Governor Riley Statement

The following is a statement from the Office of the Governor:

MONTGOMERY – Governor Bob Riley on Tuesday said he will be traveling to the sites of the four churches in West Alabama that were destroyed or damaged by fires. Last Saturday, the Governor visited the sites of all five churches in Bibb County that were attacked by arsonists.

“I want the people of Alabama to know the state is doing everything it possibly can to investigate the church fires in Bibb County and this latest series of fires in West Alabama. Teams of investigators from the FBI, the ATF, the ABI, the State Fire Marshall’s office and local law enforcement have joined together to gather evidence and pursue leads. We know the five fires in Bibb County were arson and our team will not stop working until those who are responsible for these atrocities are brought to justice. We do not know the cause of the fires yet in West Alabama but will pursue all leads and gather all evidence we can,” Governor Riley said.
