Editors note: RS fan Crystal Ross said the RPD information is wrong. But failed to provide any details. She says there is more to the story than what the police have said, but will not say anything else.
She said it is RS job to find the details out, instead of her telling us. We responded, we can only run with the information that is provided to us and gave her a chance to tell the other side of the story, and she has yet to respond.
So we can only run with the information from the RPD at this time. If she chooses to tell us, or if someone else gives us information, we will be more than happy to update this.
