UPDATED: Tough Morning


Ready to get disturbed?

Bodies have been found with increasing frequency in Hampden these days.

Hawker has it from a reliable source that a body (whether the person was alive or dead at the time has yet to be determined) was found early this morning in front of the Golden West. Two fire trucks were on the scene about 7:00 a.m.

The rumor floating around is that there some sort of vigilante taking down known drug addicts in Hampden.

This is not what I meant when I asked Hampden to get gossip worthy. This rise in violence against ANYONE at ANYTIME in our neighborhood is deeply unsettling.

I'll do some more nosing around today and see what I can find out.

I welcome any knowledge Hawker readers have on the subject.

UPDATE: Apparently, upon further fact checking, there was no body. Just a pool of blood outside GW. I don't propose that that correction is somehow comforting, however.

I heard this same thing. But i cannot find any thing on the news websites about it. Also heard that the blood on the side walk was not properly cleaned off and people where tracking watery blood foot prints into the resturant.
What is going on in Hampden!

enough is enough. This violence has to end. It seems like a body is found every couple of days. This is just unheard of in what is suppose to be the growing trendy area. Hampden is suppose to be on the rise not on the fall. As true as it may be the junkies need to go but turning to violence isn't the way. Push your local police department to get off their lazy rear ends and do what needs to be done.
