Updated 7 years ago

18-year-old Alex Whitney of Farmington, Connecticut, was found Tuesday night in the middle of Duck Pond Road with his clothes burned off.

Investigators think that Whitney set the fire, after dousing himself with gasoline.

That’s based on statements he made to witnesses. A gas can and lighter were found nearby.

Whitney suffered burns over 60% of his body.

He was treated at Eastern Maine Medical Center before being flown to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.
