DARBY TWP., Pennsylvania (WPVI) — A man is being charged in connection with a deadly house fire that killed one person early Sunday morning.
The fire broke out just after midnight at the 600 block of Sharon Avenue in Darby Township, Delaware County.
According to court records, Aaron Clark faces a long list of charges including murder.
Police believe Clark did this in retaliation for his girlfriend ending their relationship.
20-year-old Olivia Drasher, who suffered from cerebral palsy, was trapped and couldn’t make it out of the house alive.
According to a GoFundMe page, Drasher’s mother — a Philadelphia police officer — and Drasher’s twin escaped unharmed.
Drasher’s nurse escaped with injuries and her older sister was not home at the time of the fire.
According to sources, investigators believe Drasher’s older sister ended a relationship with Clark and he knew his ex-girlfriend wasn’t home at the time of the fire but knew her two sisters were inside.
And that afternoon, he allegedly threatened his ex-girlfriend, telling her he would post compromising photos of her on social media
The GoFundMe page also states that the victim’s older sister had asked for help from the local police and the Postal Police where she works.
The fire brigade had to leave the house twice because the flames were strong.
More details about the fire will be announced at a press conference on Wednesday.
