LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Jefferson County coroner’s office has identified the man found set afire on a sidewalk west of downtown Louisville.

Deputy Coroner Jim Wesley told The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/1JE6xrh ) that 49-year-old Edward L. Vinson suffered multiple blunt-force trauma before being set on fire. Wesley said Vinson died of that trauma as well as from thermal trauma from the flames.

He was found dead early Sunday. Wesley said Vinson lived a block away in a vacant building at the time of his death.

The case is still being investigated. No arrests have been made.
