More spelling and grammar errors, more evidence of the decline of Patch since Joni Hubred-Golden was so unceremoniously dumped.

This was taken from the Press's reporter and was clariied after much anger by the family to read that the suspect called the police from the scene.The writing is so poor and the ideas are not thought out.I am sure a school paper would have been better written.The ediors never catch any errors ahead of the print copy.
