Caught on Tape: Man throws gas on RV, sets it on fire with wife, father-in-law inside

Posted: Updated:
THURSTON COUNTY, WA - "He was gonna kill us that's what he said me and my daughter both," said Ricky Luppino.

Surveillance video shows Ricky Luppino telling his son in-law Joshua Ford to leave a motorhome after a family fight.

Ford can then be seen pulling a 5 gallon gas can out of a van and walking back to the Motorhome and kicking the door shut locking his wife and father in-law inside.

“He started throwing gasoline on the side of the motorhome and I could smell it," said Luppino.

The video shows Ford pouring gas on the RV. He then goes to the front of the rig and sets it on fire.

As a ball of flame erupted into the sky, Ricky Luppino says he couldn't get out the door and had just seconds to get out a small window on the back side of the RV as his son in law shouted.

"He said, ‘I hope you both die,’" said Luppino.

Luppiino whose battling cancer was able to get around the RV and open the door so his daughter could escape.

Joshua Ford now stands accused of attempted murder.
 
Detectives say he has showed no remorse.

“The first responding officers that apprehended him, he told them flat out he was glad he set it on fire," said Ray Brady.

“I have the Lord Jesus Christ on my side and I forgive the guy, but he has to go to jail where he belongs because he's going to do it again," said Luppino.
