Grisly, weird, upsetting...

Yesterday, after we got back from my doctor's appointment, Bunnicula walked to Hyde Park Square. He phoned to tell us that there were police cars EVERYwhere and the entire island park in the middle of the square was cordoned off with yellow tape.

Apparently (as we learned later in the day) a blood-soaked teenager had walked up there from a nearby street, attempted to wash himself off in the fountain, then walked over to the fire department (just on one side of the square) and asked them to call 911, that there had been a killing in his home on a nearby street. He said the victim had been bludgeoned to death with a baseball bat. From what we know at this point, the victim was a high-school senior; and the blood-soaked teenager is the boy's younger brother, who has now been charged with the slaying.

This is a very nice neighbourhood. This is so shocking, as this is NOT the kind of thing that happens here. It's still unbelievable.

Some weird stuff has been happening in Ohio the past couple of days. In my itty bitty town there was a 6 car pile-up, several drive by shootings, and an abduction. Weird, weird stuff.

That's what the police have charged him with. They are going to have to decide if they are going to try him as a juvenile (he's 15 years old) or an adult. Also, the defense has put in a plea of insanity. I wonder if drugs were involved?
