    so sad to hear this. I’ve known Jim for several years, and feel blessed to call him friend, he was a very generous man and willing to share with pretty much anyone. the world will be lacking with Jim gone.

    Shouldn’t the article read, ” suspect in double murder arrested?” otherwise it sounds like he has already been convicted.
