(Fond du Lac) Cash bond was set at $75,000 for a Fond du Lac man accused of setting his home on fire last week. Nathaneal Hankerson is facing a felony charge of Arson of a Building as well as Criminal Damage to Property.
The blaze destroyed the kitchen, the rest of the home at 302 North Macy Street was significantly damaged by heat and smoke. When questioned, Hankerson reportedly told a detective he briefly thought “am I doing the right thing.” According to the criminal complaint, the 40-year-old added during questioning “once you go so far, you got to keep going.”
He also allegedly said he was trying to let go of his earthly possessions to earn a shortcut to heaven. A preliminary hearing is scheduled Friday.
