This is the face of the man accused of setting fire to three African-American churches in Louisiana.
Full story below…
Holden Mathews was arrested in connection with a string of arson attacks at three peaceful black churches over a period of ten days and was taken into custody following an investigation launched by the FBI.
He is the son of a high-ranking police official…Louisiana’s sherriff’s deputy to be exact.
The mayor of Opelousas Julius Alsandor condemned the cowardly attacks before Holden was arrested with this statement…
The relevance and the impact on the people in the surrounding communities and especially the congregation of each of these churches, it’s hurtful and there may be some fear that is being exhibited by those who are a part of the three churches.
Keep it locked on TGJ for more on this developing story.
