Remember last week when we reported about the string of seven fires set in the doorways of primarily black churches in St. Louis?
We posited that the fires could have something to do with the Black Lives Matter movement which had exhorted its followers to “confront the Black Church with the truths they often do not acknowledge” and stating “we have decided to bring our burdens to your front door.”
I guess someone took them up on the challenge.
The St. Louis Post—Dispatch reports that “David Lopez Jackson, 35, was charged Friday afternoon with setting two in a string of seven church fires this month, but authorities say they don’t know the motive.
The charges, two counts of second-degree arson, list his address as in the 200 block of Presley Road in the Glasgow Village area of unincorporated St. Louis County. He was being held in lieu of $75,000 bail, according to court documents.
Forensic evidence linked him to the fire on Oct. 18 at Ebenezer Lutheran Church, 1011 Theobald Street; and video of his car near New Life Missionary Baptist Church, 4569 Plover Avenue, links him to the fire there on Oct. 17, police Chief Sam Dotson said. Both churches are in the city.
A container of gasoline and a Thermos bottle that smelled of gasoline were found in his car, Dotson said.
