Hello fellow ATS'ers I've come to you guys for some "Insight?" and possibly peace of mind.
I would like to start off that this has been the most anxiety/anger/confusing week I have experienced.
Now maybe it's because I'm a young adult (23) but nonetheless its been quite ridiculous. Where should I start?
My Fiance and I found out we were expecting our first baby April 10th 2014. It was filled with joy, we lived in our college apartment though so that
needed to change. So we were able to purchase our first home in a little village called Mineral,Illinois. 2010 Census:230 people. I come from
Dallas,Texas which this was bit of a culture shock for myself, but I thought well it will be safe for our children and so on.
Day 2 of Living in our new home: my Fiance's cousin was found dead in his home in Kewanee,Il. Apparently due to a asthma attack. Note: He was a known
Meth user, and he has had several occurrences of drug over dose near-death like experiences. So, her family was a little shook up that he layed dead
for a (week)? according to what I had heard.
Day 4 of living in our new home: I'm outside installing new headlights for my truck and I hear a vehicle drive by ( In a town the size of one city
block its pretty quiet so you just naturally look at the vehicle) I noticed the rear passenger door was open on a SUV. Note: Going no more than 15
mph. So I said to myself, hmm thats odd, but whatever. And then I see a body "plop" out of the vehicle. At first it seemed like they dumped some trash
but i quickly realized it was a body. The suspects continued to drive another 20 yards before they realized I was already on the phone so they came
back. Now, I'm not from around here obviously, but my Fiance grew up a town west of Mineral, called Annawan which has roughly 800 residents. So you
know everyone basically. Any who, my first thought was Geeze, this is a mentally challenged kid who jumped out, only because the suspects were telling
me "jumped out" " He jumped out ". but i ran and grabbed my fiance who is a RN and she immediately recognized him as a classmate. Unresponsive,
severe head trauma It wasn't pretty. But the two suspects changed their story at least 5 times, and at one point even saying they were private
investigators. The victim soon later died in the hospital with a Ruptured Vertebrae in his brain and a fractured skull. You can read the "official"
Now, Granted I did not see
what happened in the back seat. but according to texts sent to and from phones they were after him. two additional men were later arrested. Facebook
posts on the victims page also hint at an issue. Now, what ive heard from the SA is that he shorted them a ounce and a half of weed. now im assuming
those men were coming to collect. but long story shortened (Kind of ) the two initial suspects made bail a couple of days ago with only impersonating
a peace officer. 4,500 and these guys are back out. not to mention the brothers are registered sex offenders in 6 of the surrounding counties. I'm
absolutely frustrated that now these two men who apparently just murdered this 20 year old now exactly where the key witness and his fiance live.
Should i go out and purchase a weapon to keep safe or do i need to " Calm my nerves " according to the Deputy Sheriff?
Day 6 of living in new home: My Fiance had a miscarriage at 12 weeks. shes not handling it very well.
So to sum it all up, Any advice on Miscarriage tips? and do i have the right to be a little un easy with these men out on the streets? or am i over
reacting? Thanks ats
