    >>I don't believe I can say what I want to say at this time. I will say as a reminder that the body was found in the woods. When the police are ready to release more information they will. I'm also praying at this time that what I believe to be is not the case.

    There was an accident it front of Sunbelt Rentals, not Thornton Rd. IT was a tap, no damage to either car. BUT someone was carried out in neck brace and stretcher. I smell someone faking injuries.....
