Title: "Arson, Fraud & Crime - Stories from 38 years of Arson Investigation"

Description:  Arson, a crime itself, is often used to hide criminal activity such as murder, theft, and fraud.  An arson investigation is more than finding the cause and origin of a fire, but how, why, and who is involved in its occurrence.  When arson occurs, most of the time, the arsonist has deeper motives.  Dean Hensley has investigated and referred for prosecution thousands of arson investigations and has a treasure trove of experience to share regarding murders, jealous family members and lovers, people trying to rid themselves of financial burdens like vehicles and homes, and many other experiences.

  He holds multiple fire certifications with Texas Commission on Fire Protection, International Association of Arson Investigators, National Association of Fire Investigators and the State Fireman’s and Fire Marshal’s Association.  He graduated #3 in the class at the Sam Houston State-Fire Executive Management Training-Law Enforcement Management Institute.

He also is a member of the Texas Association of Special Investigators (TASIU) Houston chapter where he serves on the Board as Sergeant at Arms, and works with local insurance carriers and the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) agents on fraud.
