So she was found outdoors? It would have been easy to assume that she would be found frozen to death, what with the wind-chill factor in the single digits for the new year so far. And the county police found her in the wee hours of the morning, when it's darkest and coldest.; coffee fits into this line of work extremely well. Before reading Rich Kinsey's column yesterday, I had years before listened through a novel told first-hand by a homicide detective, who often drank French roast coffee at home, always having a pot ready, for he never knew what time of day or night he would get a call about suspects in cases he was working on. Always on call for tips that might resolve mysteries and catch criminals.

Glad that she was found and hope the very best for this young lady.

What's the deal with this ongoing story? The woman is 34 years old. She has to get written permission or submit notice she is leaving or taking off? I hope she gets her medication, but if she wants to take off into the night, that is her business! has released that she frequents some seedy areas such as the city of Detroit plus she was pulled over near Michigan and Campbell St, which is sort of a drug and prostitute area. IS A2.Com implying anything? Either way, she was found. Unless she has warrants, giver her the meds she needs, and if she wants to split, fine!

Mr Abe In case you were unaware.Sometimes people that don't take their medication do harm to themselves or others! Wake Up!

Honest Abe- All of these questions you've asked are completely legitimate. Unfortunately, the only acceptable community responses generally follow the "hallelulja, thank god, wonderful news" mold. If you're looking for news and reporting, try the NY Times or the Wall Street Journal.

That information came from AAPD. Police released the areas where she was known to frequent because they hoped people in those areas might help locate her.

"Is A2.Com implying anything?" Not that I can see. Probably not anything that can be picked up by anyone without your apparently detailed knowledge of the seedier areas of SE Michigan.
