  • Condolences to the family 🕊

  • Maybe it was Zach, seems to be his mo shooting old people, duche bag.

  • Member of the community

    The sheriff’s office is probably looking for a specific person of interest in this case. When will the information identifying the person of interest be released to the public? This was (probably) not a random murder. (nor was it drug related, though maybe the murderer was on drugs) There are people in the community who don’t know the details, and maybe the (alleged) murderer is still in the community. The sheriff’s department needs to do a better job of communicating to the community in a more timely manner. And it can be done without compromising the police investigation.

    • I agree. An armed person that has murdered a good person is at large. Was the victim’s vehicle stolen? Is there any info of what to watch for?
