Investigators say fire victim killed self


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Investigators say a fire yesterday where a man was found dead was intentionally set. They also say the victim, George West Paylor, killed himself.

The WPD/WFD Arson Task Force says it determined the fire at 120 Cavalier Drive was intentionally set from inside the house. Investigators found accelerants in several rooms.

Police say Paylor, 40, was the only person found in the house, and several sources told investigators he lived there alone. Police say they found a lengthy note Paylor left and that it was also apparent Paylor died from a self-inflicted injury.
