    Interested to see what the Police have to say. I can’t recall a serious traffic accident, crime scene or major incident being blocked off to the public for such a long period of time.

    police are lying

    • Dianne says:

      Why would they lie?? They held the scene until a forensic pathologist arrived here so that he/she could examine the scene before the autopsy is performed. They were not sure if it was an accident or not.. Its the forensic EXPERT who made the determination and it was the forensic EXPERT who informed the young mans family of his findings. The kid was a few seconds from home leaving a party at Ocean View Golf Course.. So I guess the Expert is lying too?? If this was foul play, then all of you people speculating need to cough up what you know.. Cause you all seem to know everything.
