    FWIW, IMO we could use this! Frequently used abbrv. in this case.

    I can usually follow the abbreviations pretty well, but have never figured out a couple of them. Thought it would be nice to post some of the well-used jargon for any newer posters who might have questions... and hopefully find out what some others mean myself! Please feel free to add any I missed!

    LE = law enforcement
    SW = search warrant
    JMHO = just my humble opinion
    JMO = just my opinion
    MO = my opinion
    IMO = in my opinion
    TOD = time of death
    COD = cause of death
    AR = autopsy report
    ME = medical examiner
    IIRC = if I remember correctly
    FWIW = for what it's worth
    ETA = edited to add
    HT = Harris Teeter
    LTF = Lifetime Fitness
    K&B = Kurtz & Blum
    NC = Nancy Cooper
    BC = Brad Cooper
    JA = Jessica Adam
    DD = Diana Duncan
    HP = Hannah Pritchard
    CM = Clea Morwick
    SH = Scott Heider
    HHM = Heather Heider Metour
    JLY = Jason Lynn Young, husband and alleged murderer of Michelle Young, Raleigh
    JY = J.A. Young, Sr. Detective, Cary Police Dept.

    ETA can also be Edited to Add -

    I don't know about htis board but I know at some other boards I visit there is a thread that lists all the abbreviatios and their meanings. There may be one here too. I'll have a look around and see if I can find anything gor you

    oh and some posters use JLY for Jason Young so as not to confuse him with J. Young the detective on Nancy's case.
    FYI - If I make a typo I call it a Brain Fart. Till you go thru brain surgery you really can't appreciate that saying.
    As always my posts are just my opinion...

    oh good ones, Jilly. Peppurr's is sooo cute. MyDaughter adopted a one eyed torti (Lola) not long ago and she's a real sweetie. I thought of you and your sweetie when I first saw Lola.

    JY = J. Young, attorney
    Pssst. Jmflu,

    That should be J.A. Young, Sr. Detective, Cary Police Dept.

    "JLY = Jason Young" should be "JLY = Jason L. Young, husband and alleged murderer of Michelle Young, Raleigh"

    Also, "SH = Scott Hider" is spelled Heider.

    Should probably add:

    HHM = Heather Heider Metour (no hyphen)

    HP = Hannah Pritchard
    CM = Clea Morwick


    thanks!
