The Killer has been found
My new blog was going to be about my New Year's resolutions for 2011.
Unfortunately, this will have to wait for a later blog. I found out last night that the killer in my close friend's case has been identified and arrested. Here is the link.
I know everyone wants the facts right now and I'm sure they will come out in the next few days. Either way, I am highly confident that Rusty did nothing to provoke these actions. Regardless, being that this is still an open investigation, I cannot comment on this case. I hope that you will respect that.
It's crazy that for so long I wanted this guy to be found and NOW that I see his picture, I have so much anger towards him. I already have two raw fists from hitting the bag so much lately. I really took to the bag this morning. All I could do was picture this guy's face. This man took one of my best friends. Rusty should still be here. He was robbed. All of us were. His Andrea and the kids will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers and we will be there for them always.
My Andrea and I are hurting right now as I'm sure so many are. I couldn't even talk about it last night. It's ironic that I was watching the Craig's List Killer movie on TV the night before. Yesterday I did some research on him because I wondered why someone could take someone else's life. In strange ways, I understood some of his issues. For example, I know what it was like to have secrets and even the double-life part dealing with my own depression issues. I just didn't understand how someone could commit murder. Now I'm back pondering that again...but this time it hits close to home.
Rusty's vigil has been postponed but I hope he knows that justice will finally prevail. Rusty, this man will never go free. We will make sure of that fact. We love you.
I have enclosed a picture of my good friend Rusty holding my son and also a picture of the man who was arrested in the case. Please keep Rusty's family in your prayers.
