Suspect Charged with Washington Break-ins

A suspect has been charged with at least one of the recent daytime burglaries that have occurred in Washington. Raymond Bell, a 30 year old man from Washington, was arrested last Thursday when he was a passenger in a vehicle in which drug paraphernalia was found. He was a person of interest in the recent daytime burglaries. The next day, Detective Kevin Blackburn went to the house of a relative of Bell’s. The relative turned over a wicker basket full of jewelry that had been brought to the house. That jewelry was identified as stolen from a home in the 500th block of Hickory Street. Other items have been recovered from the initial burglary and have been returned to owners. More follow-up is being conducted and additional charges may be forthcoming. Raymond Bell was charged with 1 count of burglary in the second degree and one count of stealing over $500. Bond was set at $50,000 cash only.

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.
