One quite day in Norfolk, Virginia a woman took it upon herself to let the citizens know what was going on in their neighborhood. Self proclaimed reporter, Rhoda Young, went live on Facebook and solved an arson case before the fire department could even put the fire out.
Donald William Stricker III was arrested for allegedly setting his home on fire. He lived in the home with his and three children. Neighbors said they were a nice and quite family. No one knows why he set fire to the home and thankfully no one was hurt.
Unfortunately while looking for information on this case no one mentioned Rhoda Young but we do hope the Fire Marshall said thank you because she did make his job easier.
