- The homicide occurred in my single member district and my constituents are understandably frightened, concerned and disheartened. We appreciate law enforcement efforts; we know you don't want any homicides either. We need information to assist in our efforts to process this event and determine our next steps. Staying inside indefinitely is not s viable option.Commissioner Kathy Henderson, 5D05
