  1. Is there an update on the victims? I believe I read somewhere that one of the victims was a Legacy High School student?

    Such a tragedy when you have a common criminal thug making victims of younger people.

    Could have just kept his mouth shut - left the home and carried on with his life. Instead, this monumental parasite thinks it is easier to take the life of one of these youngsters and attempt on the life of the other.
