Poor woman. Being strangled to death - there is nothing fast about that - the terror and pain she must have felt are unimaginable. I hope the person who did this lives a long life of suffering in prison and dies a slow, painful, lonely death.

I always feel sorry for people that find dead bodies. I know the real victim here is that poor woman, but still, the guy that found her is going to need some time to regroup
