A local connection to Kenyan violence
Speaking of true crime (see posts below), Minnesota Monitor has this amazing report about the death of Wesly Ngetich, two-time winner of the Grandma's Marathon in Duluth. As the world becomes more interconnected, tragedy is always just six degrees of separation away.
UPDATE: The Duluth News Tribune has a profile of Ngetich (italics added):
According to information provided by his manager, Hussein Makke of West Chester, Pa., Ngetich was killed by a shot through the chest with an arrow in his hometown region of Trans Mara, Kenya. Ngetich, 34, was married with three children, ages 8, 6 and 1.
