Homeowner looking for spark in arson cold case


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A Wilmington homeowner is passing out fliers offering a reward for your help to bring an arsonist to justice.

John Perkinson says on May 24, 2012, someone set fire to his home in the 100 block of Wayne Drive.

He says the investigation may have gone cold, but the flame still burns inside of him to catch the person who torched his home. He's trying to spread the word about the crime by offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.

"I've got fliers that I've put out for Riverfest, and I've put them all around town," Perkinson said. "I've started a Facebook page with a link to the Wilmington Police Department page, so please spread the word because we need to find out who did this."

If you have any information on the fire, call Wilmington Police.
