No new lights for killing site on Ore. bike path



ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) — There will be no new streetlights installed on the bike path in Ashland where a young grocery clerk was nearly decapitated last fall.

The Ashland Daily Tidings reported ( that the City Council has agreed to go along with recommendations from the police chief and city staff that the lighting could actually be counterproductive, giving people a false sense of safety, and was likely to draw complaints about light pollution from neighbors.

The council did agree to move forward on building a memorial bench and light in honor of David Grubbs, who was killed in November walking home from work along the path as darkness fell.

Nobody has been arrested.
