    The Sanford Herald updated their article about the murders. They have arrested two men and charged one of them with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of kidnapping, and one count of robbery. And no, it is not in a horrible part of town.

    I'm not sure I would call it random speculation. If you are familiar with the Sanford area, you would know that the school is located in a not so great part of town, for starters. But the things that need to be said are "Lord please be with the families of these two individuals and the family of the alleged suspect." I pray that this is a quickly solved case and that the families recieve some closure.

    I love how random speculation starts immediately. Death, you already DEFINITELY know they were dead before the fire started. By all means, let the professionals know. They need all the help they can get from the inch-high private eye sector.

    Yep sounds like someone killed and then tried to cover it up.

    Car in a parking lot, burning with two people inside. They definitely were dead/unconscious before the fire started. Even if they were severely handicapped, they could have gotten part of the way out.

    My first thought was homicide. Unless the car was involved in a wreck to where they could not exit the vehicle on their own.

    Must have been something obvious in the charred wreckage if they are already treating it as a homicide. Forensics these days are remarkable and I would not be surprised if the case gets solved quickly.
