  1. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say she belong to one of the numerous homeless camps along the river there.

    1. And that makes it okay, right? Homeless people are barely people in the eyes of the right.. Their great buddy Jesus would disagree but this is America so… Obviously, a homeless person or a drug addict deserves death.

    2. Negative…This incredible young woman and I went to high school together. I find it absolutely disgusting that you would make such an outrages accusation about someone you don’t know . This limb you are going out on is completely inaccurate.

      1. I totally agree with you. This was someone that had friends, parents, family. My heart goes out to all of you.
