Investigators in New Jersey have identified a body that was found in a burning tow truck last month.

Officials said they had to use DNA to identify Jimmy Paulino, whose body was found burned beyond recognition in a tow truck on Interstate 80 in Knowlton Twp., Warren Co.

Investigators have not been able to determine how Paulino, 34, of the Bronx, died.

The tow truck is registered to a Paulino's Towing in the Bronx, but it still isn't clear if Paulino or another family member owns the business.
