You never know when something bad is going to happen. Wednesday morning something bad happened and no one knew it until Wednesday night. One of my mother’s best friends, a lady I have known my entire life, was found murdered in her home on Wednesday evening. Mama’s friend didn’t show up for a lunch date and by the evening people were worried. A couple went to check on her and she was found in a pool of blood in her kitchen. We have learned that two men wearing hooded sweatshirts were seen in her driveway at 5 am. A neighbor saw her car leave at 6 am. These two thugs broke into her house, stabbed her at least 12 times, stole her purse, and stole her car. The car was found last night. The entire community is in shock. This is a rural, peaceful place where violent acts are rare.
My mother is having a very hard time with this. She lives alone. It easily could have been my mother that was attacked. I am scared and she is scared, too.
Let’s hope that the police catch these monsters soon.
How could anyone do something like that to a 73 year old lady? It is so sad and so scary.
