    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...

    Nothing accidental about a tiny female jogger was shot multiple times in the back :stormingmad: I hope the coward who did this is located soon. I doubt he/she would turn him/herself in.

    I first heard about this incident on Sunday when the victim had yet to be identified. This is a local story (Oakland County) where I live.

    According to some media sources, Ally had recently moved back with her parents in Holly, MI. The hospital where she worked is in Novi. That would be a very long commute - probably 90 minutes each way in good weather. Where did she live prior to moving back to Holly and with whom? I wish we'd get more information. Hopefully, LE is looking into these kind of details, but I'd like to know, too.

    Who shot Ally? Police in the US hunt killer of ‘kind, thoughtful, considerate’ nurse

    August 3, 201610:43pm

    ALLY Brueger had a routine. She liked to run 16km a day, down a dirt road called Fish Lake. Last Saturday was her final time. She had her headphones in and may not even have heard her killer approach.

    The 31-year-old’s body was found along the leafy road, bleeding in the grass in front of a home on Saturday. Police in the town of Rose, in the US state of Michigan are stumped.

    Who could have wanted Ms Brueger dead? She was a nurse, an aspiring writer, supposedly loved by everyone, without an enemy in the world.

    The trouble for investigators, is that it is often the way it appears.

    The first sign anything was wrong came in a panicked 911 call from a resident. He heard the shots and went running to see what was going on...

    “The vehicle may have been acting suspicious or traveling at a high rate of speed,” according to a statement from State Police Lt. Mike Shaw...

    This is just terribly sad. Their only child. She can't even be an organ donor because some evil piece of garbage did so much damage. And she apparently loved Boxers. *shakes head* Such a waste.
