Sad news in our Town this week

We have had sad news in our Town this week.  A 16 year boy was murdered in a wooded area near our home.  He was in the same school year as my daughter who had known him since he was five.  No one seems to know what happened other than that his body was found at 7pm on Thursday evening and it would appear that he had his throat cut.  My daughter and her pals are all devasted and the kids have all been leaving, cards, flowers and balloons at the edge of the woods.  He was a quiet, popular boy who didnt seem to have any enemies.  What a world we live in these days.


  1. Oh my goodness, how awful. My sympathies go to the boys family and also to all his frinds. It must be hard at that age to deal with something like that.

  2. What a terrible thing to happen - so sad at such a tragic loss for the family and awful for your daughter and all the boy's friends. It is so hard to be the parent of teenagers as you want them to be free to go out and explore the world, yet you can't get away from the real dangers out there.

  3. I heard this on the news, it's so so sad.
