Title: Another Tragedy
Post by: Sir Martin on October 25, 2020, 08:20:41 AM
Dang ... as if 2020 wasn't already bad enough.  People are reporting that there has been a murder this morning in the TRF campgrounds.  I absolutely do not like to spread rumors, but several people who are camping there have reported that someone was killed and a suspect is in custody.  The last thing I saw was that the investigation is ongoing and there is not much more info.  As far as I know, there has only been one other tragedy such as this in TRF history.   :'(

I sure hope so, Trill.   There seems to be a lot of people who are saying the police are questioning all campers in the vicinity now, so it looks serious.  Also, a fellow got on one of the TRF FB pages and said that is was his sister who was attacked.   So sad that anything of this nature can happen in an environment where we have all shared good times and fellowship.
