Madison County Arson

Iowa State Map with Seal


On the front page of the Wall Street Journal (11/18/03) there is an article about the efforts of the Madison County Sheriff to catch the arsonist burning covered bridges in Madison County. Among other things, he looked up all marriages that took place at any covered bridge and then cross referenced these against divorces. He then interviewed all of the separated couples. So far, he has not found the guilty party(parties).
