It's just shameful to see something like this. No doubt Houston residents are sick and tired of seeing these headlines, which is why it's so important they do whatever they can to help. Obviously police are going to be working to bring the suspects involved here to justice, but they often stand a much better chance when people in the community keep the details under the spotlight. someone is usually able to connect the dots to a neighbor, friend, family member, or co-worker so they can come forward with identifying information. The fact police have the pickup in their possession is also an encouraging sign that it's just a matter of time before the suspects involved here are brought to justice. Once that happens, investigators can work on what exactly led to those people fleeing the scene in the first place. One way or another, the family involved in this awful tragedy deserve some answers.
