Death of a lacrosse player..

Saturday morning, like the 1:30 am last call from Friday night, Saturday morning, one of the player’s from DS1 college lacrosse team was attacked and killed. As the weekend and now this week have passed, reading the news reports, that local police along with other law enforcement officers arrested two young men and have charged them with the murder. The current newspaper story says that the suspects admitted to the fight and kicking one of the players while he was on the ground.  It would appear from reading the news accounts that words were exchanged and alcohol was involved.

What a shame. We (my DW and I) know the player’s parents. We will be traveling to the wake and funeral on Saturday.

Here are some links to the story in the local media. I can say that my oldest child (DS1) made that walk home from the bar many a night. We feel quite fortunate that we never got that late night phone call..
