Those aged 18-20 are also adults. It's unfortunate that the young woman was murdered but the murderer or murderers will face justice.

What could she have possibly done to deserve to be murdered and thrown away like garbage?

A few questions . . .

How and where did the Montgomery County police obtain her picture?

Did she have an arrest record?

Were there any convictions?

If so, could her associates have been responsible for her demise?
