She would know how to prevent powder burns. And to take off and destroy the clothes she wore, then put on new clothes to go to the store and come home to "find" her mother.

I like the way she is described "a strong voice" -- "often sparred with" -- "an opinionated, often critical voice" -- "spoke very forcefully" -- "was often at odds with officials" -- "a contentious debate"... and nowhere does anyone qualify it with anything like "But she was a good person."

I think we know what that means.

I'd continue to leave my doors unlocked if I lived there. I don't think anyone else is in grave danger besides this lady's dead mother.

It sounds like money was involved. The lady was
probably wealthy living in that upscale community.
Maybe a family member thought she would live to 105
and couldn't wait. Why else would someone shot a
woman that age in the head? It wasn't a robbery.

Reality Check: Crime can occur anytime anywhere, even bedroom communities such as North Haven are not immune from violence.

I was thinking that a family member hired someone. Could be some greedy grandkids.
