  1. Perhaps Shakespeare said it best:
    “All’s well that ends well”.
    Families of his victims get closure, the state is spared the expense of a conviction, an appeal and an execution. And the subject took his life in the manor he stole others.
    Great work by the Gilbert police in keeping us safe from further harm.
