    Suspect had been injured in a police chase in December.

    WAIT! What?!?! Eluded arrest in a previous crime by leaving the hospital after being injured in a POLICE CHASE?? O.M.G. What a tragedy that he was free at this time to commit these murders.

    While the arrest may give some answers to this heinous crime, it does not bring relief to me. I am guessing this poor couple was targeted while out doing errands, and the criminal(s) followed them home to then perpetrate a home invasion to steal valuables and the car. This has happened frequently to folks in my area. The violence in this type of crime varies, but the threat is always there. What happened to this couple could be an example of how tragically it can escalate. Personally, I am feeling very vulnerable to this type of crime, and I am resolving to be more vigilant to my surroundings as I approach my street and driveway as I return home.
