Mysterious fire at house bought with drug money :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Chicago Crime

Mysterious fire at house bought with drug money :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Chicago Crime: "High-ranking Gangster Disciples member John Brown bought the home at 6209 S. Wolcott with cash -- $100, $50 and $20 bills -- that he earned from drug deals, authorities say.
On Jan. 7, a suspicious fire destroyed the home, whose value was estimated at $130,000, said Supervisory Special Agent Todd Reichert of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
'Nothing's been ruled out,' Reichert said of the motive, asking anyone with information to call 888-ATF-TIPS.
In May, Brown was sentenced to 15 years in prison for selling narcotics. His father, Buck Fields -- a drug dealer whom Brown supplied with crack cocaine -- was sentenced Thursday to 27 months in prison.
Before he pleaded guilty, Brown portrayed himself as a home healthcare worker and a businessman who owned a hair salon, Beautiful Imagez. But ATF officials said they didn't have any documentation that Brown earned an income from the salon.
Instead, Brown was a drug dealer with 12 convictions, officials said. During a 2004 arrest by Chicago Police officers, he allegedly was carrying more than $4,700 in his pocket, according to prosecutors."
