I hope that they catch these thugs. They are the worst of society. They should be caught, tagged and monitored for the rest of their sorry lives.

To the Cronin family and other loved ones: I am deeply sorry for the loss of Mr. Cronin. It was a terrible crime. I have been through something very similar and it is a nightmare. I hope these murderers are found, tried and convicted. Wishing you support and peace.
