The surviving family members still need financial help from the community to bury their deceased loved ones. A GoFundMe campaign has been created for the Diol family.

    $14K seems an awfully low reward for a crime this heinous. I’ve seen much higher dollar amounts for some GoFundMe idiots, like the one wanting a new puppy to replace the one he left in a hot car.

    Doubthathe cowards meanto harm anyone. They must feel horrible for whathey did.
    Someone knows them. Gethese criminals prosecuted.

    Why did the occupants not escape outhe back of the house?

    We have an escape plan from every part of our house.
    Closing the door can be an effective barrier to fire and smoke.
    That gives you enough time to call the fire departmento rescue you.
    If necessary, break through the drywall to a room unaffected by fire and smoke.

    We check our smoke alarms regularly. No excuse to not have working smoke alarms today.

    Well if the picture is accurate, I’d say you can find that guy in the front at Camp Crystal Lake.
