Crime continues to increase unabated in blue states, with increasingly tragic results for innocent victims. In Colorado, a series of fatal games by soulless subhumans left one young woman dead and several others injured after they threw landscaping rocks at moving cars.
The deceased woman was apparently struck by one of the rocks as it smashed through her windshield. Alexa Bartell was driving alone around 10:45 pm and talking on the phone with her friend when she suddenly became silent.
Her car was found shortly after by her friend who used locating services. Bartell’s lifeless body was inside.
“Her friend was worried, so her friend used an app to track her phone, drove to the location where it looked like Alexa’s phone was just sitting … still,” the Public Information Officer for Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, Jacki Kelley, said to FOX21 Colorado Springs. “She discovered that Alexa’s car had gone off the road on Indiana into a field. And then she discovered her body inside.”
Kelly made a passionate and well-meaning plea to the larger public, saying:
“These are not games. These are people’s lives, and what happened last night should never have happened. We don’t know who these suspects are, why they’re trying to do this, but they killed somebody last night, and we want to know who they are.”
Of course, the public is not who needs this message. It is the criminal elements that care not for human life nor be inclined to heed the message anyways.
Speaking to FOX31 Denver, one of Bartell’s former high school friends recalled how she had “really left a mark on people.”
“It just doesn’t feel real,” Emily Audette said. “She was always just someone you could go to about anything, someone you could always talk to. She was just friends with everybody and made everybody laugh.”
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office released an update to Bartell’s tragic story as well as a timeline for other related events. In all, the department identified at least five separate incidents within the span of less than an hour in which rocks were hurled toward moving vehicles.
