    My heart breaks for her family. We live in such a crazy world that we really have to be overly cautious.

    I dont think he killed him for ‘no’ reason. he might have got ticked off by the fact that after all the expensive gifts he gave and she accepted, she still does not consider ‘worthy’ of her. To me it seems a mean selfish woman was killed by an emotional egoistic guy.

  3. Niton says:

    its very strange 1) two people seeing each other for sometime. 2) One kills other apparently for no reason. 3) The police blames other and even gets an arrest warrant so soon. 4) The suspected killer is all of a sudden missing. 5) All of a sudden the suspect is found dead due to overdose of drugs… All this seems very fishy, no one knows if suspect ever took drugs before or not (as he was an IT professional well educated, his partner was a respected school teacher) and being aware of that so many cops behind him he will go to the drug dealers to get drugs! He may not be the one who killed, may be the killer is still out there free and laughing on police and others after killing two good friends…
