I live just down the block from this "meth-house". There was no one killed. The guy was "tweaking" and was completely alone. He initially told police he was in the shower and was frightened by a spider in his shower so he ran out of the house in a panic.

Matt, I live in the complex where the Swan Incident happen, I am still all shook up. and sadden for that man and the people that loved him..First of all its nothing to speak about casually or funny, Know your facts why that horrific incident happen to that unfortunate young man. He left behind people that loved him....FYI Animals are only violent if they are threatened or if they are trained my man to be that way. Besides, the Bible in Eccelesiastes 9-11 tells us that Time and Unforseen Circumstances Befalls All Of Us, So lets be careful what we say casually about someting bad that happens to someone else..Marigold
