Depressing

Herald-Sun:
A second man allegedly involved in the murder of Johnnie Junior Moore was arrested Thursday morning.

Mark Anthony Stevons, 18, of the 1700 block of Avondale Drive, was arrested in Raleigh by the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force.

Used to let him hang out in the living room when he was younger and his older brothers would lock him out of the house.

He's the same age as my younger daughter. Last time i saw him was in April. He'd dropped out of school (as had my daughter) and was looking for work, unsuccessfully. He asked when the neighborhood potluck in the park was going to be. For all i know last year's July 4th event was the only time he'd ever shared a meal like that.

  • Depressing. Yes.

    I remember reading something to the effect of when someone gets murdered, two lives get ruined -- the deceased, and the one who has just locked his/her life into nothing much good any more.

    Not that I'm equating the lives or results. But just noting that the damage is more than people than sometimes count up.

    Not to presume guilt, I'm still sorry to hear. This storyline is far too common.

  • Did he live in the famous Avondale house, the street address of which I can't summon at this time?

    If so, doesn't that make it two (alleged) murderers who are associated with that address?
