Being a skeptic, I googled "David Woods Gloucester City" and came up with nothing, then checked http://www.philly.com/philly/news/ and saw "Woman's ashes stolen during burglary" and "Temple student 'grazed' by bullet" headlining their News. It seems odd that a headline like "Hammer Wielding Maniac Running Amok In The City" wouldn't make the front page of a rag like the Philadelphia Daily News. Speedy recovery to Mr. Woods and "justice" to those involved in this.
