from investigators provides more
details about the case..

It describes how a deputy opened
the trunk of Uhl's car, smelled gas and
saw a cookie tin with five red

have fuses.

Bomb technicians from the
Virginia State Police determined the
devices contained a mixture of
gasoline, oil and styrofoam and
described them as a home made napalm

While one of the devices
apparently contained nails, Uhl told
investigators he was going to set the

Mersa is a common type of

Symptoms of this staph infection
