Chase Recap:


I started this morning out after waking up around 645am. The first thing I saw on my phone that morning was that Chris Cornell had passed away. As we’d later find out, he took his own life in Detroit at the MGM Grand Casino hotel. I also woke up to a High Risk having been issued for Northwest Oklahoma.
