Very scary

I read this article about a double murder of a mother and her toddler--then noticed where it was. The town of St Ervan is about 2 miles from St Eval--where I spent four years. Check out this map; be sure to note the scale. In fact, the lane shown in the BBC photo is one I used to go running on regularly from home!

For those of you who arent familiar with the area----there is literally NOTHING there. Think complete isolation. And other than in Newquay, during the summer (when the town is taken over by drunk 18 year olds), there is NO crime. It's the type of place where people leave their doors unlocked and feel completely safe. That's what makes this so shocking. I will definitely be checking up on this story to see what develops.
