Funny thing cause in France we had kinda the same.
Last year there was a building in paris that got on fire, a criminal fire and it happened that there was a brony named Ponyfox in this building. He was fine but 8 people including 2 kids died in this fire. The police suspected a hobo who passed by there with matches and put him in jail. In a year the people who was living in the building didn't have help for relocation, but Ponyfox did.
Last week a news appeared that says the hobo was innocent and it was Ponyfox who put the fire to his own building and killed thoses people. He's now going to have 30 years of jail. Apparently he is mentally ill, he was very violent to one of his neighboor (who had his 2 child killed in the fire) but after the fire ponyfox started to be very kind to him. He put fire to his doormat as well.
What creeps me out is that I knew him personally, went to meet up with him, to conventions, took the train with him, and even went to his new appartment two months ago ?
it's a pretty fucked up story.
