There’s nothing about this crime story from North Carolina that isn’t awful and sad. Except of course, the lede, from AP reporter Jeffrey Collins, which is pretty great.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Police yesterday said a North Carolina father sent his daughter to school for two weeks with a dire warning: Tell anyone about your two dead siblings at home, and I’ll kill you and your 2-year-old brother, too.
Like a punch to the teeth. [via]
