Man Who Set Himself on Fire at National Mall Dies


The man who set himself on fire Friday by dousing himself with gasoline has died from his injuries. He died Friday night at approximately 9 pm. According to accounts, the individual was so badly burned that he will need to be identified through DNA and dental records.  D.C. police received a call at 4:24 p.m. reporting the incident, and the fire was out by the time authorities arrived at the scene. This bizarre incident comes just days after 34 year old 34 year old Miriam Carey, a dental hygienist from Stamford, CT tried to ram the barricades at the White House and was later shot dead by police after a car chase through the DC streets.
