Aaack! The cops are outside looking for the murder perp...rwbadley

I walked outside the house to go to work this AM and see some activity going on two doors down. A local TV team hustles up to me and asks what I think about the body lying face down 100 ft from my house.

Smart ass that I am, my comment "sonovabitch deserved it, I'd do it all over again if I had to..." fell on surprised ears


Turns out it's one of the neighbors I've seen around. I don't know him, but one of the other neighbors had grumbled about the situation in 'that house' being not on the up and up... whatever that means.

We have a local looney that lives in the house down and to the back, it really makes you wonder. I'll let ya know if any interesting developments occur...if they have any hookup in the cell...

do you have a gun?DougSloan

Just kidding. These things happen everywhere.

In my sleep burb, we have had one murder and two attempted murders in the last two years. The murder was a love-triangle-I want the insurance money-who cares about the kids-I want to fly off with my creepy boyfriend murder.

Just don't talk to the police without your attorney present. We all firmly believe that you are innocent until proven murderer, you. ;)
Ugh, quite messy...rwbadley

It turns out the guy was probably dealing some sort of drug, he ended up getting stabbed a few times in the house, then went outside for whatever reason maybe trying to get away. He left quite a puddle on the far curb, then I guess made it back over to the other side of the street.

Apparently my son may have drove through some of the blood. When he came home for lunch the cops detained his car, pulled off the tires and checked for samples. I think we'll need to initate a lawsuit for damaging the psyche of our minor. (actually, he seemed ok with the whole thing)

We live in a nice area, and it is a bit of a shock. What can you do eh?

The TV media were hounding all the residents for horrified reactions. I disappointed them I guess, I refused to ham up for the camera. I walked out of my house the first time and the guy came up to me with his 'whatta ya think of the dead guy' routine, I told him I really didn't know- this was the first I'd heard of it and to come back after I'd read the paper and had an opinion... The second time (later in the day) a TV girl asked I said no thanks no comment. I really don't want to play the part of 'Shocked Local' so the folks sitting at home can be glad it's not near their home and -see that Agnes? it's a good thing we don't live there sort of BS.

He was somebody's son, and I know he'll be missed. Bummer.
