A murder probe was opened after the victim was found by firefighters at an address in Plewes Close, Kensworth, at around 12.30pm on Friday.
Two men, aged 31 and 30, were arrested on suspicion of murder on Saturday.
Detective Chief Inspector Rob Hall said: “We have a team of detectives working on this to understand the exact circumstances of what happened, but would appeal to anyone with information to contact the investigation team.
“There will be an increased police presence in Kensworth over the coming days, to provide reassurance and to carry out various enquiries.
