Ya know Detroit, you really need to get a job or something. You have been putting the same stuff up here for at least 2-3 weeks now. It is the SAME STUFF! What do you want us to do about it? We are NOT the police because if we were WE would be getting something done! You have a lot of theories but we are the wrong people to tell them to! FIND SOMEBODY TO LISTEN TO YOU THAT WILL FINALLY BE ABLE TO DO SOMETHING OR JUST SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!

could it be that it WAS an accident and there is nothing to investigate??? The kid was drunk maybe he just did something stupid, like drunk people usually do and fell into the river. why is everyone trying to make josh into some poor murder victim??? maybe it was just a terrible accident.

Really now !!!! Uhmmmmmmmmmm !! something too think about Misses , Josh was only four blocks from his car , why would he walk nine blocks the oppisite direction , someone offer him a ride , why would he walk to the Hudson River , drunk nah !!! I don't think so , he trusted someone ,That person clock him ,follow him, waited until he (Josh )was away from anyone , A Stalker , at it's beat , a skill killer may-be more then one person , But let me tell you this everything comes to a end in time , the FBI is on this , They will be caught !!!!!!!!!! Josh rest in peace baby , A good guy , in all his picture he's smiling , Now we look for a smiley face !!!!!

Things are starting to happen. The cops are taking the gloves that Gary gave my brother with the blood on them. By posting the names others across the U.S.(thanks to TN) have helped me link some of the names and provided names that I didn`t have. The list has increased by 25%. People call me names and yell at me and accuse me of being the killer but I`m doing what I can to get the word out,anyway. I have to post it somewhere for it to be seen. By getting the names out more people will be convinced and complain to the police and they`ll see the reality of what`s happening because the police and FBI in MICH will do nothing.

Wow! Do I really need to say this again or can you just go back and read the other blogs on this site. I knew Josh personally. He was a good kid. Yes, he went out drinking that night to celebrate his friend's 21st birthday. The toxicology reports came back last week and said the Josh's BAC level was .126 which makes someone 155 lbs. legally drunk to drive. OK....Josh weighed 225 lbs. He probably didn't even have a buzz at that point. That is like 4-5 beers. As Honey said he was traced back to Lincoln Park where his scent DISAPPEARED. He was going in the opposite direction of the river...back to his car. So, as I said the scent disappeared, did he fly down to the river? No, our belief is that somebody "helped" him get to the river in some way. There were no marks on him to show a struggle but someone could have still done something that didn't leave any trace. If it was this "smiley face" thing which I am not totally convinced about then those killers know what the are doing and know NOT to leave any marks.
WE (his family and friends), who knew Josh best know that he was murdered. He wasn't some poor drunk who fell into the water. That is extremely disrespectful of you to assume that. You didn't even know him, because if you did, you would not have said such a thing about him. Not knowing Josh Szostak was your loss, he was a wonderful young man who did not deserve what he got that night.

Brian Blackwell initial report May 12, 2007 on the Midwest drownings/smiley face investigations
Commonalities:
1. Victims were academically astute, athletic, each victim nearly had the same physical build.
2. Were last seen out drinking with friends or at a party.
3. Were under the influence of alcohol.
4. Oddly became separated from friends.
5. Disappeared between the hours of 10 p.m. and 4 a.m.
6. Went missing in September to December and February to April.
7. Drownings occurred along the I-90 and I-94 corridors, two vital links that connect Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois/Iowa border, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Northeast U.S.
8. Were given an accidental or undetermined cause of death.
9. Smiley face symbol found at at least 12 drownings. Smiley faces have been found at drownings in Wisconsin, Illinois/Iowa, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Note: Because many of the cases are old, smiley face graffiti could have easily washed away at the other drowning sites.
The common area that the deaths took place in and the strange circumstances surrounding the victims' disappearances make the drownings suspicious.
Statistics and factors:
- Males make up 80% of drowning victims in the U.S.
- 15-to-24-year-olds have one of the highest drowning rates
- No pre-death trauma to the bodies
- Drinking greatly increases the odds of drowning
- On average, nine accidental drownings occur in the U.S. everyday
- Since the victims were in college towns in the Midwest, they easily fit the profile of young, high-achieving, physically fit, Caucasian males. And since college students are known for their binge drinking, it makes sense that they were drinking with friends between the hours of 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. during the school semester months (September through April)
Suspicions
When you look deeper into the cases, suspicions arise.
Why have so many drownings occurred in the Midwest? Although an average of nine people drown across the country everyday, statistically most drownings occur during the summer months when more people are swimming and usually involve boats, canoes, etc.
La Crosse, Wisconsin deaths don't add up
The riverfront area in La Crosse is clearly distinguishable from the rest of the town, and anyone drunk would have to manage their way down a cement staircase and over several feet of loose rocks before getting near the water.
If the victims had fallen down loose gravel into the water, their bodies would have displayed signs of trauma. All of the autopsies reported no signs of pre-death trauma, a factor that went into determining the deaths as accidental.
Bloodhounds found that La Crosse victim Jeff Geesy suffered trauma in several different locations and was driven from the bar where he was with friends to a bridge. According to the bloodhound handler, the dog found the blood of Geesy at different locations.
Another aspect of the La Crosse drownings that is suspicious is how Jared Dion's cap he was wearing was carefully placed on a post according to police. Police investigations determined that after getting excessively drunk with friends downtown, the victim disappeared and wandered to Riverside Park, where he accidently fell into the river and drowned.
If Dion had accidently fallen into the river as reported by police, how did his cap get placed on the post?

A Friend of Josh,

Did you say that you worked with Josh at Hannaford? Did you go to his wake and candle light vigil? From all that you say, I am thinking I was standing near you at his wake.

After reading the last few comments it has become clear that if God himself were to come down and tell you it was an accident, You would say he was on the payroll of th APD. you should change this post to the Josh memorial post. You people are NOT protecting the memory of Josh. It appears that you all hope he was murdered just so you can stand up and say "SEE WE TOLD YOU SO". You people are sick and need help you don't care about the truth you just want to live in your own little fantasy world.. you probably feel guilty for letting him leave the bar drunk.

How is it guilt for those who didn't know Josh? There are questions that have been left unanswered. Josh's family has the right to look into any possible lead that could offer answers to those questions. For those who are concerned citizens, they have every right to question the APD's decision to close a case when there are so many questions left unanswered.
