Trying to explain the unexplainable

For the second time in a matter of weeks, southeastern Pennsylvania - specifically the Philadelphia suburbs - has found itself in the national headlines, and not for a reason anyone would want.

We join with the families of Bianca Roberson and those four young men in Bucks County in asking a simple question: Why?

There have now been arrests in both cases.

Getting answers, and making sense of either case, likely will take a little longer.
