    ROSE TOWNSHIP, Mich. - Ally Brueger was jogging Saturday afternoon along a gravel road in Oakland County when she was shot and killed.

    Neighbors in the tight-knit community of Holly Township describe Brueger as a young woman with a passion for life. She died doing something she loved.

    "Oh my gosh, this girl was a religious runner," said Thais Peck, a family friend.

    Brueger, 31, ran the same 10-mile route each day. Neighbors said they usually saw her jogging with headphones on. She was focused on the run.

    "She just minded her own business. She had her blinders on, and she would run every day, never missing a day," said Peck...

    Thank you!
     
  8. I wonder why "medical" costs also if someone is murdered and dead?

    Ally was in critical condition upon arrival at hospital. Emergency medical transport and ER expenses as efforts were made to save her.
     
  11. Oh, I remember. A little bit confused, it seems (because of all the cases).

    I have been looking at murders on trails/joggers and I have not yet found one that was by someone known to the victim. So if this killer was someone known to Ally as police believe, it seems it is unusual.

    I am focusing on potential Perps who are *not* known to the victim. The last thread speculated on Perps that the victim knew. None of the speculated Perps resonated with me, and I am continuing to look at other possibilities. In particular, businesses along, or immediately off of Fish Lake. Lots to review there....

    Fish Lake Road is strictly rural, dirt road. Doubt there are "businesses" there.

    Good point. Now that I think about it most of the jogger cases that come to my mind involve strangers as the killers.

    They are difficult to find. Here's one case (the murder of Cynthia Langrall) where the victim was shot and killed while jogging by someone she knew.

    Man who killed jogger plotted to harm victim's husband

    Well, by that logic, it lets her father off too. Why the big push to blame him?

    LE are saying it appears to be someone known to her. We don't know the reason. So everyone known to her is suspect. I
    don't see it as blaming therefore. It doesn't stop us speculatimg on a random shooter.

    Monstrous Acts

    I wasn't able to load the link by liltexans so found another link. There doesn't seem to be a WS thread.

    This also highlights a possible motive of revenge against the parents of Ally, as some posters have mentioned - by killing their only daughter.
