    I assume this story has made national news but I wanted to share it to warn everyone to be very cautious when making these transactions and arriving with cash.

    The murdered young man was someone I knew. His wife Jamie used to work with me as a graphic designer and her mother is one of the other BodyPump instructors at my gym. She asked me to sub her class last Wednesday night but I didn't find out until later that it was her son-in-law that had been murdered over a Craigslist deal.

    Jim and Jamie have a one-year old son. I had the opportunity to meet him this summer when Jamie dropped in to say hi. I had met Jim when he was on leave from Iraq and came in to visit Jamie.

    Jamie is now a free-lance photographer and the photography community has really come together to support the family. A fund that was set up to help out the family by a fellow photographer has already exceeded its original goal of raising $10,000 and is now up to $70,000.

    This is so sad and pointless.

    This is the definition of awful. Hell isn't hot enough for some people.
