As I said earlier, the tragedy was caused by nothing as nefarious as many here would like it to be. How they did it is still to be determined but it has been a criminal investigation from almost the very beginning.

It's really starting to sound like gas explosion and nothing even more sinister such as a bomb-maker's home.
Edit to add: It would be a heinous crime and shame if this ends up being an insurance collection scam for somebody who couldn't sell their house. I sure hope that doesn't end up to be the case.

WXIN said one of the residents of the neighborhood told them they saw 2 men in the (Moncy's)boyfriend's van leaving the house the day of the blast. They seem to really be focusing on this now.

So, I found this last night and can't help but wonder why it is that no one else has mentioned and/or noticed this. Moncy Shirley (i.e.: R. Monserrate Shirley/Roman) was apparently dating a man named Mark Ray Leonard. A simple google search shows numerous recent arrests. He had been living with her at that house until recently when they moved out as the house was FSBO. However, there are ZERO listings for the home online. Yet, when you see this post about Mark and his buddy Dave Gill, it makes me wonder about the two men seen leaving the house earlier in the day. The fact Dave has been promising the women giving him money that he is getting an insurance settlement in the near future seems to lend further credence to this theory. I will be interested to see if their names appear in the news anytime soon.
