    This year’s top story even managed to draw national attention, bringing news media from Australia. Chris Lane, 22, an Australian native, was shot and killed Aug. 16, while he was out for a run near Country Club Road and Twilight Beach.
    In the days following, three teenage Duncan boys were arrested for Lane’s murder. Initially, Chancey Allen Luna, 16, and James Francis Edwards Jr., 16, were charged as adults, facing first-degree murder, and a third teen Michael Dewayne Jones was charged as a youthful offender to accessory to murder. In November, Jones, 17, was recharged as an adult facing first-degree murder.
