“The Car Bomber, his accomplice and identities are well known – yet no arrests by the Pennsylvania State Police”

On the 20th anniversary of the greatest terrorist attack on American soil in the history of the nation; September 11, 2001 it is a fitting time to revisit the single greatest domestic terrorist attack in the history of Lycoming County.

On August 18, 2020 just days after the publication of A Baseball Story In the Birthplace of Little League Baseball – Part XIX someone decided to fire bomb a vehicle in the driveway of the home of this author.

At just past 4 a.m. that day the family of this author made it out of the house safely.

When the call went out to respond, it was a 2-alarm call of a fully involved vehicle next to a structure.

Four different local fire companies and first responders were dispatched from Loyalsock, Montoursville, South Williamsport and Williamsport.

According to the information obtained by this author, a white accomplice used his vehicle (also identified) to pick-up the car bomber in the early hours of August 18, 2020 and drove into the neighborhood of this author.

The driver and car bomber made several passes of the house, circling the neighborhood preparing for their eventual getaway.

The car bomber then exited the vehicle on a street blocks away with the explosive device in hand.

He then made his way into the driveway of this author where he placed the explosive device under the rear of a vehicle and near the gas tank.

The explosive device then detonated and that sound awoke the four occupants of the adjacent home since it sounded like something hit the house.

When this author looked out the windows he saw flames rising from the vehicle.

By this time, the car bomber was walking back toward the getaway vehicle and driver who was parked on a street just blocks away.

If not for the quick response of the multiple fire departments that responded the potential damages of multiple vehicles, and multiple occupied structures (homes and apartments) could have been catastrophic.

Yet, after the Pennsylvania State Police Fire Marshall deemed it “arson”, there has yet to be a single arrest.

This author believes there is a potential conflict of interest in the case and investigation with an employee in the Montoursville barracks of the Pennsylvania State Police.

The case should be immediately referred out to Pennsylvania State Police Headquarters in Harrisburg for reassignment.

It is believed once the reassignment takes place, multiple arrests will be made – including the financier of the car bombing, the runner, the money courier, the driver and the car bomber.

All of whom would be facing state and potential federal domestic terrorism charges.

There are additional photos and videos that have been obtained which show the car bomber sprinting down a sidewalk after his face was seen by a neighborhood camera and in fear – he took off.

Of course, any of these domestic terrorists are more than welcome to surrender to local authorities.

This author and his family appreciate the efforts of the first responders and fully understand the immense loss of September 11, 2001 and are thankful this car bombing did not turn tragic.

Our thoughts are with those that lost loved ones on this day 20 years ago today as well as those who have lost loved ones in the ongoing war on terrorism.
