Holiday Inn Cold Case: "This Is An Arson Fire."


Reinvestigation of Holiday Inn
Arson Fire To Wrap Up Soon

"Now there's some additional testing that we wanted to do and is currently being done by the ATF off-site that's being done down south where they're doing a series of controlled burns for example, just to eliminate all possible other reasons. But the experts have told us and they're willing to testify in court that this is an arson fire." ~~ Greece Police Chief Todd Baxter.
 
Fire Chief Bud Phillips Still Not Interviewed By Greece Police

The reason: "We have not extended the invitation yet. It's definitely on our list of things to do. But when it comes to investigation techniques and it comes to investigative procedures, you get as much information as possible before you do any other interviews." ~~ Todd Baxter

Hey Scats (and Scats followers) - a friend told me that a certain morning radio show was talking about the Stupidvisor and the MCGOP Chairman being arrested this week. Bud Phillips next? Sounds like the Town of Greece could be imploding. Stay tuned!

To 5:57PM ~~ Can you tell us WHICH radio show? Arrested for doing what?

As much as I would like to believe in Christmas Miracles ... I just don't.

Kimberly and Beck. The FBI Investigation....

if what kim and beck said is true then this would explain why rahn sr is being paroled

SCATS said...

To 9:45PM ~~ I missed the radio show & don't find anything posted online about it. Could you please share with us: how this subject came up, what was said, etc? Thank you.

The Chief making excuses as to why is incompetent keystone cops didn't follow up on every single tip. Hilarious. Priceless.

Anyone know why Dewey Avenue was shut down last night?

Don't you find it odd that GPD contacted the media only after reading your blog about how there were no updates???

Very strange and not a coincidence though I am sure the Chief would like us to believe.

Just like they say they don't read this blog.

SCATS said...

To 9:53AM ~~ Although I do think they read the BLOG, I think it happened the OTHER WAY AROUND ... many in media see my BLOG posts on Facebook. It was a reminder to them to ask for that update, IMHO. In fact, I told one of the people in charge of the the Holiday Inn Truth Fire page that I would post a BLOG attempting to help get the status updated by bringing attention and interest to the topic. What matters more is that the update was made ;)

Rahns parole has nothing to do with Feds. Under the law, he is entitled to paroled after serving a specified term of of his sentence. He constitutes no threat to society. As for those who helped put him there, well, now that's an entirely different story. The should be afraid.very afraid.

Controlled burns!.??? Down south. ATF involved OK let's speculate what is being burned in a controlled burn. Impossible!!
Thereis no way In hell that thecEXPERTS? Could duplicate all the variables that would contribute to a natural occurring spontaneous combustion of chemicals and flammable solvents in that store room where they were stored and was determined by local experts RFD And RPD at the scene to be the origin of the fire The term Smoke and Mirrors is oppropriate for this farce.
I have no doubt that this controlled controlled being the operative word here, burn by whom ever will produce the desired results, VERIFICATION OF THE ORIGINAL DESIGNATION OF ARSON AND MULTIPLE HOMICIDE. By the way,
testify in court!. In order for that to happen, some one must be charged with arson and multiple counts of murder. This will never happen and this case will stay on the shelf Untill Hell freezes over..

To 4:03PM ~~ PLEASE proof read what you write BEFORE you submit it. It will make you sound more intelligent.

Since when do you extend an invitation to a prime suspect in major criminal investigation to come in and be interviewed. I hope Baxter was miss quoted in this regard as he knows better. I hope!! If you have probable cause, you pick him up bring him in and inform him that he is the prime suspect read him his rights at which time he has an opportunity to lawyer up and go from there The very idea that this guy would volunteer to to serve himself up is ludicrous . The only conclusion one can come to is they do not have the evidence to make their case Assinine!!!

SCATS said...

To 10:32AM ~~ I assure you Baxter was NOT "misquoted." He said it right on camera. I thought it an odd choice of words too. Perhaps he was being a bit sarcastic ... understating the importance? I hope!

Chlorine based cleaning products, and ammonia, DO NOT spontaneously combust when combined. The D & C story that suggested this was laughable. Let go back to simple science folks!!!

Cops ask people to voluntarily turn themselves in or come talk to them all the time. It's not uncommon or a misquote

SCATS said...

To 9:37PM ~~ You are correct. But hey, the D&C is not known for fact checking. They will print most anything you tell them ;)

To 9:58PM ~~ That is NOT what this situation sounds like at all. A police chief won't name someone a "person of interest" for the homicide of 10 others then wait for them to "voluntarily" appear for questioning. So far, Baxter hasn't made the request. It will be interesting to see if Phillips shows up with a bunch of lawyers ;)
