Seven churches burned. Two weeks without a suspect. One city known for racial tension.
"Yeah, we recognized a pattern a week ago. Like I said, it's starting to disturb a lot of people," St. Louis Fire Chief Dennis Jenkerson said.
There's at least one arsonist on the loose in St. Louis, setting fire to churches. Each fire started at the front door of church property in the middle of the night, and six of the seven churches scorched have predominantly black congregations.
