Failed Insurance Scam Destroys 80 Neighboring Homes

This Nov. 11, 2012, aerial photo shows two homes that were leveled and the neighboring homes that were damaged by a massive explosion that killed two people in Indianapolis.

Wall Street Journal reports on failed insurance scam:

This week an Indiana judge sentenced a woman to 50 years in prison for her role in a failed insurance scam. The scam not only completely destroyed the perpetrators’ home, but also killed two neighbors and damaged 80 other nearby homes.

Investigators likened the damage to that of a tornado. The photos from the attached Wall Street Journal article show the destruction. Thirty nearby homes had to be razed due to damage. The incident took place in an otherwise quiet Indianapolis subdivision.

The plot was supposed to net a relatively paltry sum of $300,000.00 in comparison to the widespread damage.
