Don't you think if you knew the family or individual that you would have heard it by word of mouth by now? Second, it's very common for media outlets to not release names of suicides. Let it go.

For starters if I know the family or the individual i would like to send my condolences. Second, my tax dollar paid to scoop up his body so I have every right to know who it is.

Heroin is illegal & he still had it. Making drugs illegal doesn't stop people from getting them. Obviously!!

It's just liberals killing liberals! If they continue we will run out of stupid liberals. Apparently white doctors killing unborn black babies doesn't matter. It only matters if it's a white cop does it. You go Planned Parenthood.

'This deer fell from the sky'

Deer jumps from overpass and lands on minivan in Northern Illinois

From from dailyherald.com:

Heidi Conner came out of a daze to hear her 8-year-old daughter screaming in the back seat of their minivan.

Next to the West Dundee mom -- inside the car -- lay the body of a mangled deer. How the 200- to 300-pound doe got there baffled police and emergency room doctors.

They assumed Conner hit the animal Sunday afternoon while driving about 70 mph west on the Jane Addams Tollway near Hoffman Estates.

"I'm like, 'No, a deer hit me,'" she said. "Nobody can believe this deer fell from the sky."

Conner, 37, and four of her five kids were just two exits shy of leaving the tollway when witnesses say the deer jumped off the Route 72 overpass and landed on her 2004 Chevy minivan about noon Sunday, Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Paul Carlos said.

The creature crashed through the windshield, clipping Conner's forehead and shoulder and coming to rest right down the middle of the van. The head settled by the glove compartment between Conner and her 13-year-old son, who was sitting in the front passenger seat.
