We are so sorry for your loss. We are good friends of Mike's dad, and wanted to share our condolences. I hope the grief in your heart will soon be replaced by the fond memories the two of you created.

How dare you insinuate that he would want to kill himself. It was a complete accident. The girl that was sitting in front of the building crying, that was me. I was the girlfriend he lived with in that god foresaken building. We are having a hard enough time handling this without everyones stupid guess work on what happened. Leave him alone. <quoted text>

It's amazing to me how people who don't even know a person feel they have a right to make assinine remarks about something or someone they know nothing about. Way to abuse the 1st amendment! Get a life people.
Shelby...our hearts and prayers are with you, and the whole family. We wish we could be there!

hey shelby, my heart goes out to you and you and mike's family as hubby works in the building directly behind 210 e chestnut, and he leaves work at 11pm every nite, and he and i both were devestated to hear something like that happened. these peoople on here are inconsiderate and speculate way too much, clearly he was locked out since the window was broken out. i will continue to pray for you all.
Hugs and Blessings,

He was locked out of his apt. Quit speculating that he did it on purpose.
