I'm glad they caught him.
I cant even imagine having to bury a 17 year old , what a nightmare that must have been for his family.

Hi, I have no idea who you are (I thought I did when the schools first closed down but my friend looked at me with blank eyes). I just want you to know I like you. I "like" all or most all of your comments.

That's all - I just want you to know I like you since this has become a culture of cruelness

Thought the same thing. Imagine being the relative of this victim and you come here and see comments from people.. congratulating each other for commenting?

I’ll take a moment to instead say thanks to the BPD for not giving up and finding two murder suspects for daytime murders in as many days; thanks to the DAs who will work to prosecute these people; thanks to the witnesses who assisted and thanks to to the First responders who see this stuff on the streets first hand regularly - that just be emotionally, physically and mentally draining.

@adamg Was his mugshot posted here before? He looks awfully familiar.
