Suicide suspected in Itoman fire

Date Posted: 2011-04-21

Firemen responding to reports of an apartment burning in Itoman City’s Maesato district Monday made a grizzly discovery; the charred body of a man was found in a hallway.

The 4:04 a.m. blaze swept through two floors of the apartment building. Fifteen minutes into battling the heat and flames firemen found the body of a man believed to be about 50 years old. Itoman Police say the fire appears to have started on both the first and second floors.

Investigators believe the charred body is of a man living in a second floor apartment, and that he may have set the fires to cover a suicide. No other injuries were reported in the building, and both police and fire officials are continuing their investigations.
