  1. Maybe after a short period of time, Doug can find out, the cause of death. Our MAJOR television news sources are pretty good at getting the news as it happens, but are horrible at following up with details. A 29 year old woman was found dead on a front porch, within a mile of my house. I’d like to know ‘The Rest of the Story.’

    • According to the city, there were no signs of foul play, and an actual cause of death could take weeks to determine.

  2. How devastating for her family @ the Christmas season. God bless all of them, and i’ll pray for her soul. Very very sad.
