There was speculation this morning that the UVA men’s team may cancel the rest of the season.

I feel so sad for her family and loved ones. Rest in peace, little girl and may God be with all who loved her.

what a lovely girl & lovely name. Here eyes are amazing & full off joy.

This is no way to die.. even if you are ugly & with an ugly name.

Prayers for the family, friends of both victim/perp.

Okay, so they supposedly know who did this - the punk from the men’s team. Assuming it’s proven beyond a reasonable doubt, do we REALLY need to keep the punk around? I say put the bastard to rest. I’ll throw the switch myself.

Oh, and I don’t want to hear all the neighbors talking about what a “nice boy” he is. Nice boys don’t kill nice girls.

I have way too many opinions on why this stuff happens but I would not want to say them on this thread when it is sad enough on it’s own!

Blessings

It's surreal. I've been pulling for UVA the last few years and was loving this year.

He wasn't a starter, not sure if he played much.

Why would someone like this kill his pretty lax playing girlfriend? Pregnant and wouldn't have an abortion? What other perceived dire situation could he have been in?

He was not on her facebook friend list.

I suspect she broke off with him and he got obsessed or something along those lines. He killed her with his bare hands,,no weapons. Pretty gruesome.

The usual story is the girl has recently figured out the cute boy is also possesive and creepy. She breaks it off.

Pregnant and wouldn't have an abortion?

If that sort of thing--and I'm talking about the pregnancy, not the abortion--happens among my fellow Wahoos, I haven't seen it.

Thanks for the ping. I found out about this after I got to Nashville on Monday (and I’m way further west right now), and at that point I was just shocked but a bit more worried about the crazy flooding y’all got hit with.

Yes, indeed tons o’fun over the weekend. Aside from some water seepage in the crawl-space end of my basement and mole-tunnel cave-ins, not much damage here. Fortunately, we don’t live in a flood-prone area (well, not true, we’ve been flooded, but not with water, but illegals — I think I’d prefer the water).
