    The girl did not live at the apartment. A family friend, who lived two doors away from the apartment, said Porter was staying with a family friend when she was killed.


    Porter had been living in Alabama for the past year but had returned to Columbus for a family member's funeral.

    I have looked on myspace and all the ones I have found are private due to her age.

    Somebody stabbed a teenage girl to death at a home in Columbus and Friday the girl's neighbors said they're very concerned and hope police make an arrest soon.
    Police say the young victim, 14-year-old Chelsea Porter, grew up Columbus but had been living out of state for the past year.


    Investigators received a 911 call to come to the apartment just after 3:00 a.m. Once inside, police found the 14-year-old dead.
    The coroner ruled the cause of death as a stabbing. The young victim, 14-year-old Chelsea Porter, suffered multiple stab wounds. She'd been spending the night with a family friend.
    Police say the apartment did not appear broken into and they don t believe the teen's death was a random act of violence but still no suspects.

    Where were the parents of the friend, where was the friend?

    There was a 911 call that alerted police to the scene. They are not releasing that 911 call, however, say that the call did come from outside the apartment.

    I wonder who called?

    I wonder if the apartment owner's ex-husband mistook Chelsea (Chel-see, or Ches-lee?) for his ex-wife?

    It does seem strange that she had been gone for a year and just returned for a relative's funeral and then she ends up murdered. If she let someone in it sounds like she knew them or maybe she just opened the door when they knocked and they pushed their way in. I wonder why she was there alone.
    Seems like it would be had to mistake one person for another unless it was pitch dark in the apartment. Wonder if someone had it in for her before she moved and then they heard that she was in town and where she was staying?
    How would they know that she would be alone though. I guess if she thought that the person was a friend that person could have called her and then gone over. Hope they catch whoever it is right away.

    Okay so I have always hated living here. This state only cares about politics and nothing else. Me I am not a political person. Our Crime rate is the highest it has been and we are like 6 murders away from toppling last years rates. Now granted this crime isnt in my city, it is in my state and it is a horrible crime. But nothing is being reported of it. What is top news is A man was shot for breaking up a pit bull fight with another dog. No yes that is a bad story but in any other city wouldnt get first spot on news. Here it is top news because our mayor is hell bent on banning pit bulls. Sorry end rant

    Now this is the only freakin new news I could find today.

    Family members said Chelsea was staying with in the apartment building a family friend to help prepare for a birthday party when she was killed.
    "They heard a commotion, went down and found her on the floor," said the girl's grandmother, Cecilia Means.

    ETA good photo of her here... This is so sd she was 14 years old..

    Indy Gal, yes it is a shame what happens in our state. The city you live in has so many things going for it that attract new business. Besides the Colts, Pacers, and Indy track, it would be great if the Governor would concentrate on being the toughest state on fighting crime. Extra taxes charged to support the sports venues could be better spent (JMHO). Columbus use to be known for being the home of some of the wealthiest people, now they are getting a different reputation. I put more blame on the Governor than the mayor of Indy, but I am not local to Indianapolis so could very well be wrong...
    Some people try to turn back their odometers.
    Not me! I want people to know why I look this way.
    I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

    Don't hold hate in your heart, it takes up too much room
