Police have yet to say anything about the connection between this tragedy and the protest movement that has ignited the city since the death of George Floyd.



Minneapolis again bereaved. Shaken by riots since the death earlier this week of an African-American, George Floyd, shortly after his arrest, the city of Minnesota was the scene of a new drama whose circumstances are still mysterious. Very early Sunday morning, the body of a man with bruises was found near a burned car.

Police were called to the scene around 4 a.m. (11 a.m. in France) because of a burning car, said John Elder, a police spokesman for the city in the northern United States. After fire was extinguished by firefighters, officers found the body of a deceased man a few meters from the burnt out car.

The identity of the victim and the cause of death have not been released at this time. However, the police said that the man's body had bruises.

The area was closed to the public and criminal police officers were called to the scene. An investigation has been opened. This drama occurs when a curfew is in effect between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. An exceptional deployment of law enforcement was also in place to secure the city, plagued by chaos since the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police, a drama which sparked demonstrations in dozens of cities of the country.
