Alaska State Troopers in Ketchikan are offering new details in the Dec. 31 arson investigation in which a trooper left a woman at her ex-boyfriend’s home. The woman is accused of intentionally setting fire to the property a few hours later. Initially, Alaska State Troopers wrote in a court filing that Kami D. Riley had used Trooper Joey Beaudoin’s cellphone to leave a voicemail for her ex-boyfriend threatening to burn his house down. But Trooper Lt. John Brown said that isn’t what happened at all. “And so a mistake was made, and so we’ve written a new affidavit to fix that,” Brown said. The second statement filed Thursday said the threatening voicemail actually came from another number. There was a call from the trooper’s cellphone, but that was when the trooper tried to contact the owner of the North Tongass Highway property which was Riley’s listed address.
