Being a Petty fan this has annoyed me since 1987. Article In the book they mention in the article Petty says he has a good idea of who did it but doesn't name him because there isn't enough evidence. Petty has always come off as a decent guy and I'm sure he'd like this solved. If anyone else is interested in this let's discuss. I don't have much to go on except that his house was burned down in a way that was meant to kill him and his family. They know it was started with a can of lighter fluid.
