    The perp, Kevin Coleman
    This looks to be another drug induced killing. According to a clerk at the hotel, it appeared he was "on drugs".

    This is so sad. The woman is a friend of a friend. Absolutely senseless! My thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones of both victims.

    From the article posted above:

    Hawkins said they called 911 earlier in the day because Coleman threatened them, but deputies did not arrest Coleman.

    In a statement, Capt. James Pogue with the sheriff's office said, "Three seasoned officers responded to the initial disturbance and there was no probably cause to make an arrest."


    BBM-This makes me very angry!! The hotel tried to do the right thing to protect their employees and guests from this violent man making threats and there was no arrest?!?!? No probable cause??? He had a GUN!!! Did they not search this man's person, his room, his car??? They had a complaint from hotel management-plenty of PC to do a search. There is also indication that the man was high on drugs at the time-did they not search for drugs? Why not arrest him for public intoxication and making threats? Finding the gun and/or the drugs would have had him arrested and removed from the hotel.

    Two innocent people who did nothing other than show up for work that day are now dead because the police decided it wasn't worth their time, IMO.

    This is nuts!!! While I do not know the entire story, I do know that 2 families are shattered by this.
