JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- Just two days after 61-year-old Cecil Hepler was killed in a fire caused by an arsonist, his sister Susie George is pleading for answers.

"Whoever is out there who did this they deserve to get caught," she said.

JSO tells Action News new clues in the investigation are pointing police to the person who may have started those flames.

"I feel a little better that they have somebody because if not he could keep doing this," said George. "I don't want to see someone else lose their family member or their home."

George says she won't get her brother back, but getting him justice will bring peace to her family who has already lost so much.

"I'm burying my brother now. I didn't ask for this I mean he's not replaceable," she said. "They deserve to get locked up and think about what they did."

George has since been forced to demolish the home where her brother lived.
