My Heart is Heavy

United States
September 23, 2021 8:44pm CST
Yesterday as I listened to a call come over the scanner, I prayed for a young woman that had been found with an object impaled in her chest. A short time following this, I found out that it was my niece. She had been shot with a crossbow. They thought it was a suicide. My gut wrenched and my heart shattered into a million pieces. The local police are investigating and although it appears to be a homicide, they are deeming her death as unattended. So, with that, I will be offline for a while. I need to heal my heart and be strong for my family.

So sorry, wouldn't it be hard to shoot yourself with a crossbow? I guess you could trigger it with your foot..so sorry..
