The resident told Oxford police his father threatened him before being taken to Butler County Jail for a domestic violence incident on July 4.

The father had written a threat on a pair of pants that he would burn the son’s trailer down, according to a police report.

Since then, the son said he has heard noises under the mobile home during the night. At first he thought the noises were due to animals, but he said he found two places where the home’s aluminum skirting had been moved and imprints in the dirt that looked like someone had been crawling underneath it, according to the report
