    Wow, they print that in the paper before they tell you??

    #154 5 years ago

    Thank you german-pinball for posting an update for us. Very sad situation for all people affected by this.
    A real bummer that you lost so many pinball machines too.

    #155 5 years ago

    I hope they catch whoever’s responsible and bring them to justice, someone could’ve lost their life.

    #156 5 years ago

    Damn shame.

    #157 5 years ago

    So terrible, just now seeing this. So very sorry, Ingo

    #158 5 years ago

    Horrible. I hate seeing this. Good luck to you Op.

    #160 5 years ago

    If it's arson, doesn't that mean someone can be held liable (if found)?

    #161 5 years ago

    A possible suggestion Ingo-
    It might help you to continue to heal and recover if you change the title of the thread. As so many great pinheads have pointed out, your life has not ended. Hang in there brother.

    #162 5 years ago

    What a nightmare. Looking at the pictures saddens me. Feel sorry for you Ingo. Be strong pinball brother!

    What’s the news?

    #166 5 years ago

    Even if they catch the guy who did it, how would he be able to pay back for all the damages?

    #167 5 years ago

    Sorry, my fault .... NO news!!!!

    What ever happened? Did your machines come back to life with repairs? We’re you ever given justice for this arson?

    NO, none of them. Never seen one of the machines again, all allegedly burned down.

    To this day I have not been able to enter the premises. Everything is still locked. You can't see a single part of a pinball machine in all the rubble. As far as I have heard, no perpetrator has been identified.

    #170 3 years ago

    Do you or law enforcement suspect that some or all of the pinball machines were stolen and the fire set to cover up the theft? Is it unusual that you are unable to view the rubble in the presence of law officials to determine if the remains of pinball machines are in the rubble? This seems to be both a sad and questionable situation.
