Real tales drive story
Today's top story is a simple one, a home invasion and robbery of an Oxford woman.
The story is efficiently told by Carol Hopkins, who took a call from a reader who wanted share her experience as a crime victim. She and a friend were robbed by three men, one of whom pointed a gun at her and the friend. They took off with $2,000, plus a phone and computer.
Gone was the feeling of safety and security.
Gone was the rent money.
Most often, these stories come straight from the police without the specifics and details from the victim.
Today's story has been read nearly three times more than the second-ranked story, showing that readers are attracted to such reports.
I look forward to the follow up on an arrest and later convictions.
