The above video shows the tragic suicide of Memphis musician Jared McLemore. At 12:30 a.m. on May 13, McLemore began streaming on his Facebook page. The video begins with him, shirtless sitting cross legged. After leaving the frame for a few moments, McLemore returns and being pouring a liquid of his body. That liquid was kerosene. Before he can light himself on fire, a man, named as a patron of the bar where McLemore was planning to commit suicide, attempted to kick the lighter from McLemore’s hands. Despite this, the fire ignites and the frame is covered in flames. WREG reports that while the fire burned, McLemore ran into Murphy’s bar. His ex-girlfriend, Alyssa Moore, had been working on the soundboard during a gig at the bar. While he was doing this, attendees attempted to put the fire out with beer cups and whatever else they could get their hands on. When police officers arrived at the scene, they found the victim with severe burns. McLemore was rushed to a local hospital where he died from his injuries. The man who tried to save the victim also suffered burns and was taken to a hospital, but is expected to survive.
