I don't mean to get lost in the weeds here; I just think it's important to get a clearer picture as soon as possible, and clarifying important details is part of that. The news didn't have many specifics, but one thing they seemed quite certain of is that someone lost their life--and that's more than enough reason to find out exactly what happened, why it happened, and if it could or should have been avoided. That person's loved ones deserve to know the whole story, so I hope someone's working hard on bringing it to them.
