Over the last four or five days, I’ve been somewhat obsessed with the story of Kara Beth Borden and David Ludwig. For anyone who hasn’t been watching the news or reading my forums, it goes something like this:
14-year-old Kara Borden was secretly dating 18-year-old David Ludwig, and the two were quite possibly having sexual relations. On Sunday, November 13th, Borden’s parents discovered that Kara had lied to them about going to a sleepover at friend’s house the previous night and had actually spent the night with Ludwig. So Michael and Catheryn Borden called Ludwig over to their Lititz, PA home sometime Sunday, presumably to tell him that he couldn’t see their daughter anymore. Ludwig apparently didn’t like this idea, because he shot and killed both of them, grabbed Kara, and sped off in his car. The two were taken into custody 28 hours later on Monday afternoon, 20 miles west of Indianapolis on Monday, after a car chase ended in a crash. Ludwig was arrested and Kara was returned to her family. David Ludwig is currently being charged with the double murder, kidnapping, and reckless endangerment. Statutory rape will inevitably be thrown on there as well. Ludwig has reportedly been very calm and cooperative since his arrest. Currently, police do not believe that Kara Borden was a willing participant in murder of her parents. She is said to be in a total state of shock, confusion, and horror.
So, as you can see, the whole thing is pretty horrible. Unfortunately, that didn’t stop me from making a totally inappropriate comic about the situation. Sorry, I can’t help it.
