Autumn Walker, 22, allegedly admitted to igniting the house of her grandfather James Kilfoyle, according to Eustis police. She also intended to torch his vehicle. Elizabeth Price noticed the place across from her was enveloped in smoke when she was standing on her porch. In the 2200 block of Titcomb Street, it occurred on Monday. “I noticed smoke coming from the front. No flames, only a lot of smoke, before the fire began to spread to the back of the home, “stated Price.
“Cory Compton, a neighbor, stated, “I walked out in the road, and it was all in the air. “Everything was on fire as we were walking down there,” Walker admitted to setting her mattress on fire, per the arrest document. She claimed to be sure that her grandfather would put out the fire if he were at home. Walker also said that she prepared to put a burning sock inside Kilfoyle’s SUV’s petrol tank but decided against it. Walker claimed she was angry with Kilfoyle for selling her cars but failing to pay her the proceeds.

“That someone would go to such extremes to garner attention is very unfortunate. I believe that was the problem. That’s sad. All hope is lost for him, “stated Price. For around 30 years, Price has resided across the street from Kilfoyle. She and other locals regarded Walker as a typical youngster whose actions worsened as she grew older.
“He appears to be somewhat exhausted because he has dealt with these problems before while attempting to assist the grandchild, Price added. “She kept getting into situations as she grew older and stayed with her grandfather. Walker allegedly threatened to “murder him”—her grandfather—while being apprehended, according to the report. Walker was arrested for first-degree arson and violence on a police officer and taken to the Lake County Jail. She is being detained right now on a $12,000 bond.
