Leon Creek Greenway closes at sunset and no one should be in it after that.

Question - do the gates of Leon Creek actually swing close at sunset? Anybody get trapped?

There are no gates at the greenways but one can still receive a ticket. It is a Class C misdemeanor to violate the park curfew.

Not to change the subject Merovee, but looking at your status, what is SA's original 36?

TIA

doesn't a ski mask cover the neck? and how would she see the tattoo on the neck late at night unless she happened to be directly under the lamp post. It's not okay for women to go jogging alone at night, leave that to the guys.

Some sub-standard ski masks don't cover the neck. The person'a sweater is supposed to do that.

If I were in the market for a house I would consider it as an option with its proximity to the greenway, actually. But, again, like i said in my first post running at 10 in the evening is a silly choice no matter what.
I absolutely agree. When I was in Oxbow last week I noticed that it is starting to look a lot more clean than it used to. The housing prices in Oxbow/Babcock north are great, especially compared to Tanglewood. Ironically, Tanglewood seems to be getting a bad wrap too. I had about 4 clients last year tell me that they want to avoid tanglewood at all costs. I am not sure why though..

There are a few streets that are just a bit seedy with some not great families. Just like Oxbow it is pocket-y. There have been quite a few foreclosures in the last few years and many of the homes are home to renters. Some are fabulous, though. It also backs up to the industrial park that is across from Wal-Mart. It gets very noisy at times with just noise, there's no way to describe it. I am not sure how it compared to Oxbow in foreclosures, but I see a new one at least once every 6 months. In addition the kids go to Boone, whereas the Oxbow kids go to Carnahaan, which is brand new. I feel like Oxbow may even go to Stinson and Brandeis whereas Tanglewood goes to Rawlinson and Clark. But I could be wrong about that.

But that's completely off topic, Tanglewood is very close to the scene in question and again, I would never be there after about 7:45 in the summer and even 5:45 in the winter.

hittin the sauce? i find it hard to believe people are defending her time to go out running. yes she is not 100% at fault, but some part of the fault DOES lie with her, as she made the decision to run, ALONE, after dark. crime happens EVERYWHERE!

WRONG.

running after dark ALWAYS carries risks, no matter what neighborhood you live in! victim may not be 100% to blame, but some of the blame DOES fall down on her since she made the decision to jog after dark, a time when attacks are far more likely to occur.


ps - the amount of white knighting in this thread... LOL!

KM1174, you can't be serious. With your logic, women in short skirts are to blame for being raped. This was a criminal act perpetrated on an innocent person. Her choice of when to go for a jog will never be on trial.
