LGBT leader Nikki Joly allegedly burnt the house of his own


Police in Jackson, Michigan, initially investigated the August 2017 blaze as a hate crime against Joly, according to The Detroit News. The activist is now charged of arson of his own house and killing his 5 pets. Joly also set up Jackson’s first Pride Centre and Pride parade in 2017. He was named Citizen of the Year by Michigan news site MLive for his efforts to legal protection of the trans community . The fire claimed the lives of two German Shepherds and three cats owned by Joly and his partner Chris, who he has since married. Organizers reportedly hoped to collect donations of $10,000, but with the help of other groups, they ended up raising $58,000 for Joly and his wife. It is unclear what Joly’s motive would be for burning down the house that did not belong to him and was insured. A police report states that Joly was questioned for four hours by a police detective and two FBI agents two weeks after the fire. During this time, he didn’t admit to or deny committing this crime
