I know many are still saddened at the passing of local KFDX reporter Shatanya Clarke. It looks like Shatanya got some national attention this week on Inside Edition.

It was one week ago today that we found out that Shatanya Clarke passed away. For me, it was right around 3 PM last week when I got the news. In case you do not know, KFDX is our television partner.
