New London Fire Marshal Vernon Skau comprehensive the brand new night in a report published this week, that laid out several potential sources for the fire, such as"carelessly discarded smoking material,""the misuse of feces,""carelessness or an intentional act by Hsieh."
Hsieh subsequently went to a drop adjacent to the home before his planned visit to Hawaii early the following morning.
Skau composed that Hsieh could have been drunk, as liquor bottles, a marijuana pipe, and nitric oxide containers were present in the drop, but it's uncertain if his possible handicap played any part in the flame.
During the upcoming few hours, buddies checked in on him regular intervals, and also two little fires were extinguished -- just one which began once a blanket caught fire by a candle that was lit, and yet another that began once Hsieh lit a little plastic bag to stay warm.
Multiple 911 calls in the nighttime show Hsieh's buddies' attempts to get him from the drop after the final deadly fire started approximately 3:20 a.m.
1 caller in the scene told the 911 operator which Hsieh had been barricaded in an area which has been on fire.
"We are not getting a reply from him. We are not getting a reply ," she told the operator.
"We want help when possible. A person's locked in a room with a passion," another individual told a 911 operator. "He is locked in a storage space."
Police don't feel that any criminality has been involved.
