Arson at Youngs' home will be solved, Det. Wesley says
It's now three months since crime committed, and no one yet as stepped forward to collect $1,000 reward. First Story. See: Arson investigators on scene at Knifley fire, when the story of the incident first appeared on CM, with the introduction "Cryptic - or not so cryptic - graffiti spray painted on side of Principal Troy Young's 2010 Toyota Tacoma: "4N - 4Ag." Outlander Bombardier 4 x 4 on trailer behind truck was complete destroyed. Mr. Young and his wife were awakened this morning at around 5amCT by a woman who alerted them to the fire."

Tomorrow, Friday, February 24, 2017, it will be 91 days - 13 weeks- since an arsonist or arsonists committed a terrifying crime at the home of Adair County High School Principal Troy Young and his wife Donna Young.
The incident was significant enough that the Kentucky State Police offered a $1,000 reward to persons or persons who had information leading to the arrest of the perpetrators. As of today, no one has stepped forward to claim the reward, KSP Detective Alex Wesley, said in a telephone interview.
"But," he said, "It will be solved."
He said he doesn't know exactly when the case will be solved and is ready for prosecutors. "It may be in days . . . it may take as long as 10 years," stating that a 2006 arson case was solved in 2016, 10 years after it was committed. The statute of limitations, Det. Wesley said, never runs out on a crime of this level.
Right now, he said, he is awaiting evidence analysis from the KSP crime lab, and expects that report soon.
The case is now being worked as a case of Arson, 2nd, a Class B Felony, which, in itself would mean, on conviction, a minimum of 10 years and a maximum of 20 years. Other charges - such as criminal trespassing, and wanton endangerment, could mean the possibility of severe additional penalties. The wanton endangerment would extend to the danger every firefighter on the scene was subjected to.
He's asking that anyone who might have any knowledge of the crime call 1-800-ARSON.
