East Cleveland Police have taken a 50-year-old man into custody for his role in Sunday's fatal home explosion in the 1000 block of E 125th St.
Christopher Glenn was located by Cleveland Police on Tuesday evening while attempting to sell a hot water tank to an elderly female on E. 113th Street.
In a press conference Tuesday, Commander Scott Gardner told reporters two people were attempting to strip metal off the vacated home on the 1000 block of E 125th St. During the process, so much natural gas built up inside the home that it blew up, killing a still unidentified woman and critically injuring 51-year-old Craig Martin Kelly. The latter has a history of breaking and entering, Channel 3 has learned.
Authorities had believed that at least two other people were involved in the operation, with the alleged driver of one of a van going to the scrap yard currently in custody. Glenn was seen at the home, but had been missing until Tuesday.
Five additional homes were left uninhabitable by the blast, and another is still being evaluated. Organizations like the Red Cross have offered help to those who have been displaced.
