Stout case and rumors

I haven't lived in Buckhannon for several years, but have many contacts that still live there. I am sorry to hear that this young man is missing. I do hope that he is found alive. No one deserves to loose a family member at the hand of another. Now, the reason for my post. I have read many of the threads here on topix and find that for the most part, people are just trying to start trouble. The police will only give out so much information because they are trying to solve this case and find Mr. Stout. If we knew everything that they knew, then what would be the purpose of investigation? I do not know the Stout family and wish them the very best in finding their loved one. With that said, instead of having protests of business and the police, use those resources as search parties. The same people protesting could be the ones looking for Luke. Continuing the gossip that Buckhannon is so well known for only hurts the innocent.

As a community, Buckhannon should band together and search. The saying that you can get more with honey than vinegar stands in this situation.

As for most of the other posts, if you want to know something about an individual, then ask them not everyone else. No one wants their name dragged through the dirt. If you are wanting to spread gossip, then at least have the self respect for yourself and put your name on the post, otherwise keep it to yourself.

As for bad mouthing business, if you don't like the business then don't return. It's as simple as that.

And for those who will say that I am on welfare, you would be wrong. I also am only home during the day because the price of child care would be almost what can be made in a pay period on minimum wage. I'm sure that I will be attacked because when people are called out, they get defensive.

I hope that those that read this thread will realize that most of us are not in high school and that the actions of high school are childish and that we need to be adults.

Now if only everyone else could see things this way but what can I say there are some truely ignorant people out there and unfortunaly anonymous forums like this bring out the worst in them. I just don't see the point in trashing peoples names if your not man or woman enough to stand up and say it to their face

Thanks Props and Lena. I find it interesting that since I did not drag anyone's name through the dirt, that I only had two responses. Which proves to me that the gossip mongers are the ones who are driving this site.

I know that in the Manassas topix page, there is a serious lack of gossip. Rather, there is information that is pertinent to many people.

I couldn't agree more, and I'm surprised someone hasn't replied back to you yet with a sarcastic, ignorant comment. It's usually the same ones. I'm not even from Buckhannon, never lived there at all. But I do live in WV, not far from Upshur Co. I didn't know anything about this story until I came across a 'Missing' picture on Facebook. Since it wasn't too far, I started reading into it. It's a shame that even enemies of the victim and the victim's family, that have no involvement in this, won't even put their differences aside and open their eyes! Too many greedy people and Lena, you're right.. it's all over the WV forums.. I'm sure it's in other states, but I try to stay in the WV forums, myself.

I, along with you and the rest of Luke's friends and family, hope and pray this doesn't come out worse than what it is.

BTW - If anyone starts arguing with anything I said (IDK why they would, but someone will).. you will be arguing with yourself. I won't reply back, unless it's a civil conversation.

I live in Buckhannon. It pains me to see and hear all that's been going on. I just hope he can be found soon before the town implodes on itself from all the fighting. "Formerly From", thank you for creating a sensible post on the matter, instead of all the bashing I've heard recently. It's a major relief.
