Man sets fire to home before committing suicide, police say

The State Fire Marshal's Office says a Hartford man set fire to his home before hanging himself Thursday.

According to the Medical Examiner Office Daniel Stasulis, 57, of Hartford, committed suicide by hanging. Fire investigators believe Stasulis spread a flammable liquid throughout the house before lighting it on fire. Sgt. Joel Davis with the State Fire Marshal's Office says a passer-by saw the fire, ran around the back of the home and found Stahulis' body hanging from the deck.

According to Maine State police, Stahulis led police on a low speed chase through several towns in southern Maine back in 2012.
