Murder charges were dropped Wednesday against a family friend suspected of killing a man who was allegedly assaulting a 13-year-old Boy Scout, authorities said.

The investigation is still ongoing. Police said the charges were dropped against Carmen Reyes, 53, because detectives need more time to gather evidence in the case.

Reyes is the family friend of a 13-year-old boy who was attacked about 5 a.m. Saturday while helping his mother load the car for a camping trip. The assault happened near 182nd Street and Van Ness Avenue in Torrance.

Are you sure it’s a woman? I’ve known men named Carmen, too.

Me, too. And men named Guadalupe and Dolores ... but no men named Fatima.

You are correct. Here in south women are getting permits and training in huge numbers.

The photo caption says a woman, the article doesn’t specify. Maybe the newspeople didn’t know.

I get Sunday School lists with the wrong number of boys and girls, because the administrator doesn’t know which “Ryan,” “Taylor,” or “Guadalupe” is, off hand.

No Fatima? Try 14th and U Streets in DC. Lots of men with womens’ name, and dress, and makeup. Maybe even an ocassional congressman.

“Police said Reyes shot 19-year-old Sergio Wilms, who died at the scene.”

Just taking out some garbage society won’t have to deal with anymore.

LOL! I haven’t been to that place, I don’t think, although I visited my parents a few times when they lived in Alexandria.

I know two Fatimas: a 50-year-old woman, Syrian father and Columbian mother; and a 6-month-old baby girl, Mexican parents.

Not a woman, but an Asian man in his 50s.

Perhaps a Filipino. They have Carmens, too.

The caption must be wrong then. It said:

“Police have dropped charges against the woman who allegedly shot and killed a 19-year-old”

So why did the police attack the boy scout?
