Yesterday morning there were helicopters flying over our area station keeping. There was a double homicide about a mile away. I watched the news. They named the person of interest and my jaw dropped. The person was someone who I watched grow up from middle school through high school on my couch. He was a good friend of my daughter. She liked him, a lot.
Now he is accused of a double murder. Of his girlfriend and her mother. I am so sorry for the family of the victims, for his family who have to deal with this knowledge, and for his son. I am sorry that he thought this was the only way to solve his problem.
Today I am sitting here and wondering why.
