WSFB reports that the woman was fully clothed, and her body was in the water for days. In any case, I'm guessing that the perpetrator (unless it was suicide) was male, and we seem to have a CRISIS of violence perpetrated upon women in our nation.---------------------------------------------------------------------------This is another tragedy for not only the woman and her loved ones, but for us all.

Probably best to let the autopsy and investigation play out before blaming men as the cause of death. If it does turn out that it was some sort of male perpetrated domestic violence type deal then by all means blast THE MAN but not all men. I've not been violent to anyone and I would rather not be tarred by your rather large brush.. thanks everso.

MAC's blanket accusation of all MEN is LAME at best. Thats not to say I agree with Chambers who has used the large brush against many other races on patch to fit his agenda. I would rather comment on the MEDIA, namely channel 3 who asked me in front of my 5 year old at the beach if we saw the dead body in the water. A 5 year old should not be hearing or asked such a question but these MONEY GRUBBIN CT reporters are more concerned with their ratings!

Ah good, as long as you don't agree with me I know I'm not off in left field then.
