A distant relative of my mother—an elderly woman, living alone, whose husband died two years ago and whose only son died nine years ago—was brutally murdered in her Victorian home in Southern Virginia last evening around 9:00 p.m.
The photo above, with police cars and crime-scene yellow tape visible, was taken this morning.
Why would anyone choose to kill a harmless, kind, gentle 84-year-old woman?
I am shaken.
