2 weeks after being lit on fire, Joseph Usher dies while receiving treatment

Joseph Usher

For two weeks, fifty-nine year old Joseph Usher was fighting for his life at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. Earlier this morning, he lost that battle and succumbed to severe burns to the head, back, chest and both arms. At around ten-thirty p.m. on May thirteenth, Usher was inside his sister’s yard at the corner of Central American Boulevard and Antelope Street, when he was attacked by a man who doused him and lit him on fire. A post mortem has not been conducted to determine the cause of death, and one person has been arrested for the incident.
