25 years ago: Man sought for questioning in Perry arson case
From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for July 13, 1990:
In Jefferson County, authorities were waiting to discuss a June 2 arson fire near Perry with a man who was currently out of the area. The county sheriff’s deputy Rick Jones said that a man believed to have information about the fire or to be in a position to get information about it, was currently out of town, and officials did not know when he would return. The fire had destroyed the former Hickory House restaurant, three miles north of Perry on Jefferson County Road 1029. The building had been abandoned and had no gas or electricity connected to it, according to Jefferson County Sheriff Roy Dunnaway. Witnesses had reported seeing at least two men driving away from the building as it burned, but the witnesses were not able to provide specifics about the appearances of the men, Dunnaway said.
