#LisaIrwin : Valhall On Alina Fitzpatrick - Who Killed Alina ?

In recent weeks there has been the unfortunate trend of young girls being found dead in the Oklahoma City metro area.  First there was Carina Saunders, 19, found dismembered and stuffed in a duffle bag, left to be found in a field immediately behind a grocery store in northwest Oklahoma City/Bethany.  Then there was Kelsey Bransby, 19, from the same Mustang High School class as Carina found shot to death in her apartment in southern Oklahoma City.  And now 17-year-old Alina Fitzpatrick, her nude body found by a property owner in far rural northeast Oklahoma City.  Under no circumstances am I attempting to link Alina’s murder to the other two recent murders.  In fact, it’s the differences in Alina’s case that concern me.

Alina was 17 years old and being home schooled because, according to her parents, of a bullying problem at her former school, Putnam City North High School.  Alina’s parents had chosen to try homeschooling when the new year school began due to these problems and enrolled her in the Putnam City Virtual internet school to teach her from home.  Administrators at Putnam City North stated they had no knowledge of a reported bullying problem in connection with Alina.  I’d like to state that 1.) that darned sure doesn’t mean there wasn’t one, and 2.) it darned sure wouldn’t surprise me that they would be clueless if there was more
