Stolen car torched at Brook field house: Two bottles of flammable liquid tossed at home..

8-24-2004 Wisconsin:

Brook field - A group of males likely targeting a 20-year-old man lighted a car on fire after driving it up to an attached garage and threw two bottles containing a flammable liquid at the home Monday, police said. One bottle went through the living room window. The other landed on the porch at the home in the 14500 block of Mildale St. about 12:30 p.m., said Deputy Fire Chief Brian Petersen. There was an explosion, but it might have been a tire from the blazing car that blew up, Petersen said.

The home's owner, Todd M. Kiefer (Registered Sex Offender), said his son was sleeping but woke up to the sound of glass breaking. Kiefer's son called the Fire Department, and then he used a garden hose through the broken window to put out the fire inside the home. He was not injured, and the attackers escaped. "This is an attempted homicide," Kiefer said about the incident. Kiefer said he doesn't believe that his family - and especially his son - have enemies.

Kiefer, 48, is a registered sex offender after he was convicted in 1993 of second-degree sexual assault of a child under 16, and he was sentenced to three years in prison. But investigators are 99% sure the elder Kiefer was not the target, said Lt. Jeffrey Schramm. Detectives refused to release the name of Kiefer's son, saying that would impede their investigation, Schramm said. ..more.. : by JACQUELINE SEIBEL
