Follow the money and reasons may surface. Sounds like the investigators are being a little naive.

Thanks for listening...Julia from Alamo

Julia,

The investigators can only go by hard evidence. What you are suggesting is conjecture; and theorizing, while used extensively on television shows to make the story line interesting, can't be used to conclude investigations.

Well GG, it appears you are also somewhat naive.

Time will tell. If it's not money motivated, great...but in today's life situations...I have my doubts. You can have yours and I can have mine...when and if the investigators ever finish the truth will surface.

Thanks for listening...Julia from Alamo

When I heard about the fire the first thing that I thought of was "The owners had it torched." No one knows for sure. But with building down dramatically, business was slow, cash flow down.
