KOIN TV Highlights Successful PF&R Arson Investigation

A recent in-depth story by KOIN TV detailed how PF&R's Rick McGraw, Fabian Jackson and Lila the Arson Dog tracked down evidence that  55-year-old Daniel Surratt set fire to his ex-girlfriend's home.
On Feb. 14, Surratt was convicted on several counts, including first-degree arson, attempted felony strangulation, first-degree burglary and first-degree criminal mischief. He was sentenced to eight years in prison.
"When you walk into one of these houses, it's devastated, everything is gone," McGraw said in the interview. "(Arson) is a violent crime and people do get hurt."
