SOUTHBRIDGE- On May 1, 1993, a Dudley man shocked this community when he stood on a downtown sidewalk, doused himself with a flammable liquid and set himself on fire. He later died from his injuries.

Police Chief Daniel R. Charette reflected on that very public suicide recently as he talked about the range of force that police can use in dealing with violence.
