Looks like all you need is a camera, some personality, and it helps to be in the right place at the right time. When a fire occurred in a Norfolk, Virginia neighborhood, Rhoda Young noticed that the no news crews had arrived yet.
While running errands with her husband they saw huge clouds of smoke and decided to be the first on the scene to report live on Facebook and possibly solve the crime. This hilarious video has gone viral and is being talked about all over social media.
According to the Virginian-Pilot Young said, “I get excited when things are going on. I’m nosy, so I like getting into people’s business and I like people to know what’s going on”.
We’re going live, Young stated with excitement as the house burned in the background. The house fire is in full active duty right now…. The house is fully engorged, Rhonda stated as she went live on Facebook.
Determined to get the story, Rhoda found the homeowner, who was sitting on the lawn of the house across the street. Young approached the alleged homeowner and asked him how did the fire start. Not really wanting to be filmed, the homeowner replied that he didn’t know how the fire started but he was at home. While interviewing the homeowner, Young discovered that his hair was on fire along with his pants. She tried to get camera footage of his hair, but he politely asked her to stop. Letting it be known that she was not a joke, Rhoda was determined to solve the case!
Rhoda comes to the conclusion that the man was actually the one who started the fire, even though he claimed he didn’t know how his house went up in flames. Police officers must have believed he started the fire as well as the homeowner was placed in handcuffs.
The owner of the house was upstairs when the fire started… Doing my investigation, I have now discovered his m****rf*****g hair was on fire, and his pants is burned off his d*mn leg, she says while looking into her phone’s camera. So he was right there when the fire started, and he got a six pack of godd*mn PBR. So now I gotta figure out how he start that fire, Rhonda stated.
As the man is getting arrested, the video ends as the owner of the home allegedly started the fire. The Virginian-Pilot later reported that Donald William Stricker III was charged with arson in the Nov. 27 fire. I did solve the crime before the fire marshal got on the scene, Rhonda says.
