Man Blames Fires on Arsonist Targeting Neo-Nazi Friend of Robert Stacey McCain, Bill White
Possible arsonists attacking the former house of Bill White, Neo Nazi and acknowledged friend of Robert Stacey McCain.
Three fires in one southwest Roanoke neighborhood over the past month have neighbors on edge.
Some believe imprisoned neo-Nazi leader Bill White may be the common denominator.
Investigators are working the case to find out if a connection is legitimate.
Dallas Powell spends his days buying, rehabbing then renting out properties but has never had as much trouble as he has since he bought this home on Patterson Avenue.
“I knew that he owned it before, but honestly I didn’t think anything would happen,” said Powell.
It is one of many homes that used to be owned by neo-Nazi Bill White, who is serving a stretch in prison for various hate crimes.
In September, arsonists tried to burn the house down to no avail. Three weeks later there was another fire. This time it was upstairs.
Still under investigation, Powell says it can’t be anything else but arson.
