    AZ - Dome Valley shooting & house explosion, plan to kill or injure sheriff deputies


    The couple whose remains were found at the scene of a home explosion in Dome Valley last month had planned to commit suicide after luring as many sheriff’s deputies as they could to their residence and shooting them, according to the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office.

    The couple had also planned to wait for the Sheriff’s Office Special Response Team (SRT) to arrive and take them out as well by intentionally blowing up the residence as team members entered their home, according to spokesman Capt. Eben Bratcher.

    Bratcher said investigators also found elaborate plans, both in writing and in video, that had been left in a blast-protected area inside the residence and detailed what the couple intended to do. In one of the videos, the Firestones are seen sitting on the balcony of their home, calmly discussing what was about to happen while waiting for deputies to respond.

    “This could have ended up horribly, and we are grateful none of our guys were seriously injured,” Bratcher said. “It was one of those things you wouldn’t have ever expected to happen in Yuma. It is insane. You read about this type of thing in the paper happening somewhere else.”

    Thread: Most interesting classic unsolved murder cases

    This thread currently has over 350 cases with a brief synopsis of each and we are still adding additional cases.

    You can access a spreadsheet that lists the cases in alphabetical order with the page & post number so that you can locate a particular case you may be interested in. It also contains links to any cases that already have a thread on WS.

    Many cases do not have a thread. Please feel free to start one in the appropriate forum if you would like to look into one. Should you start a thread on one of these cases, please let me know so that I can add the link to the spreadsheet.

    Here is the link for the spreadsheet in alphabetical order:
