This module uses the Motive, Means, and Opportunity case study to demonstrate how responsibility is determined in an arson case and what evidence may be left behind by the perpetrator. The module defines motive, means, and opportunity and provides guidance on how investigators can establish each of these factors in an incendiary fire. The module also provides information on arson for profit fires where insurance fraud is involved.
