Invasion strikes Linville home

The teenage grandson was taken outside and the men later came back inside and said they had killed him, demanding money and valuables.
The boy was later brought back inside and tied up along with the male occupant. The female resident has a medical condition and was not restrained, Buckley said.
The suspects stayed in the house for about an hour, leaving on foot with jewelry, weapons, computers and cash.

Alexander speaks up about fuel, forestry
