Musician Set Himself On Fire And Ran Inside Ex-Girlfriend’s Bar On Facebook Live
Facebook Live is again the online vehicle that another disturbed person has chosen to broadcast their death.
According to WREG, 33-year-old Memphis, Tennessee musician Jared McLemore logged on to Facebook Live, soaked himself in kerosene, set himself on fire and ran inside the bar where his ex-girlfriend works.
“This overwhelming smell of kerosene filled the room” said Jim Duckworth, who had just finished playing a set with his band, Billie Dove. “Before you see anything, the smell filled the room.”
Duckworth and his girlfriend and bandmate, Kimberly Koehler, said some people froze in fear, wondering if it was a stunt.
“It looked like a movie, like someone wearing a flame-retardant suit,” Koehler said. “There were some people who thought that it was a joke.”
McLemores’s girlfriend had a restraining order against him due to a long history of domestic violence incidents over the years, but it’s said he refused to stay away from her.
The police report states that another man suffered serious burns when trying to kick the lighter out of McLemore’s hand prior to setting himself ablaze.
This going “live” to die thing has got to stop.
