Robin is a simple woman with simple tastes. She likes long walks on the beach, cuddling her favorite towel, and a roaring house fire with people inside.
Robin Hamilton, 57, was arrested shortly after Saturday’s fire behind a Hawthorne trailer home.
A woman told Alachua County deputies that she was renting the shed from Hamilton and living there with her two dogs. The woman said Hamilton had been drunk and threatened to “burn her out” because of a missing towel that had sentimental value to Hamilton.
About 20 minutes after the fight, the tenant said she smelled something burning and then saw smoke. The woman said she got out of the shed, but her puppy fled under the furniture and died in the fire.
Hamilton told detectives she didn’t know how the fire started. A neighbor’s surveillance showed Hamilton crouching next to the shed several times, just before the building caught fire.
The good news is Robin will never be raped in prison, because… YIKES!
