    Although I know you will not print this, Your headline says 'Found" - but the story indicates she simply came home. "Turning her life around" - I don't think so.

    I have worked in Rocky Mt. for 23 years. And I have seen a lot of things that probably not many people have. Its a jungle. Just be aware of your surroundings. And avoid areas of known trouble. Simple rule of survival.

    You know their catch phrase was "The City On The Rise". All this time, I did not know they were talking about their crime rate?

    it has nothing to do with the police force, either way people are going to make the crazy decisions they choose to make!

    Yes Rocky Mount does have a police force, but their hands are tied by Chief Manley, Knight, and the rest of his cronies....thats why the town has gone downhill.
