Everyone should be extra vigilant as the man who killed the young woman early this morning (May 31, 2009) in the 1900 block of Newton St. NE is still at-large!
For those who may not know – a young woman was stabbed multiple times at approximately 3:00 am this morning on the 1900 block of Newton St. NE. (on the John Burroughs School field). The assailant escaped through the adjacent alley and has not yet been apprehended by police.
Please spread the word as there has very limited media coverage of this tragic incident that has occurred right here in our community – and the perpetrator is still at large – this means everyone is at risk even as I type this email.
Please get the word out to others so that they may take necessary precaution.
The John Burroughs PTA has been notified and extends its deepest concerns for the loss of this young woman and is willing to help the community in any capacity needed, given this tragic situation.
