Sources confirm the suspect in the church arsons is Holden Matthews, 21. He is the son of a St. Landry Parish Deputy.

St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz tells KATC that, despite rumors, Matthews’ father did not turn his son in to deputies.

Matthews was booked at around 5:30 this evening into the St. Landry Parish jail.

He looks like an atheist neckbeard, but I honestly don’t think there’s enough information about why this happened.

NO. If he is guilty is what matters. There is never an excuse to persecute a church.

That’s usually a sure sign it’s NOT a conservative republican... because it would be in the headline if he was.

Suspect charged in La. black church burnings
http://www.bpnews.net/52722/suspect-charged-in-la-black-church-burnings

ST. LANDRY PARISH, La. (BP) — A 21-year-old white man is charged with arson
in fires that destroyed three black Baptist churches in St. Landry Parish.
Investigators reportedly haven’t determined whether the fires were racially motivated.

Holden Matthews, the son of a St. Landry Parish sheriff’s deputy, was arrested
late yesterday afternoon (April 10) and charged with three counts of arson.
No motive has been determined, but investigators are considering Matthews’
membership in a band that plays “black metal” music, a genre that has promoted
church burnings in other countries.

“This was an attack on the house of God,” Louisiana State Fire Marshal H.
“Butch” Browning said in a 10 a.m. press conference today (April 11).
“Though the Spirit is still strong, the landmark has been destroyed. We
took that very seriously in this investigation.”
