The owner of the Village Glen Apartment Complex told TODAY'S TMJ4 he plans to file a claim against one of his tenant’s insurance carrier. Investigators haven’t said who is responsible for Monday’s blast inside the apartment building that killed a 28-year-old man.

That man still hasn’t been identified. 

Investigators discovered home-made bombs inside the same unit where they found the man’s body. Two days after the initial explosion, investigators completed a controlled explosion to get rid of other volatile materials inside.

The building where the body was found is a total loss and will be demolished. But the owner says he plans to rebuild. The owner also told TODAY'S TMJ4 the displaced residents will be getting their security deposits and March rent back to them if they paid it. 

As of Friday, the Red Cross is helping 23 residents who lived in the now damaged building. Other organizations like the Salvation Army is giving out vouchers to help residents pay for their first month's rent when they find a new apartment.

Displaced residents can call the Dodge County Salvation Army’s hotline at 920-887-5348 and leave a message stating you need assistance.
