Did you know someone who was murdered?

My stepdaughter's best friend was. She had been to our home numerous times.

    Yes, I do. In a drive-by.

    Yes. A childhood friend and her sister were stabbed to death by their own father. This post was edited by Lady Ondine at October 12, 2020 9:00 AM MDT

    A boy I grew up with came home from Vietnam addicted to heroin.  He was killed in a drug buy that went bad.

    Quite a few actually over the years and fair number of suicides as well.

    Many---but fortunately no one that I knew personally....I enjoy various crime shows because they demonstrate the logical steps required to come to the correct conclusions that reflect the reality that exists.

    Opinions have the appropriate weight on such shows---welcomed, but discarded when wrong or disproven. This post was edited by tom jackson at October 12, 2020 7:14 PM MDT

     About twenty years ago, our neighbors from across the street, a retired US Navy submariner and his wife, had their adult daughter and their son-in-law move in with them for economic/financial reasons. The son-in-law began attending college, some of his classes were at night. One evening as he was leaving the campus to go home, he was in the parking lot and was shot dead as he unlocked his car door. The killer or killers were never caught.

    Rest assured, they will surely be held accountable for their deeds (either in this or in the after) life.

  • Years ago I had a friend I talked quite regularly with online who was killed by her husband that completely snapped.  Killed her and then killed himself right in front of their daughter.

    Sadly yes.  The mother of a friend in HS was died under murky circumstance. The Cops attributed her death to "Foul Play"  She was found in 2 feet of water off a boat dock with marks of a struggle on her body. That said it could have been an accident - she was part of a Swingers Group that was heavily into BDSM, and she had been drinking heavily
