Default sad day for desi students

Had this not be desi non-immigrant students, this would have made headline on CNN front page and everywhere else.

Default Hard to digest this!

Read this item related to this incident from here

"Police actually think it was a straight home invasion and not a concern to the rest of the campus," said Kristine Calongne, a university spokeswoman.

Having been a student, its hard to digest that some one would try to rob a student - a desi @ home. Most desi students cant even afford decent furniture.

This is an extremely shocking news for the entire Indian community within US. Its painful to comprehend the loss of such valuable intellectuals who were on the path of pursuing a Phd from a good university. Such premature loss of intellectual capital is heart-breaking. Make the Lord give their family members courage and strength to deal with the loss. Our prayers are with the families.

I am not surprised that this has not made front-page news. The main-stream media is more interested in what Paris Hilton or Britney Spears wear or don't wear rather than focusing on important news items.

I suspect if it is a petty case of robbery. Why would a thug want to kill 2 research students? It would be nice if IV could extend some condolences and find out if we can be of any help to their family members in getting the inevitable arrangements made.

Unhappy Very sad

Campus apartments are typically not targets for home invasion, since students hardly have any valuables. I would not be surprised if this turns out to be a hate crime

Very Sad. My condolences to the family of those two students
and hope to have justice.

Definitely not a robbery.....

No forced entry and shots at the head clearly indicates a premeditated murder....

I hope their families find strength and courage in these tragic times....
