      When I first signed on and saw this photo I thought I was looking at an ‘update’ of a crime report from last summer. It’s so depressing because it seems never ending. Condolences to the family of the victims.

      So sad this in the Douglass houses right after Just Sam and her incredible achievement. Not that this takes an iota from that. Just awful.
