In Concord, New Hampshire, a man poured gasoline on his twin sister and set her ablaze in front of her two children.
Tamika Crawford was found laying in a snowbank, burned badly after her brother Dwayne Crawford lit her on fire.
Police were called to the home after reports of a fire. When they found Tamika, she said, “My brother did this, my brother did this … you have to arrest him.”
He later admitted to officers that he was, in fact, the one who started the fire. “I did it, I lit her on fire,” he said to Officer Brendan Ryder.
“As Dwayne stated this, he displayed very little affect and expressed no emotion,” Ryder stated.
Dwayne Crawford has been charged with attempted murder and arson. He is being held without bail.
Tamika Crawford suffered third-degree burns to her body and was in critical condition when she was taken to the hospital.
Police are still investigating what may have caused such a ferocious attack. Both parties are known to police but not for anything this violent.
No one else was harmed in the incident.
