    Learned some horrifying news on social media today

    I can't say I called this guy a friend, but he was a guy who was a regular customer (and VERY occasional coworker) at a shop I worked in 6-8yrs ago. Typically saw and talked to him at least a couple times a week. Nice guy, good sense of humor. Was engaged in the road cycling community in town.

    https://www.theindychannel.com/news/...-be-a-homicide

    The headline cut off on Facebook, and my first thought was that he was found in a ditch after being hit by a car. But this is worse, and certainly more shocking, to be a suspected murder because his body was moved and dumped in that ditch. I hope they police are able to track down what happened and catch whoever did it.

    That's terrible, hope they find out what happened.
    Can't say I miss living in Indy... Crime was bad, and getting worse every year.

    Is it fair to question a man's character based on his newspaper photo being a mug shot?
    Bicycles don't have motors.

    I wondered about the photo myself. All I knew was the guy (only through the shop, though), and I didn't know anyone who disliked him.

    Unfortunately, it seems someone did.

    That reminds me that I consider myself a nicer person in part because I put in so many mile on pavement. Not that its likely to make any difference........

    Isn't that always the case.
