Now, here I was expecting Newport News to have the first one. Gloucester has become more and more of a cess pool everyday and I am glad that I no longer live in B.F.E

In agreement with you all here. Things happen and tempers flair. Life in general. Godspeed Gloucester.

VA Weapon Owner: Tragic circumstances occur all over, not just Gloucester. You have a new Sheriff in town that is already making changes for the better. It is unfortunate we can not control the "enviroment "(homes) we live in under duress or unstable minds. Homes can not be monitored and unstable thoughts and minds are a menace to our societies. Condolences to the deceased family members.

I agree that this has nothing to do with the political cluster ----- that has become Gloucester. It is a sad and strange addition to what has become a terrible novel in our area of crime and violence.

I was reading some clips from areas outside the state and in, evil is everywhere. So, it is not just Gloucester. However, you have had some cops,political officials that make Gloucester soured.It is getting hard to realize we don't live in a Triangle Quarter with the crimes.

My prayers to the family.

My suggestion to the local elected officials - submit legislation to ban illegal knifes.

Heck - you can walk into any store and find knifes hanging on the racks - kids can access them no problem.

In many houses parents leave various cutting instruments open and available to children.

Why would anyone need a knife anyway?

It is shaped and designed by evil doers, and yes, a link to cities and counties does reflect the times we live.

Well we are so sorry you feel that way about Gloucester, we are , however not a cess pool as
you put it. How hateful to say someting about
this situation , a person died. Gloucester is not the only place to have this type of tradgedy happen. I heard this last night on the scanner right after it happened and the rescue squad
and the deputies were there "Johnny on the spot"
They are to be commended , and respected and thanked for their quick response and their
dilligent hard work. My heart goes out to the girls family. And we are probably glad you do not
live here anymore. Maybe you are very happy in B.F.N.
Stay safe.
God Bless Gloucester

Careful what you wish for might backfire on you someday , hope not.
If you live in Gloucester help with the situations at hand, if you do not live here, we do not need ugly remarks.
The citizens will rise up and be HEARD very soon believe me.

I live in Gloucester for several years before moving 5 years ago. I saw such small town corruption it was sad-it dampered the good things that were trying to happen there. Yes, there is evil and crime everywhere in our world. It is just quite surprising that the first one was in Gloucester of all places.-this is something that couldnt be covered up and brushed under the proverbial rug. One can only hope that if there were several phone calls about this residence that each and every call was handled appropriatly. God bless her family and all those who cared about her. We can only hope that true justice gets served and not mishandled.

I guess I am not understanding what Steve means when he says..."Gentry said the department "had an ongoing history of calls related to," . If I am reading that right, I can only assume that this woman had called for help several times before? If this was the case, and they were only room-mates, why would she stay there in a violent household? I will be the first to say I don't know this woman, at least by name, so if anyone knows the scoop, could you fill me in? This really concerns me that with all of the publicity by the Laurel Shelter, why it would have to come to this? It's such a tragic situation. This family will be in my prayers.
