Detectives identified the victims as Brittany Howard, 23; her boyfriend, Ivison Washington, 27; and her brother, Brandon Wright, 27.

No mystery. Lawndale is a dump. It's the kind of thing that happens there.

Peter, Lawndale is a beautiful city.

Hey Peter, so is Brentwood, I heard two people were stabbed to death a few years back.

Oh great... You go to bed, and wake up the next morning and learn that there was someone killed. EVERY NIGHT! I can't even keep up with all the people killed in only a month! What should you do, go to Siberia where no one can hurt you? Why would you kill anyone for no reason?
