Stephan Pool was an honorable man, a veteran who served this nation on numerous fronts, loved by family, friends and loved-ones. Intelligent, always helping others, a human being that made this world a better place. This was a senseless, brutal murder, randomly violent and in all ways tragic. I write to provide the human tragedy involved. Stephan was more than a number or random name to be vaguely cited. I hope readers that believe in God will pray for the family's comfort in this most horrible disregard for a valued, treasured life.
