When will we get the rest of the story?

I have read the same canned news release say Man shoots women and runs ... almost verbatim on every web site in Augusta, GA Media and AP.

Any plans to fill in the gaps and add some Exclusive details ?

Nice mugshot.

Was that "off the shoulder" bit planned?

Or was it a wardrobe malfunction??
