Two weeks after arson on Knifley Road, case still very active
Original Story posted on 2016-11-25 09:03:23: Arson investigators on scene at Knifley fire
Information on this or any other arson should be reported using the KSP Arson Hotline at 800-272-7766
By Ed Waggener
KSP Det. Alec Wesley, reached by phone yesterday, Thursday, December 8, 2016, said that while there are no new developments to announce at this time, the arson investigation into the fire at Adair County High School Principal Troy Young's home is still very active and still headed by the Kentucky State Police.
He expressed confidence that his investigation will eventually lead to the crime being solved. "It may be hours, days, or even months," he said, and noted that several investigators are working the case.
Det. Wesley said that Kentucky State Police are asking anyone with any information on this case or any other suspected arson to call the KSP Arson Hotline at 800-272-7766.
The information on who will remain in charge of the investigation was requested because, locally, there has been speculation that 1) The investigation would be expanded asking the FBI to come in because of the possibility or likelihood that the crime was terroristic in nature, or 2) That the Kentucky State Police might request that the investigation be handed over to local law enforcement as the lead investigator.
Det. Wesley said that neither is the case, that the investigation remains primarily in the Kentucky State Police jurisdiction.
