    What happened to “no immediate indication” of how she died? Cops don’t consider stab wounds or pools of blood to be an “immediate indication”? The whole information chain here is completely screwed up, and it is Fox17’s obligation to fix it.

      Fox prolly reported only the info that wad given to them, what do you do post a bunch of bitching about news stories involving how the police handle things. In last story you cried how they assumed possable foul play. Questioned why the warrant. Now that it is indeed foul play your crying that fox did not bless your sad baby crying self all the info then and now your foot taste real good. So sick of the babies like yourself. Grow up

        John, I am sorry if you read my asking legitimate journalism questions in a serious manner as “bitching” (grown-ups call it “complaining”, by the way). Perhaps if you were to finish school and spend some time in the real world you would be able to tell the difference between complaint and inquiry, but given your barely adequate literacy skills I am not going to hold my breath waiting for that to happen. Nor am I going to wait for you to reach the point of maturity where you see the importance of insisting upon credible journalism. I realize that you think of yourself as a “grown up”, but I am not the one resorting to name-calling here so you will have to excuse me if I don’t give your comment any more credence than I give Fox’s efforts at journalism.

          Lol that’s great. I love it. You bitched when this story 1st came out. Then it was about police stepping over the line. Getting a warrent for the house How police assumed foul play and no wounder they have bad community relations. You just looked for something to bitch about the police. Now your here bitching about fox and you did not get all the info about the stabbing. Prolly a reason police did not want that info out yet? Hmm as for my typing ya its from a phone and i think my point gets across so im not to worried about the structure of anything i thumb on here. I really dont give a rats ass what you might think. After everything gojng on in the world your just another loser looking for any way to bash the police. You prolly bitched about the great job they did with dulton im sure. Eh but ok.

          • john

            That ok. In the 1st story he attacked how the police were handling this case. Thats all i cared about. Sick of that crap. You dont see that part here. If your ok with that then i guess all is right with the world.

  • Dude

    How about you take this ridiculous whatever, elsewhere. This poor woman’s family could read this. I assume your petty nonsense is not what they’d like to see.

      Agreed. I did read Andrew’s comment in the other thread, and given the information as it was presented in the article I thought his comments there, as well as here, were not bitchy and are appropriate criticisms and questions for the forum that this is. Whether his comments are seen as petty depends on your view of the function of the news media in society I suppose, but it is at least debatable. John’s comments are simply infantile reactions to something he saw that he didn’t like and contribute nothing to anyone but himself. There is no call for responses like that in this forum, and I think it is right to at least let him know that such comments are not going to be warmly welcomed here. This is not Mlive or reddit, after all.

        Hate to break it to you, but Mlive IS reddit. Both owned by Advance Publications, sleazy holding company if ever there was one. There is a reason the mentality is what it is at both sites.

  • JEFF!!

    I hate to change the subject when this is obviously a pretty intense conversation, but I have to ask:
    Am I the only one who read the headline and wondered why someone would stab a dead woman’s driveway?

    • Jason

      The Twp. was abbreviated, and driveway was not capitalized, indicating a new sentence. So no. The driveway was not stabbed.
