A weight, a huge weight has been lifted from their families' shoulders. Now, another huge, huge weight has been placed on the murdered girl's family in the form of horrible doubts and disbelief. What, can anybody tell me, were the involved up to that fateful night? Sounds hollywoodian, but it is real life.
Parents are usually left in the hands of destiny when they send their children abroad to study. Or quite frankly, even in their own backyards their worst nightmares rear their ugly heads.
Parents have the best of intentions and they never expect that they children are or will be party to horrible acts, such as crime and murder. We people who have had young people under our guidance know very well the challenges involved in laying down the law and explaining to recalcitrant children that course of action A is better than course of action B. Sometimes, we do lift up our hands and say: "we give up". Understandable.
Surely, we know, children do have to fly away from the family nest and build lives of their own. Sometimes we are relieved, sometimes we have a huge weight in our hearts. We do not know what is going to happen down the road, or up in the skies.
Surely bad luck has befallen the families involved in this huge abnormality for, it is evident, they have been through hell. We cringe at the thought of ever having to go through such a horrific experience...
Shakespeare wrote, "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio / Than are dreamt of in your philosophy". (Hamlet, Act 1: Sc. 5 line 166 - 167)
That explains the mystery before us, especially now that they are "back to square one", quoting one the murdered victim's family members. Or does it?
