  • The spot where Aijalon Gomes was found burning

Aijalon Gomes gained global attention several years ago after he was detained for illegally entering North Korea from China, Fox News noted. The reclusive regime sentenced Gomes to eight years of hard labor for illegally entering the country from China.

An off-duty California Highway Patrol officer first spotted Gomes on fire late Friday night in a lot near 5200 Pacific Highway.

An American man who was freed from a North Korean labour camp in 2010 burned to death in San Diego last week.

Police said his death appears to have been either an accident or suicide.

The officer stopped to try to help Gomes while crews from the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department (SDFD) arrived.

Aijalon M. Gomes, 38, had recently moved to San Diego from Boston, and police do not believe his death is the result of homicide, San Diego police homicide Lt. Todd Griffin said.
