Galway, Ireland, died of kidney failure or heart attack is a complication that has been prevalent in diabetics. But in Ireland, people with diabetes die of a strange body that is suddenly on fire under mysterious circumstances.
Michael Faherty, 76 years old male from Galway, Ireland recently discovered lifeless in his own home. Grandfather patients with type 2 diabetes is known does have complications of high blood pressure, but certainly not died of a heart attack.
Judging from the condition of the charred and almost to ashes, certainly Faherty died of burns. Surprisingly, the coroner found no signs of kerosene or other fuels so that the alleged suicide can be ignored.
Another anomaly is encountered by forensic officers, there was no damage to other objects in the house Faherty. In addition to the charred body almost to ashes, only the floor and ceiling around the location of his body was found just looks a little burnt.
Head of the forensic team that examined this case, Dr. Kieran McLoughlin ensure Faherty died from a medical condition known as Spontaneous Human Combustion (SHC). Conditions expected for the first time discovered in Ireland this causes a person’s body burns suddenly.
“This incident has been thoroughly investigated and I conclude this is the SHC, a phenomenon that has yet to be explained adequately,” said Dr. McLoughlin was quoted as saying by The Irish Independent
The fire that appears on SHC arise spontaneously as a result of chemical reactions that occur in the body, without involving external heat from the environment. Similar to the case Faherty, the forensic team also did not find any objects that might be a match and lit a fire as electrical appliances.
Although very rare, documented cases of SHC has happened hundreds of times around the world in the last 300 years. It’s just that not everything is actually examined by the experts, so there is also the only form of the stories are exaggerated.

- Most victims are overweight or alcoholics.
- The body will be scorched, but the room around the victim’s body is still quite intact.
- Victim’s body will turn yellow and is usually around the victim arising foul oil smell.
- Trunk of the body including the chest, abdomen and pelvis can really burn, but part of the leg or clothing can be still intact.
