Man Arrested In Murder Of Pregnant Soldier

My local paper, The Fayetteveille Observer, reported that a man has been arrested in the Megan Lynn Touma murder. The suspect is Sgt. Edgar Patino Lopez who was training at Ft. Bragg in psychological operations tactics at the Special Operations Command school. Touma discovered that Patino was married shortly after she realized that she was carrying his child.

I don't think that any event could compensate the Touma family for the death of two of their members, Megan and her unborn child. But perhaps, knowing that the police might possibly have their loved one's killer will give them some small comfort.

We should remember the Touma family in our prayers so that they continue to have strength to endure this tragedy.

He found out she was married right after she found out she was pregnant with his child.

There is so much wrong there.

But to snuff out two lives--there was never love there.
