He was also shot before the SUV was torched along with his body.
The rapper, Kampane, real name Rhian Stout, was so badly burned it took a day for police to identify the body.
The New York Daily News reports:
The 33-year-old’s corpse was discovered about 8 a.m., crammed inside the back of a black Chevy Tahoe with New York license plates that was parked in a residential neighborhood in Paramus, N.J., authorities said.
Investigators believe Kampane was killed elsewhere and then ditched in Paramus.
