I'm more than saddened by the tragic and senseless death of a local social worker, Brenda Yeager.
Missing since Wednesday afternoon, Mrs. Yeager's dead body was discovered by police inside a car being burned by Stephen Foster, Sr. According to reports, Mrs. Yeager was sexually assaulted and murdered by Foster's son, Stephen Foster, Jr. and his fiance Rosemary Forney, while on a scheduled professional visit to their home.
Here's the latest news.
I didn't know Mrs. Yeager, but I know dozens of people like her. People who go into the community to help young children who are disabled, ill or abused, to support the elderly or to help improve the lives of those living in poverty.
Heroes. People who deserve attention for the work that they do day-to-day.
Mrs. Yeager was a hero who, sadly, had her life taken by the very people she was trying to assist.
She deserved better.
