Sciotopost wants to report that we did make a error in reporting that sister was killed in a car, as that information was told to us by police but it was misheard from “car” from “bar” we are sorry we made this mistake. Our reporters have been reporting since 2 am on this incident and we made a mistake. We strive to make things correct and only report on facts, we have made a mistake and fixed it.
