This is so sad, and hate to say it but nothing new. This has got to stop. Put cameras back there behind the 7-11, get rid of the wooded area and have police posted in that area at all times. Come on PWC this has got to stop.

That 7-Eleven has a large amount of day porters. When I'm at the light, I tend to see lots of them in that walk path and walking into the wooded area out back. While tragic, this is not a surprise. Woodbridge has gotten bad the past 10 years or so and it's getting worse.


Check the time most killings occur. No one with good intentions is out in the street at 1,2,3,4,5 a.m. Things happen for a reason.
