    An article about the very sad, drug-related death of a woman and the cold, heartless treatment she received after her death by two cold, heartless people.

    Why did they chose Purgatory Road ? I don't think they were practicing Catholics.

    In Catholic theology, purgatory (Latin: Purgatorium, via Anglo-Norman and Old French) is an intermediate state after physical death in which some of those ultimately destined for heaven must first "undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven," holding that "certain offenses can be forgiven in this age, but certain others in the age to come." …Wikipedia

    Rt. 70 is a straight shot from Camden to Purgatory Rd. It starts getting "woodsy" in that area, so they probably turned off into the first likely looking area. Bad intentioned people seem to head into the woods to do bad things. As a father I cannot imagine getting the news about a relatively young daughter who lost her battle with drugs. Very sad.
