There's nothing more hateful, than killing a child. Today I covered the murder of 11 year old Bryan Lockley. Freaks me out that his name and mine are the same right down to the spelling.
We talked to his sister and she showed us the trail of blood that led to where the body was found. I can't imagine the pain that something like that happening to one of my family members would cause.
This wasn't the first time I covered a kid's murder. It just never gets any easier. Was it sad? Yeah, it was sad. I just hope we didn't add to the pain that the family was going through. It's pretty hard to keep focused on the job we need to do when we'd rather be somewhere else.
When I got home. I had a beer and hugged my wife and daughter. I covered the story and I hope they catch the SOB who murdered Bryan.
This is my first day out. Welcome to my world.
