House for sale was rigged to explode

Explosive Device Found In Vacant MA House

Investigators in Milton, Massachusetts recently discovered an explosive device inside a vacant house that was meant to detonate when someone flipped a light switch.

Police were first notified of it after the homeowner and an electrician conducted an inspection and saw something suspicious.

Boston police bomb specialists were sent to the scene and they located the device. It took hours for them to disable it and deem the home safe.

According to the homeowner, Lindell Williams, the device was located in a bedroom closet and reportedly, it was connected to other rooms. Law enforcement officials were sent to the same residence last week regarding a vandalism report after concrete was discovered in the drains.

The former renters moved out days after that incident. An investigation has been launched to determine who is responsible for setting up the explosive device.

Anyone who was able to get inside the home in recent days is considered a person of interest in the case. At this stage of the probe, the motive for the act is unclear.
