Murder on the Yale Campus

Today I blog at Huffington Post about the murder of Annie Le on the Yale campus. As sensational as the reporting is likely to get, the case is actually a reminder that most crimes don’t stem from the random violence we fear most. Crime hits close to home… and work.

The piece compares and contrasts Le’s murder with other high-profile crimes, such as the kidnappings of Jaycee Dugard and Elizabeth Smart and the murder of actress Adrienne Shelly.

This is my first time blogging for Huffington Post, so I hope you’ll take the time to click on the story or even post a comment in response. I don’t want them to regret making space for a law professor-slash-novelist who thinks she has something important to say. (That’s right, I’m begging for blog hits so I can continue to write for free. Nuts, I know!)
