The Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported he had suffered third degree burns to his face, arms and chest. Morinda West, Mr Marshall's sister, told the Australian he was sniffing petrol in his mother's house at the Goldfields Aboriginal community when police banged on the door and asked him to come out.
He went to the front of the house with a lighter and a two-litre orange juice container full of petrol, she said. "He must have put petrol on his face, then the policeman shot him with the Taser, that's when the flames happened." she said.
