    Whatโ€™s sad about news stations is they make stories without all the evidence. Find all your evidence before you make a video. Youโ€™re making the situation worse.

    This is just sad and devastating how this man name is been dragged all over the media without anyone providing any facts to the allegation. Now he's dead and they automatically ruled it as suicide. It needs a thorough investigation

    Evidentally that black bastard committed rape on a little 12yr. old girl since he was found swinging by a neuse…from a tree . Good riddens !!! He deserved to be whipped with a bull whip to his back by that child's father to the point of death .

    What's needed now is persons with information to come forward and whatever information the family has which may differs from the media's account they should share it. I find it hard to believe that he would do what they're accusing him of. He's dead but his name needs to be cleared

    One of two things. Either he did it and then did himself in to escape justice or he was set up and did himself in because his career and reputation were already permanently destroyed. Something just doesnt jive about this whole situation. Even if a person is a pervert, how many are going to be stupid enough to take a chance like that during school. Im not saying this man couldn't have been guilty, but something about this whole thing just doesn't sound right.
