Twin Falls man murdered

Most Sunday nights for six years, I would turn on the ten o'clock news on our one local channel, dreading to hear whether anyone had been killed in my county that weekend. Murder is not just a big assault-and-battery; to a little p.d. office, it can hit like a hurricane. I'm six months gone from there, and I can still feel the anxiety.

It's happened again.

It turns out that I've have professional dealings with both the victim and the accused. My regards go out to Marilyn and Brody and the rest of my old office who are about to sail into this storm.
