Man stabbed to death after breaking into home

A man is stabbed to death after breaking into someone's home.

State police say Edward Crowley forced his way into the home on Keith Whitley Boulevard in Sandy Hook early Sunday morning. The homeowner, Jamie Dillon, then stabbed Crowley when the two got into a fight.

Police did not charge Dillon and say it appears he acted in self defense. The case will be presented to a grand jury.

    Doing drugs is an early trip to the cemetery. But to enter another persons home is very dangerous for all involved, only for a few $$ for more drugs. My thoughts on this , "We need more Mr. Dillons"

    I hope this homeowner will be okay. There should not even be a grand jury, this man was protecting himself from a criminal who broke into his home. Just more waste of taxpayer's money to have a grand jury look into what this brave man did. It's time we all stand up and protect what we have worked for from this druggies! If the so called law wants to do anything, then get these drug heads off the street and/or stop them from stealing the rest of us blind!

    Hate to say it, but after the first of the New Year, we are going to be reading a lot more stories just like this one, once the criminals are released early "to save the state money" !!!!! Sad but True.

    There is more to the story than what is being reported.

    Good for him. Maybe that will detour others from trying to break in innocent people's houses. If someone try to break in on me I wouldn't hesitate to shoot them.

    While the sad thing is it is not going to get any better. But I'm glad the story didn't read..."Suspect sought for breaking in and murdering man while he slept.. if anyone has any leads.. please call the local police dept". Instead the perpetrator weighed the risk and LOST!

    Got what he deserved, man what has this country come to. I can remember when you could go to sleep with the doors unlocked. These days people have to do what they can to protect their families.

    Good job Mr. Dillon. No jail fees, cost of food in jail, court costs. Wham bam, thank you man. One less junkie to worry about.

    I am not condoning the intruder's actions. I am just saying that he was a human being who had a family that loved him regardless of his criminal behavior, and I feel sorry for them.

      In this COUNTRY we live in, you have the right to defend yourself. I am a Female Army Veteran & live along with my dogs, & if someone tried to break in on me, I wouldn't hesitate for a second to shoot them. Would I want to? No But he should have thought about his family before doing it. Have you thought about the man's house he broke into? He could have been killed, then his family would have been mourning? Just like last wk when 2 gun carrying thugs tried to break into a man's home, armed & the man finally got the gun away from them & he beat them with a boat paddle & they ran. Maybe this will teach people not to try & break in & rob someone. I'm glad people are standing up for themselves. About time.
