"You're right. I lit the dealership on fire, almost burning myself to death in the process, just so I'd have an excuse to murder my own brother. Then serve a full term in jail, get released, get a third world heart transplant, then write a book, start my own motivational talk shoe, give up my new found fortune, and move to a remote4 diner just so I could burn it down and collect the $65,000 insurance policy. Then get rid of my son and move in with his family who hates me. Nice work detective. You caught me."
