PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, MI  (WKZO) --    Police have an idea who the man was who died when he caught fire and burned from head to foot along U.S. 131 in Plainfield Township this weekend.  He was reportedly from Mississippi, but little else has been released, including how he managed to catch fire along side a highway in the middle of the day short of spontaneous combustion.   They say they need a medical examiner to confirm that the man is who they think he is.

Passersby stopped and beat out the flames but it was too late. He died later at the hospital with burns over 100% of his body.
