The Hart family SUV is seen upside down on the rocky shoreline at the bottom of a 100-foot cliff along a remote stretch in Mendocino County, California, about 180 miles north of San Francisco.

A couple vacationing reportedly saw the body and pulled it from the surf before calling authorities.

The body appears to be that of an African American female, but the age and identity could not immediately be determined, said Lt. Shannon Barney.

An autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday but positive identification will most likely be done by DNA analysis which could take weeks, investigators said.

The two women in the crash were a married couple and had been under investigation by police and child services officials in the three states where they had lived.

Authorities believe the mysterious crash may have been intentional.

The vehicle was in the water for at least several hours before its discovery, Allman said.

On Wednesday, March 28, Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman said investigators were perplexed by the scene at the top of the cliff.

That's when the family noticed smoke inside the home and significant heat coming from the ceiling.

16-year-old Lexi Rae Hester was house sitting for her aunt and uncle when the fire happened.

Days before the family left Washington, child services officials there had begun investigating the Harts for "alleged abuse or neglect".

Authorities said the home was "neat and in order" with "no obvious signs of violence".

She told police she had spanked the child over the edge of the bathtub because of the child's behavior.

"The area is in the immediate vicinity of the recent Hart Family crash", the sheriff's office said in a news release.

Authorities received reports of child welfare concerns in three different states involving the Hart family prior to the family's fatal crash, records and interviews show. Devonte captured the world's attention in 2014, when he was photographed sobbing in the arms of a white police officer in Portland, where people had gathered in support of civil rights protests in Ferguson, Missouri.

"One of the girls came to the door at 1:30 in the morning and said that she needed help and the parents were not treating her properly, and (she) wanted us to protect her", neighbor Bruce DeKalb said.
