10Explosives: 8 deaths in 2012

Via theguardian.com

Yes, there were eight instances of murder being committed by some form of explosion in the U.S. in 2012, perhaps most famously in Indiana where a woman, her boyfriend and her boyfriend's brother conspired to blow up her house via a natural gas explosion in order to collect a large

insurance settlement.  Not only did they blow up their own home, they also blew up five others and damaged a further 90 homes in the neighbourhood, and, most tragically, killed their next door neighbours prompting all three to be charged not only with 33 counts of arson and conspiracy to commit arson, but also with felony murder.
