LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Jefferson County coroner’s office has identified the man found set afire on a sidewalk west of downtown Louisville.

He was found dead early Sunday. Wesley said Vinson lived a block away in a vacant building at the time of his death.
The case is still being investigated. No arrests have been made.
