The witness was a young boy in 1998 on the night before Halloween and was out with a few friends “corning” cars.
“As the night went on we soon got bored and needed a little more excitement,” the witness stated.“I had a m100 firework, which is a very small explosive device. One of my friends came up with the bright idea to throw it in another kid’s mailbox as a prank. We didn't really realize what we were getting ourselves into.”
One of the witnesses’ friends lit the firework and threw it into the mailbox.
