2. Police found a woman's body in a tub full of acid and believe she was killed before her body was put in the acid.

4. Jason Hart was an Iraq War Veteran and his wife said he not only suffered from substance abuse but PTSD as well.

It is important to note that Jason Hart suffered from PTSD. PTSD affects many war veterans and those who have lived through a traumatic event. The effects of PTSD can be detrimental if gone untreated. However, PTSD is treatable and it is so important to get help if you believe you or a loved one are experiencing symptoms of PTSD.
