This is just so sad. Suicide of any type is sad and when it involves another victim it is more than just sad but very hard to understand.

I hope we hear more about what happened here because it sounds as if this could have been anyone's neighbor or friend.

So Makarios is the murderer. Why such a focus on a murderer, painting a portrait of her supposed brilliance and humor and accomplishments, rather than the victim? It's unseemly.

I wonder how many people were SHOCKED that it wasn't GANG related ?...but, instead.. SHOCKED that the victims were Anglo-Saxon's instead ?
ZERO Homicides since 11/27/16 ?....just to show you that it's not only gang banger's that kill.... don't be SHOCKED people.
