House Explosion Update

On friday, they arrested 3 people in relation to the house explosion. Everyone and their dog knew these homeowners had to be involved and now there is proof. The information investigators found is unbelievable. Apparently, this was their second attempt to blow up their house. Here is a link if you want to read more:

What were they trying to accomplish? Was it some sort of insurance scam or were they just out to hurt people? I am most confused.

The tv bit said they were trying to get out from under a mountain of debt.

What a bunch of a-holes. Killing their neighbours? Damaging 80 houses? Wow, there's a very special place for these types of people. So sad. Sad

Yes, it was insurance fraud. Apparently the boyfriend and his brother have a history of insurance fraud dating back to the 90's. They also said that the woman had 300,000 of insured jewelry that they were planning on collecting on top of everything else. The boyfriend bragged about using it to get some fancy car. It is just sick.

I guess that the woman had tried to sell the house for a couple years, then failed at short sale too this summer.

I can only hope the neighbours were asleep and went fast. I haven't read anything more on it...but I'd rather not know I was going to go.

I really hope I never reach the point in my life where blowing up my house sounds like a good idea.

People are so friggin stupid! And seriously, if you're going to do something THAT dumb, do it so it doesn't hurt anyone else.
