I think the police should look into a connection to this local gang of burglars that were caught last Thursday in a STRING of local crimes. They were brandishing a large flashlight and a golf club, which might indicate a readiness for physical punishment, and might indicate a connection or a familiarity to the country club grounds. Where did the club come from? Was it perhaps obtained or used during the murders?
