…at least Brett did, from the couple next door, who supposedly got it from the cops as the cops questioned them.
Worse, much worse. The man didn’t live in that apartment; he was dating the woman who did. She’d broken up with him, and he’d come over and they’d had a big fight, out in the yard between the apartments and in the parking lot. She went back inside, he opened the garage and hung himself, she *came back out*, saw it, and was trying to hold him up and save him.
Evidently there were other people out and kids playing while this was going on — that’s how the cops got called. Man was supposedly dead by the time the cops got there, but they left the body hanging and the garage *open* while they questioned everyone…
(yeah, yeah, I understand about not disturbing a potential crime scene, but given that it was dark & in a lightless garage, how the hell could they be sure he was dead?)
I hate walking that way. I don’t even want to walk there in daylight, towards that garage. You can *feel* the area where the kid walked, the moment you hit the boundary, I swear. If it wasn’t for us signing another year lease last week, I’d be so gone and out of here.
Amusing note: the couple next door have had their car broken into three times in the past couple months & had their radio stolen. They keep replacing it, and the car keeps getting broken into — the thieves don’t break the window or pop the lock, so it seems they’ve got one of those ‘jimmy’ tools AAA uses. However…kiddos, you got a garage for a reason. If you’d clean out your freakin’ junk & use it like God intended…
