April was a violent, tragic, eventful month in Essex, with car crash deaths, a bar shooting, a barricade situation, a finding of human skeletal remains and a big brush fire all occurring within the month.
All of those events made the Top 10 stories of the month on Essex-Middle River Patch, as determined by the number of readers for each.
The only "soft" story to crack the Top 10 list was a listing of jobs available in the area, and that claimed the No. 10 spot.
