Medical examiner: Shelton man’s death a suicide

The medical examiner has ruled the death of Paul Czetwertynski as a suicide, Ansonia police are reporting.

Czetwertynski died Tuesday afternoon.

Based on information learned during the investigation, police said Czetwertynski doused himself in some sort of accelerant, believed to be gasoline, lit a match and ignited himself on fire.

Information learned during the investigation led investigators toward alleged domestic issues between Czetwertynski and his wife. Threats were allegedly made as to burning the residence down. His wife was at the residence when Czetwertynski lit himself on fire and she was able to flee without sustaining any injuries, police said.
