On Friday about 15 minutes walking distance from where I live a female teacher at Bramalea Secondary School was shot in the head as she walked to her car. She died later that night and her husband is in custody as police continue to investigate this senseless, horrific act.

Living in the Greater Toronto Area, we have our share of murders but it’s always frightening when they happen close to home. If it is determined that this is a case of domestic violence taken to the ultimate end, the sense of fear will only increase.

I cannot understand what drives a person to commit the most final of crimes. When that crime is perpetrated on someone you know, and supposedly loved at one time, it goes beyond all reason.
