Chatham – Yesterday marked 25
years since Chatham
residents woke up to the worst case of arson the village had ever seen.
Fast forward to 2013, and there are still
no arrests or suspects in the case. Several fires were started inside the
school around 1am, so no children were hurt.
Each year serves as a reminder of what a logistical
and financial headache it caused student, parents, and teachers.
Now Randy Allen, who manages security and
safety for the Ball
District says, they have alarm systems no in
place. The school also has cameras which did not exist 25 years ago.
You may think this arson case has gone
cold, but even after 25 years authorities are still asking the public to come
forward. If you have any information call the Sangamon County Crime Stoppers at
Evangelist Franklin Graham prayed on a sidewalk outside the Pentagon Thursday after his invitation to a prayer service inside was withdrawn because of comments that insulted people of other religions. More>>
