Police have identified the driver found dead in a wooded area nearly eight hours after his car was found ablaze in Morris County over the weekend.

Anthony Zaccaro's body was located in a wooded area near Lynn Park, in Lincoln Park, about a half-mile from where his car was found burning on Ungerer Road around 7:15 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 21, according to various news reports and Morris County Prosecutor Robert J. Carroll.

A GoFundMe for the Sussex man's family says he leaves behind his fiance, Hannah, and two children, Brooklynn and Ryamond.

"This unexpected and gutwrenching loss leaves not only emotional wreckage, but also a large financial burden, as Hannah is a loving stay at home mom," the page reads. 

The cause and manner of death are pending findings of the Morris County Medical Examiner’s Office. There was no indication of suspicious criminal activity.

The park is where part of the ninth episode of Season 1 of "The Sopranos" was filmed, according to NorthJersey.com. Members of the Roxbury High School soccer team featured as extras.

"This is an active and ongoing investigation and is related to the investigation near Lynn Park," the MCPO said. "There is no threat to the community."
