Pedestrian Tales From The Middle of the Road, #16

It’s been a while… Admittedly, I haven’t actually been reading the print version of the Orlando Sentinel every day- so there’s always a chance that some deaths slip by me.  I truly think we’ve had a couple of weeks without one, though- which may be a record in these parts.

At any rate, this is a short story.  It’s not sweet by any means, though.  It’s yet another preventable death, yet another family left to mourn- and yet another young lady of 28 years old that must carry the memories of this tragedy for a long, long time.

Add one more to the list of lives lost under the watch of Orlando Police Chief Paul Rooney and Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings.  May God bless, keep and comfort both the Priester and Simeon families.
