Police have spoken to a 14 year-old Sunshine Coast boy yesterday who was badly burned on Halloween.
The boy told police he saw three 16 to 18 year-olds in the park at Lipton street prior to being found alight at Sunrise Beach.
Detective Senior Sergeant Phil Hurst says they’re still unsure about the fire’s origin.
Phil Hurst: “His clothing has been subjected to scientific examination and there was no form of acceleration that was found on his clothing at all. He’s not aware of how the fire started. He just became aware that he was on fire and sought assistance from a house nearby in relation to putting the flames out.”
