More Violence in Albany

This is such a small town. To think of all the violence going on here, is difficult, but much of it is drug fueled.

Click post title to go to today's crime report.

A man is in custody after a struggle with his wife. She was shot in the chest with a .357 magnum, but survived. He drove her to the hospital and dropped her off, where she told ER employees she accidentally shot herself. The couple have a child, who has allegedly witnessed repeated domestic violence incidents in the home. Hopefully, if his mother survives, she will leave this man for good or DHS will get that kid out of there.

Another incident in the crime report indicates at 6:15 a.m. Sunday, a man reported his wife missing, but she was discovered dead of a gunshot wound to the head by a passerby, at the park and ride just off 15 at 7:20 a.m. That's not much difference in time. Supposedly the door to the car was open and the gun at the scene. It's listed as a suicide, but the time frame is a little strange and the fact the door of the car was open. I would consider this suspicious.

So much violence in just one small town. What is going on with our world?


  1. Unfortunately if she told ER employees that "she accidentally shot herself" thats a good sign she won't leave or get help of any sort. So the next best thing would be to place the child with a better family member - a grandparent or aunt or uncle whose home is free from domestic abuse.

  2. That's a really violent hold on someone, so that she even lies when he shoots her. The kid needs out of there forever.
