Confused in Denton

United States

#1 Jan 23, 2008
My main concern is I just moved to the Denton area from Baltimore Md about 3 weeks ago with my 2 young children and in those 3 weeks there has been 2 boys and now this 15 yr old girl who have been truck and killed by a vehichle.I think I made the wrong choice to move here.My heart and prayers go out to all of the families who have lost their child.My family and I will be praying for you.And for goodness sake turn on your lights and slow down driving these roads.Having a license is a privilege it's not something that is owed to you.

i was there,
im sorry to say the girl walked into a line of traffic, stopping infront of one car (which missed her) and then stopped infront of the SUV that hit her. as far as the speed IT WAS ON 404 the driver was going the correct speed limit and had the lights on, it seems to have been a suicide attempt, she had recently attempted it more than once from what i understand from the police department.

What purpose did it serve for the writer of the newspaper article to cite that Kathleen Clancy had had a disagreement with a family member and had been sent to her room? Don't you think that the family feels bad enough without making the newspaper making it sound like Kathleen's being sent to her room was an abusive act that would force a young girl to feel that she had to flee? I know the person who sent her to her room, and he is a wonderful, loving person who absolutely adored that child and most likely had good cause to send the child to her room and probably did it in a calm manner. The writer's comments were uncalled for and didn't serve any purpose except to prove that the newspaper is a "gossip rag." An apology should be written in the newspaper to the family.

Please do not be discouraged on your move here. This can happen anywhere and they were all accidents. It is easy to want to blame others and it is so very hard to grasp the thought we have lost some very young people but let's find comfort in the fact they are in a better place now and must have been needed to be called home. As far as the reporters adding unneccesary info , I agree. The heartache these parents are feeling is probably horrendous. Who are you to judge a parent on thier parenting skill without even knowing the entire situation. Ahh...but we must remember that is a reporters job.. to dig up as much dirt to make thier story readable ...My heart and prayers go out to all those who have a loss and to Confused ,please give our county another chance . We are good people with hometown values and we hope you learn to love it like we do. It is nothing like across the bridge......

I am related to Katie Clancy. Katie was on her way to her favorite place, the shelter she worked at. She had clothes with her, and a key to get into the shelter. Suicidal? I don't think so! She was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Instead of throwing around rumors and gossip, say a prayer for her and her family.
Katie will be missed

Please, Katie Clancy was one of the most happy-go-lucky people I have seen in years. I knew her from visiting the shelter and thru those I know that work there too. She never struck me as suidal. I've seen suicidal. She was so sweet and very proud of her family.
If you know the roads out there, there is no SAFE place to cross 404. What do you expect, cars going over 40 MPH, no street lights and no traffic lights.
As for the local police/sherriff departments, this is the 3rd time I have received misinformation from them. I think some officers speak a little faster than they have info.

Katie Clancy was one of my best friends and was NOT sucidal, she was a happy, bubbly, kind person. She was always smiling and talking about how much she loved working in the shelter. I believe she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Please say a prayer for her family.
