TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman says a transient found ablaze in the Tacoma, Washington, suburb of Parkland in March has died.

The News Tribune reports (https://is.gd/lpKVME ) that sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer says the death is being investigated as a homicide.

Troyer says the 46-year-old man died late Monday night.

He had been taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after bystanders found him on fire on March 12 outside a Parkland business.

Investigators say the man told one person that someone set him on fire. Troyer says he’s been hospitalized ever since.

The King County medical examiner’s office declined to release his name Tuesday.
