      This is NOT a news report. This is simply a release on the incident directly from the Mesquite Police, not the MLN. I’m fairly sure the who, when (you already have), and why aren’t public concern and will do NOTHING to prevent this from happening to anyone else. Please let the family grieve in peace, we are.
