It's strange to me that the Pas. Patch keeps reporting the location as near Colorado and Holly, since those two streets are parallel. It would actually benefit the public more to know the actual location.

The article does mention that she was taken to Legge Alley, which is the alley between Raymond and Arroyo Pkwy just north of Union.
