  3. Chaim Yankel….why do you doubt this was just a typical break-in? I’m not understanding why you would say something like that. He was a hardworking man who didn’t deserve this. No reports say anywhere that this may be foul play, so tell me again why wouldn’t it be a typical break-in? The ignorance!!
