  • Sad☹️Condolences

  • Maybe link to the earlier article so people don’t think it is 2 in one day. Thanks!

  • Is there a reason for two nearly identical posts? The second merely expounds on the suspicious nature of the death, so I’m just curious why two separate headlines/posts? Not trying to second guess or anything, just my curiosity at work.

    • Maybe because all the comments were completely off the topic, a young man was killed and left dead on the side of the road, he was just a kid. My heart goes out to the family. It’s tragic and so very sad. As a mother of a teen it shakes my maternal instinct into a bit of a panic

  • So sad. Thank you Kym for a site that
    Is decent and respectful. LOCO has sunk to depths no one should go to. Disgusting. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of this young man. I can’t imagine the heartbreak you are going through.
