    Doesn't this person also look like the man/woman that was involved in the disturbance at Serpentine Liquors a while ago? Kinda petite and wearing a blue-ish purplish rain suit? Definitely similar to the incident at Woody's - for sure.

      Because that would be a complete waste of money. Use your head. There is no problem with the BPS making arrests or presenting evidence. The problem is no witnesses will come forward and help to pin charges on the suspected murderers.
