AUSTIN -- Saturday marks the five-year anniversary of what many consider the biggest unsolved mystery in the state of Texas: The arson at the Governor's Mansion.

Surveillance video from 2008 shows a shadowy figure throwing a Moltov cocktail at the Governor's Mansion, causing it to burst into flames.

The person has still not been found.

In 2011, the Texas Rangers released a sketch of what the arsonist might look like. They also released a picture of a white Jeep Cherokee.

The people inside the Jeep were seen taking pictures of the mansion a few days before it was fire bombed.

The Governor's Mansion has since undergone a $25 million renovation. Up-to-date security systems and cameras have been installed.

The Texas Rangers are still investigating the case and a $50,000 reward is offered for any information leading to an arrest.
