Ed. Note: I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has donated to the St. Baldrick’s Fundraiser in the fight against Childhood Cancers. Even though I’m an idiot and posted the wrong link yesterday, we’ve gotten halfway to the goal. Thank you so much for your generosity. And if there are others who’d like to make a donation, any amount helps, please do so and get a free PoPville shirt at the head shaving event!
If you have a personal question you’ve been dying to ask me – fire away! You can ask in the comments (which I’ll go back to and pull from) or just send an email with your question to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Ask me Anything” in the title.
Are there any crime stories for which you wish you knew more background information about the victim?
Although I had not worked with her in years, Carolynn Ellis, worked in the front office at my federal agency. We got the email from management that she died suddenly on Monday night (struck and killed by a DUI driver at 10th and U St, NW), but it didn’t take long to figure out what happened. Shared the thread from PoPville with a few folks who liked knowing that the community cares.”
I absolutely wish I knew and could share more about not only the victims but the perpetrators as well. (more…)
