Many questions remain for Holly Seiler’s family

LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WIVB) — Lockport police are remaining very tight-lipped regarding an investigation into a house fire.   Holly Seiler, 54, was found dead inside her home at 605 E. High Street on Thursday morning.

“She was a loving mother,” said Caleb Bell, Seiler’s ex-husband. “She did all she could do. It’s just a bad situation.”

A situation Seiler’s family still has many questions about.  Just hours before the house fire, police were at Seiler’s home responding to an altercation between the 54-year-old and her live-in boyfriend, Bell tell us.

“The police said they were handling it and they were working on that until all of this came about,” said the victim’s former husband.

This meaning the fire. That call came into dispatch just after 3:30 Thursday morning. We asked Lockport Fire if the incident appears suspicious, they couldn’t say but did add that they handed over their investigation to police because, by law, they must do so if they find anything legal violations.

“I’m putting my trust in the Lockport police to get all the facts together and at the end of the day we will see,” said Bell. “I’m hoping to get to the bottom of this for the kids sake.”
