Man Shoots Video of His Son Lighting a 7-Year-Old Boy on FIre

A borough man has been arrested on charges he doused his then-girlfriend’s 7-year-old son with flammable liquid. The man’s own 15-year-old son then set the younger boy’s shirt on fire, Saxonburg police said.

Edward B. Myers, 35, allegedly used his cell phone to film the attack on May 25 at his Carol Drive home as he watched the boy burn.

Myers, the 15-year-old and his 11-year-old son, that same day of suspected torture, repeatedly shot the victim with airsoft guns and pellet-type guns, according to court documents.

…Investigators are not sure what motivated the alleged sadistic attack, however, one of Myers’ sons reportedly claimed it was a “prank.”
