The four conspired in mid-June to burn down the company's building at 5414 South 40th Street because of "pending embezzlement charges" against Andonucci, who had just been fired from Young Champions, says a police probable-cause statement. The other three still worked at the company during the incident. The group gathered at a Wal-Mart on June 14, where they bought and stole five-gallon gas cans.

Investigators believe the gas fumes were so intense that Robinson exploded into flame when he tried to ignite the fire. His body was burned beyond recognition.
