    Would be nice if your news writer knew how to write a complete story.. instead of this.. good example of why some news writers should be fired.

    Please elucidate Fox. How can you write a story like this and not give an explanation as to how either one of them passed? If it was an accident they were both in, that would be understandable, but if it was something spontaneous on the wife's part, that would be amazing, albeit, bittersweet.

    They want you to watch their news program when it airs, I am sure. I live 700 miles away and would like to know, but that would be too much to ask for.

    The thing is they don't know yet. That is the info they got from Howard County. In fact that was the only info in the Kokomo Tribune last time I looked. My prayers are with their family at this time.

      That's what I was thinking, too, that maybe the cause isn't yet known, or hasn't been released yet. They could've waited until they knew something, though. This rushing to post makes for a lousy story.

    What a half ass way to write a news story, disrespectful to the people in the story, hopefully it was written by an intern.
