Father talks about Academic Magnet student speaks about son's death

Reading from a prepared statement the father of Aaron Williams, Trace, appeared before media to talk about his son's death and to announce he would set up a scholarship fund in his name.

On Wednesday, in the parking lot of the Academic Magnet High School, Aaron had soaked his clothes in an accelerant and lit himself on fire. He later died at a burn center. 

Multiple media outlets covered Aaron's father's address, I'll refer you to The Post and Courier's write-up, and ABC News 4's video.
