What can Brown do for you?*

Apparently there was a suicide down in my old stomping grounds.

What I find more telling, however, is this gem:

A witness called the Sheriff’s Office at about 10:31 a.m., after seeing a box truck strike the body. However, the witness did not see the actual jump and the driver of the truck did not stop.

That’s right, Northern Virginia, where a guilty conscience permeates everything you do.

* Granted, “Brown” may be a bit of a logic jump — “box truck” can mean anything. But I’d imagine it’s a delivery vehicle of some sort.

Update: Well, looks like the reference to the truck driving off was removed from the article above. WaPo still mentions it though:

At least one witness said he saw the man jump from the bridge about 10:30 a.m. into the northbound lanes more than 35 feet below, said Loudoun sheriff’s spokesman Kraig Troxell. Another witness, traveling in a southbound lane, saw the man hit the concrete roadway and then saw a white truck drive over him seconds later without stopping, Troxell said.

Ok, ok, so it wasn’t UPS…
