  1. What kind of a world do we live in? This poor women who sounds very likeable could have such a horrible death, just because she was a nice person? I am 47yrs old, I see the world with no caring for a human life. My Daughter lives in this building and I thought this was a good building it worries me. All it takes is a demented person to screw up a name fr an apt building. I thought nothing would ever happen like this she dcomment_ID not deserve to die yet, and I really wish we can bring back Capital Punishment..murderers and child murderers
    as we are paying these people to live in prison…the laws have to be changed to protect the innocent not the guilty…Rest in Peace, u dcomment_ID not deserve to die this way…my heart goes out to her family..Sincerely Mara
