    How awful. I hope the guy is caught soon.

    Holy cow! That is just awful! I can't even begin to imagine a co-worker that you work with that closely being killed like that! That would be so horrid!

    And the other patients and family members there at the time? I would hate to think of the fear that they felt!

    I hope they catch this person immediately!

    Oh, wow. That's such a sad story. I hope that they can complete this investigation to ensure that this does not happen again.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the family members involved in this tragedy. Hopefully this guy will be caught VERY soon.
