    Why the Arson unit? Did he torch her for the insurance money?

      Arson doesnt mean for insurance money. It is dealing with intentionally set fires, for ANY reason. So is that all that you got out of this story? Heartless.

  2. The schmuck who did this will have burns on 100% of his body…in hell.
