David Grubbs memorial

Less than three weeks ago, Ashland experienced a shock that still weighs heavy on the minds of all the citizens. David Michael Grubbs was murdered for no apparent reason. His killer remains at large.

David Grubbs memorial on Ashland Bike Path

I visited the site of the crime yesterday morning for the first time since the murder happened. When the temperature is above 50 degrees I ride the Ashland Bike Path three times a week, but I haven’t done so, due to the cold, since late October. I expected the murder to have taken place in a more hidden and remote section of the path. Actually, the location is right next to the parking lot behind the tennis courts. The murderer could have jumped in their car immediately after the act.

A memorial has been created on the spot of his death. People have dropped off photos, cards, and other artifacts from his life. Others have written things on the bike path itself. I didn’t know David, personally, but I shop frequently where he worked (Ashland’s Shop’n Kart) so I recognized him immediately when I saw his photo on the news. I’m sure he helped me several times at the store over the years.

May justice and karma be served (and soon).
