Investigators: Jarvis Remains A Suspect In Lenoir County Fire

According to law enforcement and a search warrant in the Beaufort County arsons, the suspect arrested and charged in several of the fires remains a suspect in a Lenoir County fire from 2010.

It was last January of last year when a home in La Grange in Lenoir County burned down. No one was ever charged with setting the fire.

The Lenoir County Sheriff's Office says Todd Jarvis of Bath was a suspect in the fire at the time, but says there was not enough evidence at the time to charge him. Major Chris Hill says the case remains open and that Jarvis remains a suspect.

The owner of that home, Jerry Smith, says he is still searching for justice. "Any time anybody comes in and takes anything of yours then you're violated-but I also realize that it's a burden for the authorities to be able to prove a case."
