The 30000 block of Power Plant Rd in Dagsboro must be cursed. This is the exact same area where Matthew Burton accused murderer of Nicole Bennett lived before being charged and arrested in connection with her murder.

51? Looks like she's been a drug addict for decades.

I read a comment from a relative of hers on another site, and she is a drug addict and a heavy smoker. It shows.
