Here's a story that had me glued to my phone looking for news updates last night: yesterday T.J. Lane, a teenager convicted of killing three students at an Ohio high school in 2012, escaped from a state prison with two other prisoners and was on the loose for nearly six hours.
Lane was captured at 1:20 a.m., but the hours he was unaccounted for were terrifying for the residents of Chardon, the community nearly 200 miles to the east where he fatally shot three students and wounded two others. Police officers were sent to guard the victims' families' houses, and school was canceled on Friday.
When you read how Lane behaved during his sentencing, you'll understand why officials took the precautions they did. I cannot even begin to imagine what the families were going through before Lane was caught.
