Memphis police received a call to 717 Glankler Street where the burned man was found on the ground in a vacant lot shortly before nightfall.

Investigators combed the area.

Ellis Dewald says he came across the victim and called police. He says the man was burned from the waist down.

"I ain't ever seen nothing like that in my life. I don't know what made them do something like that," said Dewald. "That's torture. I wouldn't want my worst enemy to die like that."
