Just got home from work (I live in FH) and found out there was a mexican murdered here last night in a very nice subdivision--Copperwynd.

Does anyone know anything? I moved here for the safety for my family. This is scary stuff.

Well the news say he was found dead in a parking lot of a business in FH.

It usually means he worked there and brought his problems with him. So it would likely not be a random murder (meaning that the perpetrator did not know the victim before).

I can tell you there were two woman murdered in FH within the past year. One thinks it's safe, but are there anymore safe places left?

Exactly, you can live in the richest and most upscale community out there and the chance of crime still exists. Sure, it may be more rare than other places, but this stuff can happen anywhere sadly.

My prayers are with this person's family during a tragic time.

People get murdered sometimes. Unfortunate.

You must ask yourself - are you a drug dealer? gang member? smuggle people? have a violent spouse? If you answer no to all of those, relax, turn out the lights, go to bed. It doesn't matter where you live, you will most assuredly die of something else besides murder. Focus on the real risks - wear your seatbelt.

Excellent post and advice, Ponderosa!

All too often there seems to be a direct link between DRUGS and MURDER.

yes, I know that, but for it to be brought here is a shock. I do not live in an upscale neighborhood, am not rich. But I pretty much stay out of Phoenix, Mesa, etc when it gets dark for fear of drive by shootings, etc. The two women they found dead here last year, no one has ever said truly what it was. Murder? Suicide? No one has ever said. Yes, I know that this person brought his problems here, but what a scarey world we live in.

Man people in Phoenix live in fear like the murder rate is at 50%.. it's at around 0.0075% chance you'll be murdered.
