Police Spokesman ASP Claude Weekes has confirmed that law men are conducting an investigation into the death of a man who was set ablaze in February.
The man has been identified as Davidson Daisy.
He died at the Princess Margaret Hospital on Sunday, March 22.
The incident took place on February 7.
It is reported that Daisy was doused with a flammable liquid and set on fire while he slept on a mattress in a run-down building next to the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Pottersville.
The incident had links with a $30 drug deal that went bad, according to information received by DNO.
The incident took place in full view of several eye witnesses in a house that is a haven for many homeless people.
Daisy was first a patient at the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital and subsequently at the Alford Ward.
The brutality of the incident has shocked many Dominicans and there have been calls for swifter action by the police in investigating the matter.
