"Another One"...I hope you go to HELL you insensitve prick! Come live in my famiy's world and tell us to our faces you don't feel sorry for us and this tragedy that we are trying to grasp. Raven was a beautiful, young, intelligent lady who had an amazing life ahead of her. You are absolutely pathetic and I hope to GOD you did not procreate because if you did...I DO FEEL SORRY FOR YOUR KIDS to have a parent like you! I wish a tragedy on you and your family you ****. For anyome else that feels the need to be ignorant and hurtful, say it in your house or to a friend, NOT where my family can read it for God's sake..........
Ok, I understand you are going through a tradgedy right now but I seriously had to read it twice when I seen you hoped a tradgedy on someone else, anyone that has to go through something like this and lose a loved one knows how it feels and never wishes the same thing on someone else, God help you too

I feel this is a terrible tragedy and sincerely my thoughts go out to family members, friends, and others who knew this person. I do understand how losing a close loved one can be, especially when alcohol is in question, I myself have been there. So I say this w/ this with great respect; I think to "ban drinking" and attempt to change the drinking ages is a foolish and a waste of time. This questionable incident already involves a person drinking under age, and even more, you ban alcohol and younger adults will simply find something else, even worse, it would likely be illegal and not distributed following health laws and FDA regulations. I feel we have enough “drug” type of substances the US cannot monitor and control, banning alcohol would just add to that mess! As well, with alcohol sales noting how much is distributed in the US, it has be noted that millions of people DO drink responsibly and abide by the laws! The responsibility falls on many parties involved, and unfortunately the young woman who was drinking too (if she was indeed drinking). Just like any other bad habit, young adults and teenagers will find ways around the "stops". It is very unfortunate things like this have to happen in order to get persons attention. My hope is students see how making such decisions can be a life terminating one. Do not get me wrong, Im not saying others are not should not be responsible, I hope, and Im sure they will, they go after those involved with distributing to an under age person. These laws are in place for what are obvious reasons. To the family I hope and pray you will make it through this tragedy.

The only idiot is you my friend. You are a very cruel person to ever write something like this on a discussion about another human being losing their life. You are a terrible person.

Being hit by a train and being killed by a train are not the same thing...

Well, we all have to die at some point in our lives.

Sometimes I wish someone would slit my throat.

"Raven was a beautiful, young, intelligent lady who had an amazing life ahead of her."
Huh. Apparently not intelligent enough to stay away from the RR tracks.
When will we hear more

Why has there not been more information about Raven? I do not believe at all that she went up to the railroad tracks. The Ames police department received a call about a male carrying a female, headed north on Hyland in the area of Ross Rd. About an hour later is when her roommate called and reported her missing.
That sure sounds highly suspicious. One possibility is she was passed out drunk, he took her up near the rr tracks so they would be hidden by the trees and tried to rape her, she came too and tried to run away and into the train; he pushed her into the train; she was already dead and he made it look like she got hit by the train.
There is absolutely no reason, I don't care how drunk you are, to claw your way up to the rr tracks. She was cold and tired and wanted to go home. So instead of walking straight east on 13th street to her apartment on a safe sidewalk, she climbs up the hill, through bushes and trees; it's raining wet and cold; to get home. No. I don't believe it.
