An interesting development in the case of Mr. Benjamin Gilmore. First off, if you don't believe he did it, please join the Facebook account supporting him, http://www.facebook.com/beekeeperjustice.
At first I thought he did, due to the sign he held at one of the Coloradoan photo shoots. But then other things came to light that caused me to change my mind:
Then we come to the idea that is bothering me. Insurance companies don't pay on arson claims unless there is a suspect in custody. Think folks... A man, happily married, with a thriving business just up and decides one day to become an arsonist and burn down a building under construction. How likely is the scenario? Is this the normal modus operandi of an arsonist?
Here's another idea. Is anybody interested in the business property of Mr. and Mrs. Gilmore? Has there been any offers to buy up the lot prior to this arson? So my question to you, people of Fort Collins is:
Did Benjamin Gilmore really do this crime, or is this a massive case of "Jewish Lightning", to the tune of $10,000,000?
