    Of course there was a reward for this, even his mother would turn him in for $$ in these times!

      I'm pretty sure his mother would turn him in regardless.

    Glad they caught that guy. Until then, it was just a ghoulish, low rez, apparition
    on the fuzzy cam. For this unknown woman, I hope justice is served with a
    red hot branding iron in the eyeballs.

      Yeah, sometimes I think sitting in a cell living off taxpayers' money is too good a life for some criminals. Too bad we can't (openly) torture anymore, because there are a some cases where the subject in person undoubtedly deserves it. :-/

    I think all u jokesters out there are sick in the head to be making light of this terrible crime. What would u say if the victim were ur sister, mom or girlfriend? Has hollywood violence desensitized u that much?!

      Went to hit "reply" and say I agree with you 100%, but accidentally hit "report abuse." So, CNN, it was a mistake.

    Bad story? poor journalism? Don't you think they'd want to notify the general public asap if an arrest was made? So maybe they don't have any details, what do you want them to do, make stuff up? Yeah, it's a link, they had to put something there, maybe they put what they know.....lighten up Francis.

      That was EXACTLY what the police said int he statement. Noting more nothing less. Perhaps you would like them to make up some facts so you can practice your comprehension skills? Maybe your favorite news agency posted 2-3 paragraphs just to tell you they made and arrest?

    How do we know we are Americans? Oh right... we're complaining about the poor journalism despite the fact that this article is to inform us someone is dead.. And someone sick is out there capable of doing this. Get your heads on straight.
