I know it is a sad thing to happen.
I was was waiting till I got independent confirmation on it. I can not print info from the news papers ect.. with out confirming it with the State Police. it would be irresponsible of me to do so. I was waiting till later today to call them. I wonted to let them do there investigation first and give them a bit of time.
