What The Hell??? Firefighter Sentenced For Arson Murders!

- By Bossip Staff

Long Island volunteer firefighter, Caleb Lacey — the son of a preacher —is going away for 25 years for starting a fire that murdered a mom and three children. Pop the hood for more.

A volunteer firefighter has been sentenced to 25 years to life for setting a fire that killed a New York mother and three of her children.

Prosecutors say Caleb Lacey wanted to look like a hero by getting to the fire first.

Emotions ran high in the courtroom during Friday’s sentencing hearing. Children who survived the fire were in the audience, crying. The man who lost his wife and children also was there. He had recorded his statement, because he was too distraught to make it in court.

Lacey was convicted of four counts each of murder and manslaughter. He continued to insist Friday that he was not guilty.

The Feb. 19, 2009, fire started in a stairwell leading to apartments in Lawrence, N.Y.

Looks like this guy came from a good family and had a chance to really do something with his life and he’s still going to spend his life behind bars like a common thug.

  • Hannibal

    HE LOOKS LIKE TYGA FROM YOUNG MONEY

  • The Eyes Have it! Murderer!!

    Just because his father was a preacher doesn’t mean his father was a good man or that he came from a good family!

    On the other hand, notice those dead eyes…the light to his soul is gone. Typical eyes of murderers…those dead or darkened eyes.

  • DLADYSTARR

    Don’t believe the hype.
    The kid is innocent.
    Why are people always ready to believe what the MAN says. In court is it always circumstantial evidence the gets you locked up Not real proof. They only had circumstantial. that is all it takes when your black or hispanic. AGAIN, don’t believe the hype. Kid is going to jail and he is innocent. Pray God gives him a break.

    @Marquis de Sade
    Caleb is a Biblical name. It’s more common than you think. Children of the corn were given a number Biblical names.

    He had a need to feel important, be the hero in the spot but his plan failed! There are a lot of sick people who are volunteer firefighters who have done the same thing this twisted thug has. His father probably one of those pentacostal preachers that rip people apart and take their self-esteem to control and manipulate them. I bet this murderer felt feel like he could never measure up or was good enough and need to become an instant hero so his family would finally love him.. Hmmmm…

    Forensic investigators know what to look for and it was easy to see that he was perpetrator. It’s all textbook!

    Mental illness must be addressed in our communities

  • allaboutit

    maybe he didn’t do it. he says he didn’t. god bless the children and the woman who died. god bless casey. if he didn’t do it, may he vindicated.

  • Miss Ann

    That’s it, 25 years? A man sells crack but gets sent to prison for life but a man can murder a woman and her 4 children and gets 25 years. Seriously?
