Forensic experts found that a fire in the fireplace of the sitting room where the badly burnt body was found, had not been the cause of the blaze that killed Mr Faherty.

The court was told that no trace of an accelerant had been found and there had been nothing to suggest foul play.

The court heard Mr Faherty had been found lying on his back with his head closest to an open fireplace.

The fire had been confined to the sitting room. The only damage was to the body, which was totally burnt, the ceiling above him and the floor underneath him.


Tragic, yet fascinating. I used to have a strange fear of SHC when I was a child, when i used to read the old books of the unexplained. And wondered why we never hear of recent cases.

But here we have one.

Thoughts? Has anyone attempted to debunk SHC?

perhaps the experts in spinal tap might be able to lend a hand and figure out what happened. Wasn't a drummer was he by the way?
