Meth. Anytime something bizarre happens, it’s always meth. Or somebody texting while driving.
From the article, “The allegation is that he strangled her in attempts to kill her”.
Why didn’t he just tell her he was going down to the nursing home to visit old folks?
Honey, I’m going fishing.......really.
You’re assuming his girlfriend is blonde and stupid.
Population 87,000. Sounds like a business opportunity here....
What an idiot. He should have took her along to keep her happy.
Its also a wealthy county.
Yes we have one of the most expensive townships in northern Michigan.
Last I knew there was Fantasies strip bar and Crossroads strip bar. Crossroads is not in Grand Traverse but Fantasies is.
Guess I am not up on my stripper clubs. I have to ask my wife.
Madonna’s father owns a vineyard in the Traverse City area.
In traveling through Grand Traverse County, I thought that there was a lot of money there, but that it was mostly seasonal residents who lived elsewhere and flew their G550’s in there for the weekend at their summer homes. It didn’t strike me as a “year round” town.
Over towards Maple City.
The only memory I have of Traverse City is about eight years ago the wife and I while on vacation stayed there one night. We were eating at a Bob Evans restaurant when some guy brought his elderly mother in for lunch. It might have been Mother’s Day. The old biddy loudly complained about everything...the food, the restaurant, the people in the restaurant, and life in general. I maybe wouldn’t have wanted her strangled, but if someone had stuck a large wad of napkins in her mouth, that would have been just fine.
