I didn't know Miss Kimberly, this is a sad story to read about. Thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends and all involved at the scene.

They are out there for many excellent reasons. Many are sex offenders that have been kicked out by their own families since they can't be trusted around the kids anymore. Many are violent criminals that are wanted by the police in their home towns. But they all know that if they come to Char-latte-liberal-ville they can stand on Freebridge or the downtown mall with a cardboard sign and guilt stricken liberals will throw money at them.

These criminal drifters are great examples of why it takes law enforcement so long to catch serial killers and others that roam constantly to keep out of the clutches of the law---they are enabled and empowered by the money of the clueless.

Its not hard to outsmart a train. Just step off the track, this was likely suicide.
This is a segment of welded rail. Go play with your toy trains. Leave the big trains to me.

My heart mourns for this family and her mother.
Kimberly was a sweet young lady. I got the chance to meet her one night and befriended her. She was a kind soul very spirted someone who I will not forget. Her smile was beautiful and she was so vibrant. This is such a tragic loss. She may have needed help and was probably getting it, but it was too big for her to over come. Rest in peace now sweet Kimberly. I did not know you well at all but you left a lasting impression.

She did have a fixed address not an unfixed address as you said. She was not an unknown homeless person.She was well loved by her friends and family and had a home with her mother and will be sorely missed. She was just making silly choices as young people do and wanted to do what she was doing..it was not forced homelessness..believe me. Please retract your statement.

It says she doesn't have a fixed address. That tells alot. Her family or relatives didn't care about her to have a roof over her head! Was she homeless? She was only 18, still a child. How sad.
You are talking like a fool!! My daughter did have a home she chose to be on the streets!! I begged her many times to come home but she refused!! I loved her and still love her with all my heart. Her whole family tried to help her too and loved her!! Get your facts right before you make hurtful accusations!! THank you for adding to my grief!! You are heartless!!

I think it is really sad how people are today! This young girl is gone and she had 2 parents who dearly loved her, along with lots of friends. Kim was a very good friend of my daughters and she had problems, as we ALL do, she just had a tougher time dealing with her's. Have some compassion for this childs parents and save your stupid comments for someone who wants to listen to them. I lost a 16 year old son to a heart attach 7 years ago and to loose a child is probably the most HORRIBLE ting any parent has to deal with. So show this family some rspect PLEASE!!!!!
Thank you LOra!! I love you!! You know the truth these other people do not know the whole story or what they are talking about. They are cruel!! They are making a rough time even rougher by hurting me and my family with their thoughtless remarks.

What a heartless community we live in, apparently. Most of these comments are either sick "jokes" or worse. To me, the girl's death is sad, and the fact that an 18-year old had "no fixed address" is sad, too.
Stop believing all the media says!! My daughter did have a fixed address. It was with me!! She chose to run the streets at time unfortunately and I could not stop her because she was 18. I loved my daugher and still do. She had a beautiful home to live in but chose to live as she does. Her whole family begged her to come home!! THis is the darkest time of my life because I love her so!! I wish she would have listened to me and come home. I wish I could have forced her to come home!!

"How a woman pedestrian was killed by a train?" Hmmmm? Maybe standing on the tracks and coming in direct contact with the train? It is such a perplexing question. We can rule out the train veering off course can't we? No derailments in the area, right? Astonishing.
Have respect!! My beloved daughter is dead!! What is wrong with you that you an be so heartless and cruel!! I love her and all you ca do is insult her!!

Another good question. We should call the railroad police and report this. Someone used to call them on me when I used to ride my minibike on the tracks. Never got caught and never got run over!
You people are cruel and sick to talk that way about my daughter whom I love!!

I do not understand how NBC29 can allow such heartless comments to be made about my daughter and her family. Kimmie was and is a well loved daughter and friend. All her family wanted her to come home and she had more than her fair pick of places to live. She chose to run the streets. I also can not believe that NBC29 listed her as having an unfixed address. She did have a fixed address with her mother who loved her more than any mother could love a daughter. She was my precious princess, Thank you NBC29 and all you people for showing me how heartless the media and people can be. THank you for adding to my grief rather then showing compassion. Because of having Christ in my heart I wish no evil towards you. I hope and pray that you never have to know the pain and anguish that I am going through to never see my baby again. THank you for adding to my grief and tears.

If I did not have a strong faith in God and if I did not know what a wonderful mother I was to that child all your thoughtless and cruel remarks would make me snap or break down. Please allow me some peace in my enormous grief. PLEASE!! If you have any compassion left in my soul.NBC29 I offer you a challenge!! Rather then make it look like my 18 year old daughter is unloved and unknown why not get the truth from me after the funeral!! Just give me some peace during the funeral though because my family and I need time to grieve this tragic loss.

I can see you have none of God in your heart to speak ill of homeless like that when you know none of their stories!!My beloved daughter is dead and you want to insult her!! Thank you ever so much for adding to my grief. You better hope God does not judge you by making you homeless or penniless one day!!
