  1. Now this is confusing. The original report (sketchy that it was) said two, now we have four.

    How many more are are they looking for?

  2. Cindy – not confusing.

    As a case is worked more info arises and encompasses more.

    Not rocket science.

  3. Sara? You are an idiot. The original report stated two. Your comment is totally uncalled for with the rocket science remark. Why do so many of you idiots like to play “gotcha”? You are not good at it. Leave off the snarky remarks.

  4. Sara, the original story said that the investigation was ongoing and implied there might be more arrests coming.
