    Thats why I say that the owners of each store should be held somewhat responsable for there should be more than one worker at night or at least a glass protection between employee and customer, when are they going to learn? How many more lives will be taken before someone finally gets wise?

    My thoughts and prayers are with the family. This is one reason why I refuse to work in gas stations/convience stores.

    My sincere thoughts and prayers go out to the family of this woman. I also hope for a successful investigation and conclusion to the case so that the offender can meet their just punishment. I can understand robbing a store, but not killing the clerk.

    Bet you its a youthful offender who graduated from juvenile court to adult crime like the Mary Hattie case.
