Tragedy on the Plains!

Have you guys heard about the shooting in Auburn yet? I am blown away at something like this happening in Auburn. How sad for that poor girl's family.

You can read about it HERE

An Auburn University student was shot to death late Tuesday near campus, and her car was found in flames on campus minutes later, police said.

Eighteen-year-old Lauren A. Burk, of Marietta, Ga., was found with a single gunshot wound on Alabama Highway 147, and was transported to East Alabama Medical Center where she died.

Auburn police said they received a call about an injured woman at 9:08 p.m., which led them to Burk. Nineteen minutes later they received a call about a car in flames on campus, and found Burk's car fully engulfed. No arrests have been made, and police continue to investigate.

Police said there "is insufficient information to assume any additional danger to others exists," and they have increased police presence on campus. An Auburn University spokeswoman said no emergency measures have been implemented.

Also, a similar thing happened here in the plains a few months ago. Missing girl, still not found, however they did recover her burnt car. Scary times here. They say not to worry that there are no reason to think this could happen to female student. What the "f" ever. Why couldn't it?

Ok, I do not want Caroline to leave the house EVER! I feel so sorry for that girl's family. What a horrible tradegy. I always felt so safe in Auburn, even when walking in "rape zone."
