Last night, for the third night in a row, hundreds joined Gray’s family on the scene of the crime and protested. There were several arrests, and summons given for disorderly conduct, the victims sister was one of them. More on KiKis Story

Neighbors say they heard the woman arguing with her spouse a few hours before the incident, and were under the assumption they were a “happy couple.” The victim’s husband was no where to be found on Wednesday evening, and police believe he left the apartment before his wife jumped. More
