"We have an intruder in the house next door.…The intruder was in the bedroom with a hammer. The woman who lives there thinks she may have strangled him. He was down when she left."

    "Can you put her on the phone?"

    "She's bleeding."

    "Does she need an ambulance?"

    "No, she's a nurse. She says call an ambulance for the guy. He may be dead."


God, the Willamette Week fucking sucks. Not particularly a comment on this specific article, I'm just reminded every time I read something they put out that there is not a single good writer on their staff. Perfectly fine journalists, but perfectly shitty writters.

Sidenote, I live 2 or 3 blocks from the husband's trailer park. Weird knowing all these street names, I don't think I've ever had that experience before.
