View Full Version : KC Hereford House Arson Update

OK, a few months ago I posted some information about an arson fire at the Hereford House in KC. A lot of members here liked that place before it was destroyed. Now the ATF has released new information and raised the reward to $5000. Below is a link to the news article and a picture of the suspect. In summary the ATF is confirming it was gasoline that was used as a fuel and that there was not any forced entry to the building. They also point out another interesting fact. The day of the fire and a few days after, the owner was cooperating fully with local, state and federal officials. But 2 dyas later he hired an attorney and has not spoken since. Now I am not saying he was involved anyhow, but that is suspicious. It sure raises suspicion with my retired law enforcement brain.

I thought from day one that it was probably insurance fraud.
