The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday that an Olathe man found dead early Sunday inside a burning car was not the victim of foul play.

Authorities did not release the cause of death for 61-year-old Jerome Stonebraker but said there was no criminal activity involved.

His body was discovered about 5:30 a.m. Sunday after deputies and firefighters were called to the scene of a car on fire at 183rd Street and Clare Road in rural Johnson County.
