    I hope that we all remember that this is a police investigation, but more importantly, we must remember to respect the privacy of the young man’s family.
    Instead of sending stories through cyberspace, offer our condolences, and sympathy to the next of kin, once his name is released to the public.

        Is this really necessary? Idiots like you always have to slander people’s name. However he died a young man has passed away and family members will have to deal with this tragic loss. No need to elaborate on how this young man died it does not make it any easier. Get a life already, maybe you should take a minute to pray for your evil self. RIP YOUNG MAN, MAY YOUR FAMILY FIND COMFORT AT THIS VERY DIFFICULT TIME.

        You have no idea what is going on or how this is affecting his family and friends- do you not have the decency to keep your rumors and assumptions to yourself? We who actually know him would greatly appreciate it.
