A 36-year-old Lockport man apparently committed suicide by setting fire to his car Wednesday morning on a lane off Rose Road in the Town of Batavia, authorities said.

Genesee County sheriff's deputies identified the victim as Martin M. Brant.

An autopsy confirmed the identity through dental records and revealed that the cause of death was carbon monoxide poisoning and burning. Investigator Timothy Weis said he did not know what ignited the fire, which consumed the small vehicle.
