    Sharon sorry but this shocks me. Historically, we do not set each other on fire

    Oh dear, this is sad.
    How can you go about burning another human just like that ????

      But there is nothing that says exactly how he got on fire…so it would be wise to wait for further info rather than making assumptions.

    Circumstances are not evident as yet and ferrensics, biographics have to be done!

    I`m tired of hearing that bajans are not capable of committing crimes, it has to be someone from another country, eg. the arson on Tudor St. where 6 young ladies lost their lives, then who was arrested but bajans.
