    This was brought to my attention by a dear childhood friend, Melody: her best friend found out that his sister was murdered last Friday. His sister was wheelchair bound due to having spina bifida... it is thought that the robbery may have been the motive. Given her handicap, her ability to fight back was obviously very limited... and Melody informed me that it was her son returning home from school that found his mother deceased, stabbed and with her throat cut. :( She will be laid to rest, tomorrow, and I am reaching out to my fellow WSrs with a request to keep the Slater/Osborne family in your thoughts and prayers...

    Oh, I'm so sorry. WTH is wrong with people? - and I use that term loosely. A thief could easily have overtaken her without hurting her. My guess is it was someone she knew and could easily ID. Hope they find the perp soon.


    RIP Donna.
