Edward Offord: "Hey Columbus, I set two houses on fire tonight and shot my girlfriend in the back of the head."
Edward Offord: "I know the police and fire are already on the scene there. My house, also, I put a bunch of explosives and stuff on the stove and I set it on fire, so.."
911 Dispatcher: "You set your own house on fire?"

911 Dispatcher: "At your house?"
Edward Offord: "Yeah".
911 Dispatcher: "But you did this somewhere else?
