Vandalism, Arson Investigated At Tulsa Chiropractic Business
TULSA, Oklahoma - A Tulsa business was the site of vandalism including arson early Monday morning, April 24. An arson investigator said someone used an "ignitable liquid" to start a fire inside a midtown chiropractic office.
Someone also spray-painted obscenities on the outside of Peace Chiropractic that appear to be aimed at a specific person.
Police said emergency alarms went off around 5 a.m. at the business complex located at 4134 South Harvard. When crews arrived, they found smoke coming from the chiropractor's office.
The fire was mostly contained to the lobby of one office, News On 6 was told. Messages in red spray paint on several exterior walls of the building appear to be warnings from a spouse suspecting infidelity.
Dr. Robert Peace issued a statement that he, his family and his staff are in complete shock after the attack.
