    More worrying than the article- is the fact that the DM has apparently published a piece of writing which does not make me explode with fury... how strange. I would like a bit more information- but at first glance this seems fairly balanced- for the love of God- SOMEONE POINT OUT THE FLAWS!!!!..

    He`s a Firestarter. A twisted Firestarter. ....and an instigator, to boot!

    "Foul play appears to have been ruled out, with Karnan Perumal saying that he and his wife would never be `crazy to burn our own baby`."

    Really? THAT`s all it takes to dispose of suspicion?

    The explanation is simple. This is the anti-christ.

    @ Draculya: I`m with you. That child should be removed from that household ASAP. I have no doubt that a hidden video camera would reveal the husband or wife swabbing the baby with lighter fluid or something similar and applying a match.

    Munchausen by proxy syndrome (MBPS) is a known disorder of parents and has been documented countless times. Spontaneous human combustion? Puh-leez.

    Madduck, you were asking for someone to point out fault with this DM article, so here it is: The article violates the principle of Occam`s razor. Rather than attributing this poor child`s burns to what is almost certainly a case of child abuse by a mentally-ill parent, the reporter here attributes the cause to an implausible phenomenon that`s never once been documented.

    There may be an innocent explanation in that, you know, they`re applying something flammable (that they don`t know is) to the baby`s skin and then smoking near it? Or perhaps they`re applying something to the skin that reacts with the detergent residue on the sheets, or whatever?

    But, nah, likely one or both of them are just lighting him up. I think Squrlz4Sale nailed it: MBPS. :-(

    Sounds like classic `Munchausen by proxy syndrome` to me. @Squrlz4 is correct!

    It`s usually the mother doing it. Hard to say if the father`s in on it too, or just plain dumb.

    MSBP is a terrible thing! Stories like this just feed the urge...
