" Investigators believe the person was already dead when they were set on fire, KTLA.com reports. "
So the dead person set the investigators on fire? Tricky.....
(I'm actually all for the use of "they" as an indefinite singular pronoun--it's been used instead of the awkward "he or she" since Shakespeare's time at least. But I'm also a fan of clarity.... and in this case they had already identified the body as probably a man and referred to it as "he" for at least an entire paragraph.).
