Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

Elder Morgan W. Young
by Cordeiro
Elder Morgan W. Young, a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was shot and killed by an unknown assailiant late Monday afternoon. He was serving as a member of the Richmond, Virginia Mission along with his companion, Elder Joshua Heidbrink. Elder Heidbrink was also shot and remains hospitalized as of this writing.

Every missionary mother's nightmare just came true for the parents of Elder Young. Godspeed to him, and may the Lord watch over those who have been given cause to mourn in this new year.

UPDATE: Chesapeake Police have arrested and charged James R. Boughton with first-degee murder, malicious wounding, attempted malicious wounding and three counts of using a gun during the commission of a felony in connection with the death of Elder Young and the wounding of Elder Heidbrink.

Evidently the Elders were witnesses to a crime. Wrong place, wrong time. No word on "special circumstances" being attached to the first degree murder charge.
