  1. everything that was written was information used from what they call an affidavit of probable cause. this is what the police used to obtain a warrant and make an arrest. do get an understanding on how our reports are obtained before you blame the reporter for publishing what was supplied to them by the courts based on the complaint filed by state police.

  2. investigation needs to be done. what this man did is sick and wrong but deciding he did it based on “she told the same exact story to another officer.” is the exact opposite of justice. If a burglar told the same exact story of how he didn’t rob a store he wouldn’t be let go, so why should this man just be assumed guilty? Lets wait for court before we try to assume he’s guilty. Innocent until proven guilty.
    A reporter should know better than to use phrases like that indicating that he is guilty.
