It was Matt Tipton. 23 yrs old. His dad owned Tipton Cabinets. Please keep this family in your prayers.

You hate to ask, but it pops to mind, they need to check for a connection to Cornwell. I doubt a 23 yr old could kidnap a strong woman like Cornwell, but if he had a gun, it could account for her odd statement.
yes indeed

I knew who it was, just wasnt going to post his name, just wondered if anyone knew how it happened. Accident or self inflicted.

I knew the young man...he would never harm another person. To wonder aloud if the two items are related is silly and cruel. There are enough questions as to whether or not it was truly a suicide (I have a hard time swallowing that) or whether it was a terrible accident. Hopefully the "professionals" can unravel the truth. The family is in enough pain w/o needless and baseless observations like this one. Shame on you.

I totally agree with you. I graduated with Matt. He was so smart and so nice in school, I have not seen him since we graduated. This was such a shock to me. I hope his family is ok. We are all praying for them.

Thank you for your response. There is enough pain and ugliness in this world. I don't think we need "help" as a community by pointing out possible negatives. What this family needs is for people to step forward and give positive rememberences. They need help in dealing with this terrible tragedy. Prayers are alsays good.

I knew the person that this is about and am very upset about all of the rumors that have been going around. It is still under investigation as to whether or not it was intentionally self inflicted or an accident and all those of us that knew him and grew up with him and where with him just days before the incident and the day of are completely and totally confused to the events that occured. This is not something that any of us expected and are still praying that it was an accident or that some other information will be found. He was not the type of person to hurt anyone else and allegations of that nature upset me even more. Read the paper, you will see that even the officers have not said suicide just yet, accidents happen every day and until they say for sure without a doubt that this was a suicide those of us that knew and loved him will keep hoping otherwise in our hearts for the sake of our feelings on the matter. Such speculations like this is why it is taking so long to fine Cornwell and why the leads are taking officials in different directions and making it even harder to find Cornwell. Both matters and sad and frightening to have happend so close together but assuming that these things are related to one another is bogus and rediculous.

I also knew Matt. He was such a talented/gifted young man. Matt not long ago finished college with a 4.0 GPA and was just beginning his career in film, computer animation and photography. He was totally passionate about his work. I do not know what 'friends' he was with on that night he excused himself and went outside. I do know Matt had some of the most highly thought of young people in Blue Ridge as his close, dear friends. I never believed this was a suicide. I believe someone took Matt's life from him. Matt had way too much to live for. I think there is much more to this tragic story or the GBI wouldn't be involved. I pray justice will prevail here. We will miss Matt, and miss all the creative energy he could have given to us in this world. There are many of us who loved Matt and are mourning his death. We will never forget him.
