I know that the police did not look fully into this case, nor did the DA take any steps to fully finding the cause of the death or all the actors involved.
also dropping all the right charges because he gave some names up and giving him 3 years probation.
All the information we have has laughed at or ignored.

The autopsy on this report and the statements taken do not match up with the police report that was filed.

It's terrible what happened to the Chandler family. Renee is out doing herion all over again, with the same old people. He spent 6 months in rehab bragging about what happened and being a hometown star. It's pathetic. The justice system is pathtic.

it's really sad how all of this played out. the parents are in total denial. he overdosed. its hard to hear but true. renee didn't act responsibly or nobely, but he certainly didn't hurt tyrus. i guess during a time like this, people need a scapegoat.

To Disgusted: That crap about him bragging is a load of shit. he loved tyrus. he is just as sick as tyrus was. you make it sound like he's running around having a blast. he isn't. he is an addict and suffers everyday from his disease. the same disease tyrus had! when someone is suffering from this disease, survival instinct takes over and logic and civility go out the window.

None of you can speak as if you would have done things any differently. you don't know what it's like. Tyrus was my friend. I knew him and cared for him years before i knew Renee. I would never defend someone if they had hurt him. But you all have become judgemental and cruel in your grief. I wish Tyrus could tell you for himself that he was terminally ill.

I hope the chandler family finds peace. and I hope all those who speak in ignorance find wisdom

While it is true that Tyrus may have been terminally ill, and as sad as it was, and will always be, Renee left him there. Plain and simple. Just left him. What kind of person does that? I knew Renee before his "problem" and he was a terrible person then, so what was his excuse for his actions with Tyrus? I hope to God its not true, but the police reports say Renee put a do not disturb sign on the door before he left, he knew what he was doing. He locked the door and left, he was able to call his girlfriend and tell her, why didn't he call an ambulance instead? Because he didn't care, he didn't care that he could have saved the life of his friend, he cared about not going to jail or rehab (which he clearly needs to be in both).

My thoughts and prayers are always with the Chandler family. I'll never forget Tyrus.
