    So...I'm related to them, and I haven't heard anything about this being suspicious. Also, Kay and Linda have been married since before I was born (so 34+ years).

    The fire does appear to be suspicious though. They are still investigating the cause of a fire started in the bedroom of a couple that happen to have a 24-year age difference. There is nothing wrong with that in itself; however, the story the Sheriff is telling, is based on the word of the only person that lived. I am not saying this woman should being accused of anything. But, the stat's are that when one spouse dies in a suspicious circumstance, the other is always the first suspect. Fire Investigators are very good at what they do. They quickly know the difference between a natural fire (By accident); or suspicious. I would think that by this time they pretty much have a cause of the fire? They have to know if any type of chemicals or something else caught fire. But, they did not release that information? The article fails to mention basic information that could be important. They state the ages of the couple, but not how long they have been married? If they have been married for six months to a year; or, if they have been married for thirty years! It makes a huge difference in the investigation. I don't think I am speculating when I say, it sounds a bit suspicious to me.
