Tomorrow it will be two years since the tragedy took place that will forever change how ROCORI High School is perceived in the eyes of the world. Three young men lost their lives that day, two died and one was sentanced to life in prison.
There was a fire at the Randy Libbesmeier home this past Monday evening at 5 pm. The fire began in the garage when a car started burning. Rockville Fire Chief Randy Dingman reported that no one was injured but the damage sustained by the house was enough that it could no longer be inhabited until repairs were made.
