    Student murdered very close to where I live UPDATE-- suspect to enter Not Guilty plea

    If you live in the Chicago area you might have seen this on the news. This happened about 2 miles from where I live. They think the girl came home from school and surprised a burglar. Over the past several months there have been a number of robberies in this part of our village because it is single family homes, heavily wooded yards, and backs up to the tollway, making for a quick getaway. But IHP is kind of like "Mayberry" in that tragedies like this don't happen in our village. Just very sad. If you would please say a prayer or think a good thought for this family.

    Thank you,
    Elyse

    How sad, we will say a prayer both for her family, and for the community. I hope they are able to catch the person or people who did this.

    I'm so sorry. What a horrible thing to happen to such a young innocent person just coming home. I hope the perpetrator is caught soon.

    Prayers for her family and all who love her, and prayers for your community too.

    Ah, the poor little girl.
    They need a return of capitol punishment for offenders who do this sort of thing. These creeps have to be taught to leave the kids alone.

    Wow, how tragic. My thoughts are with the family, all the kids at the school and the community. I can't even imagine......
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!
