    O.K. Confuzzled, if a body is discovered in the 600 block of Hollis Street and then a short time later another body is discovered elsewhere of someone who resides at 610 Hollis Street...they are most likely connected.

    The crime of passion done in hot blood, then the execution as reality awakened in him....justice done, but only harm and loss prevailed.
