    I love how there’s no comments on how guy deserved it, or how it was possibly over drugs, or a hate filled comment about the guess race. I know that’s all going to change once the racist idiots find out the skin tone of this guy. R.I.P., and may your family grieve in peace.

      Want me to let you in on the secret to avoid the racial comments about “thugs”? Wait for it. Here it comes. If black people didn’t continue to perpetuate the stereo type, by you know, doing stereotypical things, there would be no black criminals for the morons to make fun of with their racially charged comments.

      It continues to be obvious that the black community doesn’t want to straighten themselves out, they just want white people to stop noticing. Like the marijuana stuff. The black community cant stop smoking pot, dealing pot, etc, so their solution is to make it legal… Sad.

        Really, do you know any black people at all? Because if you did you would know that most black people aren’t doing those things that you just said. They are hard working folks just like everyone else! And do you think that other races don’t deal/smoke pot? No disrespect but get to know some black people before you help perpetuate the stereotype!

      No comments except yours bringing up race. Well done.

    • cheywolf on August 8, 2017 at 8:32 am

      Probably because it was a suicide. I just love how you made the racist and drug comment first… Too funny. Instead of being a bully and a real tough keyboard warrior why don’t you try and show compassion, it doesn’t hurt or cost you a single thing…

    • Ben Matlock on August 8, 2017 at 8:48 am

      Where to begin with this one? Funny how no one can comment on a CRIMINAL who happens to be a person of color without being labeled a racist. Are there no black racists out there?

    • STFU on August 8, 2017 at 9:20 am

      Could just as easily be a Suicide. There are not enough facts released to know anything. But since you can’t wait to be a “race victim” to play the race card, I am sure there is plenty of other incidents that you read about.

      Making that statement was unnecessary!

    • ANONYMOUS on August 8, 2017 at 11:14 am

      Shutup you pos, you’re the only one bringing that up dumba$$..get a life.

    • Bob Lob Law on August 8, 2017 at 5:02 pm

      You weren’t satisfied that this wasn’t becoming a cluster, so you took it upon yourself to steer it in that direction. Got it.

    Thugs and drugs would be my guess. They’ve infested this county long enough and unfortunately, they continue to do so.

    • Anonymous on August 7, 2017 at 11:11 pm

      That’s right, because you are another one of those uneducated idiots that make a statement before you know the facts!

    • friend on August 8, 2017 at 5:44 am

      Sadly this was a case of suicide. All the internet trolls please keep your comments to yourself and let this family heal.

    • cheywolf on August 8, 2017 at 8:32 am

      Suicide……

    • someone who knows on August 8, 2017 at 9:56 am

      This was a wonderful man and it had absolutely nothing to do with drugs. Let his family grieve in peace.

    • STEVE on August 8, 2017 at 10:32 am

      Who or what do you mean by “they”?

  3. Sally on August 7, 2017 at 10:56 pm

    Your guess is so wrong. Try not guessing about the death of someone.

  4. Anonymous on August 7, 2017 at 11:07 pm

    yes you would say thugs and drugs since you are yet another uneducated idiot that makes comments before you know the facts!

    • GetBack on August 9, 2017 at 9:37 am

      Oh No! “Uneducated” again!

      We have to stop letting those types participate.

      Only PHD, MBA, BS, or BA comments from now on. WE MEAN IT!

      NO ASSOCIATES EITHER! (Damn wanna-bes).

    If the guy committed suicide, they would have made that known. If the guy was murdered, they would have made that known. Since we don’t know anything about the circumstances, would seem pretty obvious that we are dealing with another over dose situation. And then we will be flooded with the “its a disease” crowd telling us how it wasn’t his fault he took the drugs. Obviously someone forced him to use, blah blah blah…

    • friend on August 8, 2017 at 1:54 pm

      This WAS a suicide and no they don’t owe you that information. It was only a”death investigation” as standard procedure in a hand gun death. Please stop all the comments to the contrary and let this family grieve the loss of their husband, father, son, and friend.

      • Ricky on August 9, 2017 at 4:44 pm

        But it doesn’t make him a thug, or on drugs. Try again, but please try faster, before you melt….

      • DeAngelo on August 9, 2017 at 4:46 pm

        OK, like we didn’t figure that out from jump. How about you just STFU and let us grown ups “talk”!

    • Anonymous on August 8, 2017 at 3:17 pm

      Um, did you read the article? It says he was suffering from a gunshot wound. Do you think the bullet was laced with fentanyl?

    Suicide?

    • Bob Lob Law on August 8, 2017 at 5:03 pm

      Keep guessing.

      • Anonymous on August 9, 2017 at 11:40 am

        It was suicide you dork troll.

        • Bob Lob Law on August 10, 2017 at 3:16 pm

          Link to police saying it was suicide? That’s what I thought.

      • Anonymous on August 9, 2017 at 12:30 pm

        Why?

      • Bob Lob Law on August 9, 2017 at 12:53 pm

        I apologize I was wrong as usual.

        • Bob Lob Law on August 10, 2017 at 7:46 am

          Just kidding. I’m always right and y’all know it.

          • Bob Lob Law on August 11, 2017 at 6:34 pm

            LOL

    It is sad that all these assumptions are being made without knowledge of the facts. Does the thought of the pain you are inflicting on the family who may read this ever cross your minds? The children who may read this???

    Please do not assume your opinion matters and that you need to be heard. A family is grieving and in unspeakable pain. Offer condolences if you feel the need to post something.

    This is sad, another person has their live erased, regardless of the circumstances. I hope people start to be kinder to each other. It should not be scary to go to State Parks or anywhere outside of your home to enjoy your life without worry.

    • GetBack on August 9, 2017 at 9:39 am

      Yeah – you’re right. It’s all going to get better and better from this point forward.

      Thanks so much!

    • Anonymous on August 9, 2017 at 11:38 am

      Why would someone go to a public place like that to off themselves? Seems weird, and kinda selfish to not just his family, but the general public that had to find him and see that traumatic scene. Hope no kids witnessed that.

  9. Donna on August 9, 2017 at 2:39 pm

    Please stop it this man committed suicide and he has a grieving family and children. Stop and think for a moment what was so awful in this man’s life to do this to himself. Sometimes the strongest among us are the ones who smile through silent pain and fight battles nobody knows about. Stop the hate, people are people it doesn’t matter what color they are.

  10. Anonymous on August 9, 2017 at 5:46 pm

    I wish I knew you were struggling. I know the journey of hitting rock bottom of crying out for help. I could have told you about my triumphs, new treatments that gave me my life back. The joys of feeling hopeful again and the amazing future that has resulted. Help is always just around the corner. It’s just unclear which corner you need to explore. I’m going to miss you although it’s been years since we last fished and smoked the rockfish. I will never forget you and the good times. Find peace, and to the family. I can’t imagine. Be angry, be sad, depressed, let it all out, and some day there will be healing. I hope you are wetting a line on the other side. Get Some!!

    • Donna on August 10, 2017 at 6:39 am

      Well said very very sad.

    • someone who knows on August 11, 2017 at 4:56 pm

      Thank you for your kind words and for being his friend. We all wish we would have known he was struggling. He was an incredible human who will be missed more than words can say.

  11. William on August 9, 2017 at 8:17 pm

    Someone has died, some of you peoples comments shows how dumb you are. We are all neighbors with family or friends this can happen to. I bet something happened to someone in your family, you would feel bad to read comments like some of these. SMNEWSNET should require a first and last name for you to comment.

  12. Anonymous on August 10, 2017 at 7:15 am

    To all those who have left words of comfort, love and sympathy, thank you. Know that we are listening to everything you have to say and that your support means so much to us. Throughout his life he developed an incredible network of amazing friends, and we know that he loved and cared for each and every one of you as if you were family.

    To those who speculate or argue, that’s ok. There’s no way you could’ve understood the situation or what happened from what was written here. We wish you all the best in what you do but hope that you may act with a little more kindness in the future.

    If there is a funeral or someplace to make donations in honor please let us know. I feel like he would tell me to check Tidalfish where the good bite was happening so I could catch some fish in his honor. If this is acceptable I can provide to the family. He would be laughing his ass off if I told him about the BS we went through at Chincoteague Island trying to get out to the canyons. I can hear his laugh!! God Bless!
