SUWANEE NEWS WEEK: Funeral for Prince Family, a Bath Salts Victim, and ...

A look back at some recent news stories from Suwanee and Gwinnett.

Taking a rewind ...

The story that has dominated the news recently in the area came to something of a conclusion. Hundreds of mourners came to Suwanee last week to pay last respects to Griffin Prince, 13, and Jake Prince, 9. The brothers from Buford were killed June 18 in a boating collision on Lake Lanier, and a Johns Creek business owner has been charged with boating under the influence in connection with the attack. "Families can be together forever," Gary Hansen, the boys' grandfather, said at the service.
