Catch Culprits who Brutally Set Man on Fire on Christmas Eve

Target: Residents of Miami-Dade County

Goal: Find those who savagely set a man on fire on Christmas

Darrell Brackett was set on fire on Christmas Eve next to at the U-Gas station at 4700 NW 27th Ave in the Miami-Dade County. Brackett and his girlfriend were on their way home from dropping off guests after a holiday cookout when they ran out of gas. He told his girlfriend to wait while he walked to a nearby gas station. What happened next is unclear. On his way back from getting fuel, someone set fire to Brackett. He now has burns on over 75 percent of his body. He is currently being hospitalized at Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he is touch-and-go. There is no current suspect, but it is believed that three men may have committed this savage act. As nothing is known about the culprit(s), the citizens of the greater Miami-Dade county need to keep their eyes and ears open to any information they may encounter, and immediately notify the police.

Given the circumstances, it was probably a random attack. Whoever did this treated Darrell Brackett like an animal. While doctors are doing everything they can, they said they don’t have any skin to work with. To commit this offense against another human being is beyond the normal scope of cruelty—it’s pure evil. If Brackett can recover form the intense burns that have claimed most of his body, he will be in constant pain and have to struggle with this for the rest of his life. No one should get away with doing that to another person. As Brackett’s mother said in a press statement, someone had to have seen something.  If anyone has seen or heard anything, they can anonymously call the Miami-Dade County Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
