Hot Tip

Investigators at an arson scene in Titusville, Fla, found a clue as to who the arsonist might be: a latex glove, with a fingertip inside. The criminal had apparently gotten his finger caught in a door on his way out, and left it behind when he fled. Officers stopped at a local hospital and sure enough, found Ismael Ortiz, 24, being treated for a missing fingertip. He quickly confessed, and police now want to find the man who hired him for the insurance scam. (JW/Orlando Sentinel) ...Investigators ask that anyone with information to please call their tip line.
