Detroit police opened an investigation last week after mummified remains were found in the garage of an occupied home.
A would-be homebuyer made the shocking discovery Thursday, Fox 2 Detroit reported.
The body was entombed in the backseat of a dust-covered Plymouth that was 25 or 26-years-old, the Detroit News reported.
It appears the body had been there for years and was beyond the decomposition stage, the paper reported, citing a spokesman for the Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office.
