There goes the property values...

This week has been quite exciting at the store. Now that the murder van has finally been moved life will get back to normal. What is a murder van you ask? It's what we affectionately have been calling the HUGE MASSIVE RV parked in front of the store this week. Why was it there? Well, there was a double murder next door on Sunday! Well, technically there is a tiny apartment building next to the store and on the other side of that is a house where the murders took place. Delightful huh? The whole block has been closed down, with police tape everywhere. It's really been hurting business, as there is not much room to park even though we have our own parking lot. At first they didn't realize it was a homicide and the police left pretty quickly. Then the autopsies came back and now they have been ruled a homicide. So, this HUGE police RV thing has been parked in front of the store. It's their Crime Scene Investigation Unit.
It's all been a big mystery around here. The police are not releasing any information. Not even the names of the victims or how they were murdered. Just asking a lot of questions that no one seems to have the answers to. It's quite scary actually. They have assured us that it appears to be an isolated incident and not a random act.
Thank goodness we aren't trying to sell or rent the building. I don't think it'd be worth much right now.

How crazy is that? I'd be kind of scared especially since no one is saying anything. Stay safe!

Speaking of the store, any chance you can send me the local? Hubby and I moved Oct 2005 and have not found any neat used book stores! I tried to figure out with you snow pics once time, but i'm not familiar enough with Colorado yet! nicole dot wilker at gmail dot com. (in case the comment didn't hit your inbox)
