NAPA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say the man who died after being spotted on fire on a highway overpass in Napa was the son of Napa County District Attorney Gary Lieberstein.
Sheriff's Capt. Tracey Stuart identified the man as Lieberstein's son, 31-year-old Adam.
He was spotted on fire on a pedestrian overpass above Highway 29 on March 26. Authorities had initially considered the possibility the incident was a homicide.
But Stuart says there are strong indications now that it was a suicide.
The district attorney contacted the sheriff's office a few days after the incident fearing that it was his son after not hearing from him since March 25.
Dental records confirmed the identity.
Stuart says the DA and his family were not aware of any problems their son may have had.
