It's a Sad Day...

This story has been in the news for a few weeks now in Virginia. I don't know if it's been discussed outside of this area. But the story came to an end today with not the outcome everyone had hoped or prayed for.

Please keep the friends and family of Taylor Behl in your prayers. I can't imagine losing someone you love in such a tragic and cruel manner and unfortunately it happens all to often.

Such a sad story... I almost cried when I heard it was her this morning. I really hope it turns out to be her icky 'boyfriend', because at least we all know he's behind bars for good.

What a sad world we live in. That poor girl didn't deserve to leave this world that way. I hope they catch who did it and put them to death. I will say a prayer for the poor family that is left with all this grief.

there was a story on dateline about her on Friday. I hadn't heard much about it before your post on here but it was really sad to watch it on TV this weekend.

I can't believe she is from Vienna and the coffee place she used to work at - i know EXACTLY where it is and drive by it ALL the time. Such a pretty girl with a kick ass life ahead. Seems like this kinda thing is happening alot lately.

Are women getting too trusting or are men getting more creepy??? hmmmm...

Bethers- The guy who is their main suspect is in custody on unrelated charges for child pornography. Nice, huh? What is wrong with people?

K- Yeah, hopefully they can keep him in jail.

Mia- Yep, I'm all for letting him fry. I can't imagine losing a loved one in this way. It's bad enough to lose someone suddenly, but then to have it be at the hands of some lunatic and in a senseless act of violence. I don't know how you ever overcome something like that.

E- I missed that story. I think it's a combination of both. I think the statistic is that 1 in 3 or 4 women is a victim of a sex crime. And of those 80% if not more are committed by an acquaintance. I think as women we get gut instincts about people often, but are just too hesitant to act on them. Or we chalk it up to paranoia or think we're being silly or don't listen to our inner voice because we don't want to hurt someone's feelings. Forget that! I've learned to listen to my gut and there's been times I've walked out of an elevator and waited for the next or let one pass by because I just got a strange vibe about someone who was in it. Better to feel silly than to end up in harm's way.
