According to a report by DEQ investigator Emily Hoskin, in November Hoskin went to a property on B Street and Ottawa Avenue and “watched  the Henry Moss Company tear down a house and load the debris into dump trucks.”

The reports states Hoskin “then followed the trucks to Keith Kinnamon’s property on West Seminole and watched as the truck dumped the material on the back side of the property by the creek.”
