Default In-laws Hunting Camp in the U.P. Burned Down From Arson

Just getting the word out...please help us catch these people!!!

My in-laws' hunting cabin in the U.P. near Gould City was burned down by someone a few days ago. It was a sad day yesterday when we found out, so many memories gone. Malicious destruction for no reason. If anyone has any information, please contact the Mackinac County Sheriff Department. $5000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

Beautiful cabin. That sucks, and sorry to hear that happened.

I don't understand why people have to do shit like that.

I have been saying the same thing since yesterday. You want to break in and steal stuff...who cares. You want to find a place in the woods to party and screw around...fine. But don't burn down the place just to be an a$$hole and destroy something someone worked so hard to build. Its not like it was some abandoned shack out in the woods. It was pretty devistating. My FIL pretty much built the place by hand himself, with the execption of a few things.

They stole one of the quads that was stored there and burned up my FIL's Case tractor that was in the garage, too. The whole place is a total loss. The bear mount, the elk mount, and all the deer mounts are burned up too. They are waiting for the rain to subside to sift through the ashes to see if the couple rifles that were in the gun cabinet were burned or stolen as well.

Me too! I have been littering facebook with this and posting it on all the pages for the bars and local businesses in the area. My FIL, MIL, and BIL are all up there now dealing with all this and trying to spread the word whever they go. The Sheriff's Department has also launched an investigation and have a couple leads already. They may just catch these guys. Word spreads quick in the U.P. and everyone knows everyone else's business. Someone knows something and will talk for $5000.

Yep...they had insurance on everything. The first adjuster (for the cabin) has already been there late yesterday. They are waiting on the second one for the quad and the tractor.

Damn man, that blows. Nice looking place, hope justice is served and you come out on the brighter end of it with a shiny new place. Good luck.

Then other than the memories I wouldn't sweat it. They will have a new place soon enough better than the last one

Yeah that and those pesky lingering feelings of insecurity, feeling violated, fear, anger, and sense of injustice.

I think the only logical response is looting and rioting in the UP

Rape. That's the answer. When you find out who did this... you should rape them.

Damn....very sorry to hear. Looked like a great place. Look on the bright side, they can't take the memories made there, and since it was insured you'll end up with a new place for new memories.

Damn that is terrible, Sorry for your loss. I sent a link to this thread to a few friends that live around that area, and told them to keep there ears open.
