Man Keeps Campfire Going After Wife's Mysterious Death

A area man is keeping a campfire burning until he finds out how his wife burned to death.

Thomas Ostrander has kept a campfire burning for nearly a week since his wife's mysterious death.

Neighbors discovered the body of 51-year-old Carol Ostrander near the campfire mid-November at a campsite where the couple lived for the past two years in this north Okaloosa community.

Okaloosa County sheriff's investigators are awaiting laboratory results, expected in six to eight weeks, to help determine why she died and whether it was an accident or foul play.

In the meantime, Ostrander plans to keep feeding the fire.
