It's Difficult to Hate a Sad Story With a Happy Ending

The man who randomly killed a Cleveland retiree and posted video of the crime on Facebook shot himself to death in his car Tuesday during a police chase in Pennsylvania, ending a multistate manhunt less than 48 hours after it began.
The "why" question won't likely ever be answered, so the family of the victim, Mr. Robert Godwin Sr., won't have that questioned answered. They won't have the satisfaction of watching the trial of Asswipe of Cleveland and see him sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison (whether he ultimately died by lethal injection, of a shanking, or of old age).

On the other hand, Asswipe's self-capping did save the taxpayers of Cuyahoga County a few hundred thousand dollars, at a minimum. So there is that.

DNA evidence and an attentive state trooper helped find the man authorities believe killed a New York City woman last summer who was out jogging near her mother's Massachusetts home, authorities said Saturday.
His attorney says:
Speaking before the hearing, the suspect’s lawyer said his client has no criminal record and the case is no slam dunk.
I don't do criminal law, but I don't see the relevance of the Asswipe of Princeton not having a criminal record before he allegedly tried to rape and ultimately murdered the victim, Ms. Vanessa Marcotte. As long as the judge doesn't toss out the DNA evidence, Asswipe's lawyer is going to have to come up with some believable explanation as to how Asswipe's DNA was found under Ms. Marcotte's fingernails. So it would seem that Asswipe is going to be residing at MCI Walpole for the next several decades.

Thumbs up for the McD drive-thru folks who recognized the Asswipe of Cleveland, and proceeded to park him because his fries weren't ready while they rang police!

Unfortunately, the state of Massachusetts has had a series of major problems with their crime labs. More than one lab person appears to have been faking results. So let's call it a fifty fifty on whether the asswipe in question did the crime.
