As soon as I saw the title to this thread it reminded me of a similar thing happening a few years ago near where I live.
A 20 year old male was seen running down a street in the middle of the night engulfed in flames and screaming. He then collapsed in the road,
horrified neighbours who were woken by his screams called the emergency services, but he died a few days later from terrible burns.
It turned out the young guy was a heroin addict. He had been 'tooting' in someone's garden shed using a candle. He eventually succumbed to the hit
and fell asleep, but in doing so he knocked over the candle which set the shed alight. He was so out of it that he didn't feel a thing as he was
burning. By the time he woke up he was already in flames and the shed burning around him, that's when he ran screaming down the street. Awful.
Maybe something like this happened to the guy in the OP, and that's why he won't co-operate with police?
