A call to a brush fire took a strange turn early this week.
A man’s body was found burning in the fire in a wooded area behind his home on Monday evening.
His wife is the one who called in the fire, authorities said.
“We’re calling it some sort of elaborate suicide,” said Kristin Helms, spokeswoman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
Helms said the man has been identified as Victor Gordon of 151 Scenic View Drive, Roane County.
