When people lose loved ones they become crazy with grief.They say and do crazy stuff.On the bright side the Taylors wont be in need of a house for awhile.
CCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky.— It was not just the rain Javen Bell noticed Monday. It was the yellow tape that hung around his neighbor's home. Again.
The Sheriff's Department said they would disclose more information as it became available.
"It's making me sick all over again," Bell said.
The home at 7400 Ogden Landing Road is where investigators say CaSondra Evrard was murdered in December 2010.
On Monday, they announced they believe it might be the site of more foul play.
Bell's family called 911 early Sunday, shortly before 1 a.m. Just a stone's throw from the Taylor home, he said he was close enough to smell the smoke and see the flames.
"It was coming out over the kitchen, the middle window," he said, gesturing toward the mobile home.
Detective Tim Reed with the McCracken County Sheriff's Department confirmed the fire did start in the kitchen area, an area where, according to investigators, parts of the crime were committed.
If someone was trying to destroy evidence, Reed said they were too late.
"We've been in that house several times. There isn't much left to destroy."
But, when he arrived at the home with the State Fire Marshall Monday afternoon, he said he was keeping an open mind.
"This could be somebody that was mad at the Taylors. We just don't know at this time."
But he did know something was not adding up. The electricity, he said, had been turned off for four months.
This time, the possibility of a second crime behind closed doors has more than just investigators concerned.
"I'm worried something else is gonna happen," Bell said.
Since the murder, seven people have been arrested. Mark and Jamie Taylor and their daughter Jasmine were the first to be taken into custody. Then, Mark's sister, Denise Marshall was picked up on a kidnapping charge. Her daughters Brandi and Destini, as well as Brandi's boyfriend, are also in custody.
Investigators are not saying whether they have questioned those defendants, or anyone else for that matter, in relation to the fire.
Len Ogden, representing Jamie Taylor, said Taylor was shocked to learn the news when he visited her in jail Sunday morning. But, he said, she was relieved to hear the Sheriff's Department was fully investigating it.
