    I have seen this “with west mi ties” too many times when it has something to do with heinous crimes..
    Why your state always takes pride in this practice of attention mongering is way beyond morbid!
    There is something very wrong with you people!
    Happy I left years ago… Your fascination with wanting to be connected to negative horrible happenings is very odd. Seek help.
