Fatal House Fire Is Suspicious

A body is found in a burning home in Tyler, and foul play is suspected. 59-year-old Marlin Wooten of Longview was pronounced dead at the scene of a house fire on North Moore in Tyler early this morning. Tyler police were called to the scene when fire officials determined arson was a possibility.

"This is more unusual in that we have a fire that looks suspicious, it may be arson, so if that's the case, then we have a murder," said Tyler Police Officer Chris Moore.

Wooten's body was sent to Dallas for an autopsy. The owner of the residence was not home at the time of the fire.
