    This has ‘accomplice’ and ‘get rid of the evidence’ written all over it.

    Hmmmm first I would ask who owns the home? The resale of this house will be a challenge in light of what took place inside the House. Maybe some one just wants it gone from the area as it will always be a reminder of the victims to those of us who live around here. Such a sad turn of events.

    Does anyone know if there were candles lit on the porch? I know there was a lot of stuff there at one point from people in the community. Also makes you wonder if the site of the house and the thought of what went on inside could have been too much for someone and they couldn’t take it.

    Somebody trying to tell somebody something?? That just sounds suspicious to me..But I’m no expert, so I’ll wait till the pro’s investigate it.

    Well, Mathew Hoffman is a convicted arsonist, so it was probably one of his”fans” trying to point out the fact that his legacy still lives on. If you ask me, I think they’re a bunch of cowards.
