That is such a sad story. I feel so bad for those poor men. Why is it that the bad stuff always happens to those that are already down. My thoughts and prayers go out to those that had to witneses this and to those that have lost their lives trying to stay warm on a cold winter night.

Hi Bd200789! Oh my goodness! That is so sad. I hope and pray that the 5 homeless victims will be identified and be given decent burial. And I do hope that the shelter will be able to rise up again so they can continue in providing help and shelter for the needy. This is really sad and horrible. Take care always. lovelots..faith210
