    I can’t believe this has happen in the small town of Annandale. I lived here for about 25 years of my life and never had this type of stuff in my neighborhood.

      There is no such thing as small towns being exempt from this sort of thing! You read the paper in Pine City, and you should see the Sheriff’s blog! No murders but there are a lot of burglaries, damage to private property etc. No place is guaranteed to be a safe habitat!

    Remember the home invasion, murder, near Montrose several years ago…..It can happen anywhere…..anytime.

    I promise you this will end up being some1 he knew, therefore it doesnt matter how small the town is, if it were a random break=in and murder that would be a surprise.
