A gay man and attorney who worked on high-profile LGBT cases, including a challenge to the Boy Scouts’ ban on homosexual members, set himself on fire on Saturday at a public park in New York City to protest fossil fuels and climate change, according to a suicide note.

The charred remains of David Buckel were found by a jogger in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park.

The Daily Mail reported:

David Buckel, 60, was found in the park at 6.30 a.m. on Saturday before hundreds descended on it to enjoy the warm spring weather.

He left a note in a bag for police which read: ‘My name is David Buckel and I just killed myself by fire as a protest suicide.

“I apologize to you for the mess,” the note said.
