Pretty sad, how can people take another man/ woman’s life… hopefully they are not going to get a slap on the wrist… life for a life.

Sad a life has been lost and IF the comments on here are true that he felt he had to break into someone else’s house to get by. Who knows the truth these days? So many assumptions. Two people know the truth and that is the deceased person and the other person who put him there. There will only ever be one side of the story now. Unfortunately killing him doesn’t solve the problem it creates another one in the sense that someone has to live with what they have done if they did it and if he has friends and family they have to deal with the loss. The sad outcome all around. Too many lives are being lost lately Intentionally or unintentionally.
