    Ummm Alex?
    We've known of the death for almost a week now. What we'd like is a little more info on the suspect & evidence. Newsflash » This just in : Making an arrest does not always = having the correct or only guilty party in custody!

    All they have been told is that an arrest has been made. ONGOING investigation is not going to give them any DETAILS. They are simply telling that an arrest has been made. Did you want them to say nothing? Seriously people. Think before you post and make yourself look like an idiot with no ability to carry that simple thought.

    @Paul re: didn’t realize the comments on here were similar to those of a hip hop website makes me want to find another site to get news from
    » Really? Huh it's the articles themselves and LACK of actual news here that makes me want to do the same. Lately the bloggers are far more informative than the 'Journalists' and the 'News articles' here.

    » I live here and I'm all too familiar with stories of not having the correct or only perp in custody, in order for this lame-a$$ excuse for a 'newsflash' to bring me piece of mind.
    » This just in : Election results – SOMEBODY won the election...remember you heard it here first @ CNN
    » Doctor to patient : 'Your test results are in... your diagnosis is... you have some kinda disease!'
    Yea, Thanks for narrowing that down for us!

    CNN how about a little coverage on Jonathon Foster from Houston TX. Amber Alert recently issued. Very odd disappearance indeed.
