    In Response to Michelle I’m truly sorry for your family’s loss and I know that nothing will ever take the pain away. With that being said I have read this article and several other articles on this situation, I know yall are hurt but there is nothing that tammy has wrote that is disrespectful or inappropriate she does an amazing job of keeping the public informed without being insensitive to the family. Please don’t direct your anger In this situation on her or our law enforcement both are doing their job to the best of their ability. As for the information that has been released to the public and privately to the family their is definitely more information being released to immediate family than to the public. Please direct your anger at the suspect

    I am related to the family of the “unidentified woman “. I just want to share with you….you have released more information than the police would even release to the family. Please think about this when you write articles. How you feel if the “unidentified woman ” was your daughter or sister and you had not been informed yet but all the information is being posted.
    Please thing of families when you release information.
    Have a good day
