ATF Offers $10,000 Reward in Arson, Homicide

    SACRAMENTO, Calif., Feb. 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ - The Bureau of
 Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) issued a $10,000 reward for
 the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the
 arson fire that claimed the life of four-year-old Amariana Crenshaw at a
 residence located at 3474 Sweet Pea Way, Calif.
     The Sacramento Fire Department responded to the Sacramento residence at
 approximately 3:38 a.m., on Friday, Jan. 11, 2008, where upon entry they

 uncles, and aunts of young children, the loss of her life impacts all of
