Fire Marshal Calls
Vehicle Fire Arson?
Kela Hunte said someone set her car on fire and vandalized her home yesterday. The fire marshal said the car fire was a case of arson, according to a new report on the investigation from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.
The report said several concrete blocks were found near the victim’s mailbox, and they were painted the same color as the vandalism on the garage. It also said all of the victim’s personal belongings that would have been in her car were piled up in the corner of the garage.
The report went on to say the victim made a spontaneous utterance to the firefighter on scene, saying “will this get me out of my vehicle lease?”
The Lee County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating what happened in this case. Deputies have not made any arrests.
