    Mike and colleagues, Shouldn’t you include of mention that both the man and woman are personally known to you, to avoid any conflict of interest in your reporting?

    • I am unaware that I know the man as the police have not released a name. As I was informed if this by someone on Facebook messenger, I don’t see any conflict of interests. I didn’t put any hearsay out until I received a press release from the police. Thanks for your concern.
