Indianapolis news station RTV6 is reporting what I already knew would happen. Monserrate Shirley, her boyfriend Mark Leonard and his brother Robert Leonard, were arrested Friday on numerous charges, including murder and arson for the deadly explosion that demolished 33 homes and killed a couple on November 10th in the quaint Richmond Hill subdivision in Indianapolis. As soon as this story broke, I knew something was fishy. And after I saw Monserrate Shirley’s interview it solidified my assumptions. Shirley could not sell her home and more than likely hired someone to stage a house fire but things went horribly wrong. Do I think she meant to kill innocent people? No, unfortunately they were just collateral damage in a botched insurance claim. Now they could face the death penalty according to what a source told RTV6. Such a sad revelation. Watch the initial interview with Shirley about the explosion after the jump.
