The most important thing always to look for in any criminal investigation is motive behind the incident. What many in Accomack county are scratching their heads about, is it is hard to figure out the motive in these fires. Is it a social message? A bored individual with nothing better to do? Someone with a financial gain to be had? Or is it someone with a serious sickness that sets them for a thrill?
They must be traveling by vehicle as these fires have been all over Accomack County. They must have ties to the area as many of these abandoned homes are in out of the way locations, and they always occur at night. Virginia State Police need your help, if you have any information please call.
