A four wheeler Outlander Bombardier owned by Adair County High School Principal Troy Young was destroyed in a fire early this morning, and the incident is being investigated as a possible act of arson.

Kentucky State Police Detective Alex Wesley, Constable Jason Rector, and Adair County Sheriff's Deputy Brandon Hitch are on the scene, approximately 4 miles out Knifley Road on KY 551 in the Egypt community of Adair County.


The Youngs learned of the fire set when a lady knocked on their door, and when they went outside, they found graffiti on the side of Principal Young's 2010 Toyota Tacoma which said "4N-4Ag". The four wheeler and a trailer used to haul the 4x4 were destroyed by fire.

Investigators think the fire was set between 3amCT and 5amCT this morning. The Adair County Fire Department was on the scene briefly, and left when the fire was safely out.

Details are still coming in, and we'll be updating later today.

ACHS Principal Troy Young by truck vandalized with graffiti

Adair County High School Principal Troy Young was checking messages as arson investigators were completing their initial evidence search this Friday morning, November 25, 2016. The vandal or vandals had sprayed "4N-4Ag" on the side of the 2010 Toyota Tacoma. One interpretation of the graffitti was that it meant "Four school board members IN Four for AG," a possible reference to the outcome of the recent school board election. Mr. Young and his wife Donna were awakened by a knock on the door by a person informing them of a fire which was destroying a 4x4 which was on a trailer behind the Tacoma.
