Parked and walked around the corner surprised to see this the other day. Car gutted and burnt to a crisp. Everything and anything of value removed. The local chatter has been that it more than likely a try at some good and fast insurance money. Cry that your car got stolen and set on fire. Another burnt "stolen" car on Ave 52 about thirty minutes later.
Hard times lead to hard living.
A little later out on another untouched hill I noticed another burn that looked suspiciously like a car fire. Guess it is that time of year. Wonder how many my-car-was-stolen-and-set-fire insurance claims work?
