  1. As her daughter’s classmate, I’m heartbroken. Many of her friends at school cried today, many are distraught. Such a sad story. Fly high, Melissa.

  2. This is sad. I watch Judge Jeffery Middletons’ court stream via YouTube at home here in Queensland, Australia. He done a special post to advise of Melissa Hallacks’ death which lead me here to find out more.
    My thoughts are with her 2 young daughters, family, friends, and all St Josephs County work mates.
    R.I.P Melissa Hallack.
