The article focuses on the arrest of a 16-year-old girl in Manchaca, Texas in connection with the June 6, 2006 arson of Saint John's Presbyterian Church, which was believed by authorities to involve six more individuals. The suspects include five people over the age of 17 and two juveniles, who played a prank that caused $50,000 worth of damage to the church. Travis County Deputy Fire Marshal Hershel Lee pointed out the launch of the film "The Omen," as a possible inspiration for the prank.
