It has been a kind of dark day. A dreary rain has been falling and I spent some time following up on the blogo-drama of the death of Taylor Behl and the internet "clues" surrounding Ben Fawley. The entire story can be read at Court TV's Crime Library.
Being the parent of highly internet friendly teenagers, I was shaken by this story and I laid down some rules in a talk with my teens. We'd had this talk before but I showed them this story as another example.
I can't imagine the pain and loss of Taylor's parents. I can only feel the fear and hurt that wells up inside myself. So I offer this news clip to you for your information and in memory of Ms. Behl...because the only other thing anyone can offer her now is the office of the dead.
