Leila Fowler was killed in her home on April 27.

A Valley Springs family faces the brutal loss of a child, purportedly at the hands of an intruder. Area residents rally to help. Then the family learns of a further possible tragedy, that a sibling may have committed the crime.

What do Valley Springs residents do? Get angry and pull the plug on support! Are you serious? So the parents should be punished now? The suffering family should be left high and dry? I'm certainly glad I don't live among these self-righteous neighbors.
