This is someone I know and this is very sad. My condolences to Phil's family. God will get you through this. I'm praying for you all!

Did the neighbors hear anything? Was this beloved community member asleep when she was attacked? This happened in a densely populated area, so it's hard to imagine that no one heard an argument, a struggle or her being attacked.

Reading the news about violence against women just in the Bay Area lately is mind-boggling.
