Burning Body Found Hanging By Merry-Go-Round

The woman whose burning body was found in a Los Angeles park on Tuesday is an apparent suicide, according to Los Angeles police.

Los Angeles firefighters responded to the area of Griffith Park near its merry-go-round at about 12:30 p.m., according to Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.

Stewart said the body was of a woman, but no information on her age or identity has been released.

The body was hanging in the tree when it was found, according to KNBC-TV.

Police were called after visitors to the park saw a tree ablaze, and noticed there was a human body in the flames. Visitors alerted park rangers, who called the police.

The New York Post said the blazing tree was near the Griffith Observatory, not far from the Los Angeles Zoo.

Police said the individual died of self-immolation, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The LA Times, citing a detective whose name was not used, said the victim was likely someone who visited the park often.

“It appears to be self-immolation,” LAPD detective Michael Ventura, said, according to KABC-TV.

“This is going to be somebody who brought some gasoline, brought some lighters. We have had, they are rare, but we do have cases where people will self-immolate. Or they choose to set themselves on fire.”

“There are no indicators of foul play,”  Ventura said, according to NBC.

Some questioned that conclusion.

Ventura said there was nothing from the scene suggesting the victim was forced to commit the act.

LA Magazine said that in lieu of a name, the woman is being known as “Jane Doe 100.”

  1. The evil left teaches confusion and perversion as part of their quest for world domination. And people are surprised this happens in California?!??!

    • Well said Fred. I wish more people would realize this … that’s why the insane left promote violence, want to disarm us, defund our police and allow criminals run free.

  2. How does one hang and burn oneself?
    Same way a person hangs and shoots oneself with a shotgun.

    Wondering if this woman knows the Clintons.

  3. The party must have started themselves on fire before hanging themselves!
    Is this possible????? I WONDER? Looks like authorities do not want to pursue it further??

  4. A crap state like California… this is not a surprise They live by the victim means nothing and the criminal goes free.

  5. This is a macabre tragedy. Nobody knows if it was murder or suicide. The only thing we do know for sure is that it’s the work of the insane left. Whenever there’s a senseless murder, it’s always a Democrat! Kyle Rittenhouse, the school shooters… all had been on social media saying they’d follow Joe Biden into the depths of hell, carrying Antifa flags.
