    This is very interesting. I wonder if there's also a connection to other recent road side deaths

    Father help us all.It is said that this year is a challenging year full of good and evil both in the spiritual and physical realm. Many are seeking souls to carry out their many rituals but God is good and children of God let us fast and pray to wipe out the evil strongholds among us. Remember good always over come evil. Pray pray pray without ceasing.
