east side.

Police say firefighters were responding to a call of a fire in the 14600 block of Alma Street, which is near Houston Whittier Street and Gratiot. Firefighters found a badly-burned body in a driveway. Police say the victim's hands and feet were also tied up.

Police say the body was found in the driveway of a vacant house, which was also burned.

Police haven't yet identified the victim. Initially, police thought the victim was a woman but say they can no longer determine that due to the severity of the burns. The body has been taken to the medical examiner.

A neighbor tells us he saw a suspicious-looking man on the street when he got up around 2 a.m. The fire was reported around 5 a.m. He has spoken with police.
