    10:46: police still not letting anyone into the area… no sleep tonight it may seem as I wait in my car for police to unblock access.

      Yes, sounds like they’re restricting access for a while as they continue investigating… but maybe not too long; they’ve just given the OK to reopen Delridge/Webster.

Sorry, comment time is over.
