MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — A small property management company in North Dakota where four people were slain in the early morning hours of April 1 is slowly returning to normal thanks to tight bonds among workers and community support.
Memories of the "coffee club" help too. RJR Maintenance and Management co-owner Jackie Fakler says the four victims at the Mandan business would get to work early just so they could sit with mugs in hand and chat.
Fakler's husband, Robert, was among those killed, as well as married workers Bill and Lois Cobb, and Adam Fuehrer. An RJR renter from Washburn is charged with killing them, but a motive isn't known.
Fakler says: "This is not something you just bounce back from."
