Paula Reyes Killed in House Explosion Accident in Garland, TX

Clearly there needs to be further investigations into what happened here, but a big concern going forward is going to be the possibility this was caused by a gas leak. Some folks may recall years ago when a young girl died due to a gas explosion. Investigators later found that there were leaking gas lines all over the neighborhood, and the energy company somehow had no idea there was a problem until after someone died. Could it be that similar oversights led to this tragedy? One way or another, if this tragedy could have been prevented, those who failed to prevent need to answer for what happened.
