As covered in previous stories, the fire last Monday was reported to officials around 8:35 a.m. Morrisville Police arrived on scene with flames showing from a back window.

Police say a woman called headquarters, saying she was the individual in the surveillance images and agreed to be interviewed by police on Friday December 27.

Zimmerman spoke with investigators without an attorney present, court records show.

Zimmerman during the interview, according to court records, admitted to being the woman in the video footage captured, saying she was looking for the person who lived there, alleging she lent them money and wanted the funds paid back.

Police say Zimmerman told them she entered the motor home, didn’t find the person she was looking for, went back to her vehicle, sat for a few minutes then went back into the motor home to “take some s**t or f**k things up” in retribution for not being paid.

Shortly thereafter, the mobile home was engulfed in flames as she leaves smoking a cigarette, as seen on video surveillance.
