SAN ANTONIO -- In an effort to prove his love for the 15-year-old mother of his child, a 15-year-old boy allegedly used a Molotov cocktail shortly before noon to torch a neighbor's home on the city's northwest side, investigators said.
Heather Tirado said she was still in shock over the loss of her home and her pets, who perished in the fire. Bexar County sheriff's investigators said the 15-year-old destroyed his neighbor's home on the 10600 block of South Shaenridge to prove he wasn't having a relationship with Tirado's 13-year-old daughter, a claim the boy's girlfriend allegedly made.
"She didn't believe him, and to profess his love for her, he broke into my home and did what he did," Tirado said. "It makes me sick to my stomach."
