    Thanks for the update Zach. I live in Mississippi, but nowhere near ClarkSdale, I live near a town called Clarkdale, in South Central Ms. Clarksdale is up in north Ms., in the Delta area. I hadn't heard of this tragic event, but reading the article you referenced, it sounds like the alleged perpetrator may have been this candidate's partner, but no one knows yet. I guess the story will follow when it is developed.
