Authorities are asking for the public's help in identifying a victim of a house fire in Camden early Saturday that killed a man and critically burned a woman.
About 3 a.m., a fire spread through two vacant rowhouses in the 600 block of Point Street, said Jason Laughlin, a spokesman for the Camden County Prosecutor's Office. The connecting wall between the properties had been knocked down, and a number of squatters had been living in the buildings.
The man was found dead and badly burned in a second-floor bedroom. He was wearing a religious medallion around his neck that investigators hope may help identify him. The man was described as about 5-foot-8 and very slightly built.
