The Key to This Crime

A woman who noticed her keys missing allegedly decided her neighbor had stolen them, so she broke into the neighbor’s house and began trashing it, police say. Amanda Lee McDaniel, 23, of Florence, Ore., then tried to start a fire by spraying lighter fluid on a hot stove, and then called the fire department herself and hid in the bushes outside to watch their arrival. That’s when her boyfriend arrived home to find what was going on. When she told him about the missing keys, he asked if the set hanging from her pants were them, and “she began to cry,” police said. She was charged with burglary and attempted arson. (RC/Eugene Register-Guard) ...The key to her problems is nearly as obvious.
