Famed lawyer sets self on fire in Prospect Park protest suicide - NY Daily News

A nationally known advocate for gay rights and the environment died Saturday in a fiery Prospect Park suicide, with his self-immolation meant as a wake-up call to save the planet.

The charred remains of David Buckel, 60, were discovered shortly after sunrise when firefighters responded to a 6:40 a.m. blaze in the southwest corner of the sprawling Brooklyn park.

I don't get the symbolism. Wouldn't have drowning himself have been better? Dude seems to have been a bit confused.
