Nebraska Women tried to burn ex's letters

Didn't go all that well.


The next time Ariauna Lillard decides to destroy some love letters from an ex-boyfriend, she will probably opt for a shredder, not a small butane torch.

The 19-year-old Nebraska woman set a fire in her Lincoln apartment Monday afternoon that caused $4000 in damage, according to police.

Investigators say Lillard (seen at right) attempted to torch a small batch of love notes, but when the paper did not appear to catch on fire, she placed the notes on a bedroom carpet and proceeded to take a nap.

What Lillard did not realize was that the letters apparently were smoldering as she dozed off. Her sleep was subsequently disrupted by the sound of a smoke detector going off in the third-floor apartment. Lillard awoke to the bedroom carpet in flames.


There goes the security deposit.
