Arrest Made in Fireman's Death.
While responding to the burning auto body garage on September 30, 2002, a facade on the front of the building collapsed crushing Captain Stott. On November 19, 2002, the first suspect, Byron Layton, was charged with Murder and two counts of Arson Resulting in Bodily Injury for having set the fire. After almost 18 months of continued investigation by the Vigo County Prosecutor, Terre Haute Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives identical charges have been filed against Scott D. Lesko. Authorities arrested Mr. Lesko on the state arrest warrant March 8, 2004 without incident.
