Hamilton was charged and arraigned one day after he confessed to his involvement in the crime and led investigators back to the scene of the incident.

      Its happen all over the world, once the thoughts pass the 18″ channel its all over. The lack of men and also the real men , remember lots of men now are on the other side. This gives rise for poor judgement on the part of women , once they attain puberty. Hormones start talking and the mind falls apart. While some thoughts from more matured minds may give some advise, its often too late.” ayu had you time so leave me alone”. Finally the lack of monetary and other social needs influences the life style and consequently the outcome. “RIP beautiful.”.

      You see this all of the time. Nice looking educated girls putting themselves with road men. Is it that ‘Love knows no barriers/They don’t have a voice when their hearts make their choices’? Or is it that these girls are in too much of a hurry? I think that it is the latter because you don’t often see respectable men pursuing romantic relationships with street women.
      These girls need to take their time and look around a little.
