A friend (more of an acquaintance, really) from high school was stabbed to death in front of a local bar last year. After he got into a fight with someone, the guy came back and stabbed him in the head.

No, not exactly. I know someone whose sister and boyfriend were murdered by the girl's ex. Then the girl's father came home and saw their bodies and had a heart attack and died as well.

My uncle was murdered when I was 13 or so. I had only met him three or four times (he lived in another state) at the time of his death. He was involved in a lot of drugs and his former lover and their drug dealer shot him in his appartment.

My oldest sister was stabbed to death by her ex-boyfriend when I was 3. He spent 7 years in jail.

Yes. My aunt was murdered while showing a house, I think I was in the 5th grade. My uncle's wife's sister was murdered by her husband when I was in the 8th grade. I knew the sister and her husband so it was really creepy.

Oddly enough, no. My contact usually comes after they are already dead.

When I was 16, my best friend's grand-father was stabbed to death in his condo by thieves, who also cut off his finger to steal his Knights of Columbus ring. They never found the guy.

The closest I've been was when I met and chatted with Lana Clarkson the summer before she was murdered by Phil Spector.

I guess I'm lucky...or, rather, my friends and family are lucky.

A former co-worker was murdered a few years ago. He, his wife, and their baby were killed execution-style. Some kind of drug situation.

A former co-worker was shot execution style believed to be by his roommate as part of a gang initiation. It happened April Fools day many years ago. He was a good guy too.

A former co-worker of mine was murdered a couple of weeks ago in Newark. So sad, he was a good guy.

And a kid I lived across from was killed by a drunk driver in the middle of the day two blocks away from our houses. Wonderful experience when you're 8 years old.

My friend was one of the students who died in the deliberately-set dorm fire at Seton Hall University back in January of 2000. The guys who did it were indicted on arson and felony murder charges. It's eight years later and it still chills me to think about how he and those other students died.

A good friend of mine was shot to death in 2000. She was a sweet, genuinely wholesome person who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

still think about that every now and then when I drive past that area or the Quik Stop near by where 2 of the 6 were killed being the crime was so random..

I've never known any victims, but I know a murderer.
