A homeowner burned his house down and wrote racial slurs throughout it to collect insurance money, officials told KPRC Local 2 Wednesday.

Harris County arson investigators said Samuel White has been charged with first-degree felony arson in connection with fire at a house in the 13900 block of Elm Park Court in October 2005.

Officials said the home was scheduled for foreclosure based on non-payment of taxes, homeowner’s fees and mortgage payments.

Investigators said no hate crime occurred.
