The victim is identified as Floyd Cain, Jr, 45, of the 4200 block of Railroad Avenue in Hurlock, Maryland. His body has been transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Wilmington, Delaware for an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death.

The known suspect is identified as Brandon Milton, 33, of the 4700 block of Jones Village Road in Hurlock.

BLAME tv, Hollywood, no parents, by the time generations of children reach the age of 21, how much murder and violence have they witnessed in real life and in simulated glory via evil computer games. But that's ok American Moms and Dads, keep on force feeding murder simulations to your children. I mean look at the tv! Murder murder murder....Thou Shalt Not Kill. But let them witness it over and over and over, let them play games on your computers and sleep easy telling yourself its just a game. Perhaps the response of "my child isn't susceptible to violence " will make you feel better too. But what about his friends in school? If you have done something a thousand times on a computer, if you have witnessed an act being committed on TV or in the movies thousands of times, the day your son or daughter loses his temper, and just happens to own or have access to a weapon, will it make it a little easier for God's highest commandment to be violated? But go ahead Mom or Dad, keep on saying, it's only a game, keep on saying, its not real life, its only a movie. None of what I'm letting my children do or watch matters.

Blame the democrats for encouraging that entitlement mentality. With that mentality they think everything is free and they can get into no trouble.

Blame Obama and the Obama Administration for releasing prisoners and traitors of war, and the hatred of Law Enforcement Officers. Blame Obama for changing the laws by allowing illegal aliens to get a softer name like undocumented immigrants. Not they are law breakers and should be treated like them.

Look what Obama and the people who voted for Obama had done to this country and the law that has gone amuck. Look what Obama has done to the crime rate where it is sky rocketing and getting worse. Look at Democrats like Jake Day and Jim Ireton lying about crime going down in Salisbury.
