Texas Lawyer Believes She Was Intended Target in Attempted Firebombing


A divorce lawyer in Hurst, Texas, believes she was the intended target of a would-be firebomber who threw incendiary devices into an office building over the weekend.

Lawyer Ginger Weatherspoon says police found two unexploded devices in her office and at least one other device that caused a small fire in an office next to hers, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. The fire, in the office of Falcon Petroleum Resources, burned itself out.

Weatherspoon told 5NBCDFW.com she’s not the only one who thinks she was targeted. “In this field you do make a lot of enemies,” she said. “Everybody believes I was the target.”

Witherspoon told the Star-Telegram that police are already questioning some people connected to her cases. “I told my staff it’s like being in the Pelican Brief,” she said. “It’s like being in a John Grisham novel.”
