ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. —

Orange County detectives said surveillance photos captured images of a man, whose body was later found burned in a car outside a vacant home.

Detectives said the images show Frank Wright, 65, at a McDonald's early Wednesday morning before he was reported missing.

Officers said they have not received any leads that could help them find who killed Wright.

Orange County investigators said they hope the photos will lead them to the killer.

Authorities said Wright left his home last Wednesday morning headed for a family property in Apopka to drop off some fish he caught.
When he never returned, his family reported him missing and authorities found the Apopka house in disarray.

Less than 24 hours later, a fire broke out at a vacant home on Radiant Circle. Wright's burned body was discovered burned in a car that was at the house, officers said.

"We're hoping that someone can help us with additional details to bring whoever did this to justice," said Jeff Williamson of the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said they later found Wright’s truck and boat abandoned in Winter Park, but no traces of his killer. Officers said they haven't figured out why Wright was targeted.

"The fact that anyone would come to their demise this way is horrific, to say the least. Which is why detectives are really, really hoping somebody can give us additional details," Williamson said.

Authorities said they want to talk to anyone in the general area who has been in that McDonald's who may have seen him, heard him or knows his direction of travel. They said any detail is not too small to help piece together what happened to Wright.
