With all due respect - you are the elitist. Excusing yourself from humanity and it's actions.
We are one.

He was testing his own will. He wanted to do such an act simply to see if he had the fortitude to go through with it. He's killed before but not as publicly or as daring as this, though his previous victim were probably found in public places. Unfortunately this would have given him a huge adrenaline rush and he will be savouring that feeling, this will only push him to push himself further. He was likely unaware of the camera, but I may be wrong on that.
He will not be foolish enough to have his burns treated, especially locally.
I don't like this one, he's seen too many movies and he feels he needs to go to great lengths to get himself 'known' in todays world.

A man is being questioned by police in connection with the death of a woman burned alive in the lift of her New York City apartment building. Police said a man smelling of petrol walked into a police station overnight and implicated himself in the killing. The 47-year-old man, who has not been charged, said he had started a fire, a New York Police Department spokesman said. The man's identity has not been released.

Is there no end to the # we do?
We won't be around much longer, thank you lord, because as well as wrecking each other, we are wrecking this beautiful planet.
Sorry if I sound like I'm having a go at you, but 'we' didn't do this #. At least, I know I didn't, so I'm not taking any responsibility for it.
You are not human? He was human and this new low is what we are capable of. How are you not responsible? Because you didn't do it? Your species did and catwhoknowsplusone is right. We all should be ashamed. Outraged certainly but a little ashamed of ourselves. "Course I am a little MORE ashamed of ourselves as we stoop to new lows everyday. If you do not recognize a problem there will never be a solution.

I have a feeling this is going to get worse before it gets better.
What makes you say it will get worse before it gets better?
Is this an ongoing thing? An epidemic? Fad? Trend?
Or just a conversation piece on your part?
Please explain your reasoning.

Rickey Causey, who said he was Ms. Gillespie’s nephew and has lived with her since late June, said his aunt was not romantically involved with the man. She had hired him to clear out her cluttered apartment earlier in the year, Mr. Causey said. He said the man had harassed Ms. Gillespie after she fired him on suspicion that he had stolen a VCR and a large cake pan among other things. In November, Mr. Causey said, the man stuck an invoice on Ms. Gillespie’s door that said she owed him more than $300; she did not pay him.
