I am utterly shocked and very sad as one of most known and recognisable crime journalists was murdered, earlier this afternoon, very close to his house.
Here is an article in english https://www.reuters.com/a...nmen-police-idUSKBN2BW1PP

Wow. Somebody really didnít want him looking at something. RIP.
Hey!
I didn't answer earlier, I was waiting in case we would learn something more.
He seemingly didn't have any "dangerous" case, lately he was participated in a tv show like Oprah, so to speak, focusing on general social issues, no politics, not gangs, not super prominent/famous people involved and he covered murders, yes, but nothing too "dangerous" for him. It's not discussed in the media, but some people say that he was deeply involved - with whom or what, I don't know.
I'm still schocked, really. I didn't know him personaly and still can't believe it. I cannot imagine how his family feels.

Being a crime journalist is probably a dangerous occupation these days - sort of like being a political opinion columnist.

Of course, it's the nature of this job.

As you all know, Juliet de Verona is away in her first year pre-med. I was up last month for Easter. While we were there, she asks if her new friend can come to lunch with us. Sure, no problem. At lunch her friend dropped in conversation that she had been diagnosed as a sociopath. When we were alone again, I had a conversation with Juliet about how she tends to pick up 'wounded birds' as friends and tends to immediately become neck deep with them. Maybe with this kid go a little slower? No Mom, one in 25 is a sociopath, it will be fine. Well, I got a phone call from her last night that the friend had a psychotic break and attacked Juliet, attempting to strangle her over the weekend. Thank god I sent her to MMA for 12 years. She was able to break the strangle hold and subdue the 'friend'. The kid (who claims no memory of the attack) was dismissed from the school for academic reasons this week, and is gone. But I told Juliet that she absolutely MUST report it to the police. I said, look, you happened to be a blackbelt, and were able to subdue her. What happens when the next person she attacks cant defend themselves, and ends up dead? I was ready to get in the car last night and drive to VA where that kid lives, with a shovel and a tarp in the back of my car.

That blackbelt was worth every single penny. It's the only reason I can sleep at night with her away at school.

That is terrifying DoV Shocked Glad your daughter is ok and those years in MMA were worth every penny! And I totally agree that she needs to report it. As you said, Juliet was strong to get away but what if the next person isn't and something tragic happens?

Juleit sounds like a kind girl, but she needs to act now. For her and for others. What an horrible situation to be  No

Oh, Dov! It gives me the shudders just to read this. I am so glad Juliet had the strength and training to protect herself, and yes, yes, yes, she must report this.   Hug

Oh my gosh! Glad your daughter is physically ok but what a scare. Hope she's ok emotionally too. That's awesome she did MMA for so many years.

Unbelievable!  I join everyone in being glad Juliet is okay.

Well, hopefully if Psycho gets the help she needs she’ll stop attacking people, because next time she might just get shot by a policeman. You did her a favor by insisting on a report.

This is absolutely terrofying! The fear of every parent!
Thank God your girl knew how to defend herself.
Of course she has to report it. The incident should be officially documented for various reasons.
Apologies in advance, if you feel I cross limits, but you mentioned about your daughter "tends to pick up 'wounded birds' as friends and tends to immediately become neck deep with them". I understand this is a habbit and now it seems it may put her in physical danger. She may needs to discuss this with a therapist. Even if there's no physical danger with other people, if this is a repeated behaviour, may put other loads in your daughter's shoulders - loads that are not hers to carry. Just a thought of mine and, again, apologies if I cross limits because I understand this is a very personal matter.

OMG! Daughter Verona def needs to report it. As you said, she may attack someone who doesn't know martial arts or another form of self defense. At least there will be a record on file with law enforcement.

Good Grief DoV!

Juliet must report this attack to the police. I sincerely doubt her "friend" has no memory of the attack.

Moreover something like this should never be swept under the rug, if said friend gets away with this now, this may embolden her to do something much worse.

Yikes! My kids quit tae kwon do at the greenbelt. What an awful and scary incident. So weird the friend admitted she's a sociopath. Odd altogether.

You've clearly raised an incredible daughter!  Intelligent, compassionate, tough!  I'm sorry you're having to see her go through this and I pray she takes your advice and files a police report.  I'm sorry her tender-hearted innocence had to learn the hard way that sometimes you can't fix everyone.
