Daniel's Inferno

Arsonist Says Devil Made Him Do it

The Brooklyn man responsible for a fire that killed five neighbors last week told reporters that he was under Satan's spell. "It must have been the devil that possessed me to do it, it couldn't have been Jesus Christ," Daniel Ignacio said from Bellevue Hospital's prison ward. Ignacio told the New York Daily News that he is still tormented by the smoke and flames. "Now I close my eyes and I hear screaming," Ignacio said. He has been charged with five counts of murder and one count of arson.
