I live about 1/8 mile away from where this happened. My front door was unlocked and I was sleeping alone in my house. It could have been me. I and all of my female neighbors are stunned and shocked and looking into alarm systems, dowels to block our sliders and bigger bolts for our front doors. If you can't be safe in Poughquag, NY - where can you be? No where. I hear little about the man's race other than in this blog where someone claims that he is black. DNA evidence may not yield anything for weeks - until then who is safe out there?

Clearly - this is the worst crime in this town in years
