Comments

In the Crime Scene blog, reference it made to the "controversial incident" outside DC9. It is rather irresponsible of you to be referring to the incident as a "murder", especially after all charges were dropped around the time the M.E. (whose final report is not yet available) said that the deceased appears not to have died from a beating. Things could change with the final M.E. report, but even the police are not calling it a "murder" at this point.
