Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
BPD also posted a death investigation for this. I thought they only posted death investigation details for homicides that are categorized as murders. Seems very odd to me.
Usually just murders, but not always
They also will post stuff about deaths that have gotten media attention, like this one did.
Killing somebody with your motor vehicle while drunk is MURDER.
Walk away with probation. 5 in the can at the most. Probably do it again.
