    I would just to say She is someome ‘s daughter, granddaughter, sister, neice, and mother. This is a tragedy. She was not mentally ill. She got mixed up with the wrong people and way over her head. Two families suffered a tragedy today. So all of you can keep your comments or suggestions to your self. I am not trying to be rude or ignorant but none if you knew her.

    @Steve, the story with more info at that time is where I found out it was a she, and that she committed suicide. Above the article said; “No word yet on the driver’s identity or the cause of death. No word yet if this is related to another investigation into a homicide victim found in nearby Montoursville Sunday morning.”

    protecting and serving by putting innocent people at risk during a pursuit. all in order to arrest someone. chases are bad business, cost taxpayers extra money and put innocent lives at risk.

    I thought the police weren`t suppose to have races anymore? This seems to happen a lot and the perp ends up dead!!

      Yes Betty, by all means, the police should let all the criminals just drive away and not pay for what they have done. Personally, if this person had anything to do with the death of the man in Montoursville, then justice has been served.

        Did you read the story? It was the driver of car who was dead after he crashed during a CHASE.( Just in case Betty still thinks it a race.)

        @Steve that info wasn’t available at the first post of the story, and not he, it was a she…and SHE killed herself.

        @ CC yes they just clarified that thanks. So now you’re referring to the “Perl” as she. Congrats. For all you know SHE was mentally ill at the time this all took place. Try to show a little class before you put anyone in a category.

        *perp (sorry) BTW did you read your own comments? “Let’s hope it was the perp” who died. Don’t try to make it look like you had any more information than anyone else at first.
