This is just terrible. Sounds like he had amazing potential, having demonstrated that at such a young age. Absolutely tragic and my condolences to his family and loved ones.

What an incredible spirit he had! It always feels so tragic to lose someone who had so much to offer society. We are all much poorer for this loss. My prayers to his family and friends. May they find solace in the memories of the bright life he lived in such a short period of time.

So Sad....

My girlfriend was part of the same Fine Arts graduate class as Devin in May.

He got probably the largest applause when he was given his diploma by the Fine Arts Dean.

Since I arrived at Uconn in 2003 and gradauated in 2006, there has been one to two deaths every month or so.

It's beyond crazy at the rate, in which, Uconn students/alumni have been dying over the last couple of years.

my thoughts and prayers go out to Devin's family and friends. Its so devastating to hear about a young man who achieved so much and didn't have a chance to explore life. God does everything for a reason and i really am saddened by this story.

As a African-American man and a native of Connecticut, I am so proud of this young gifted man. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends, especially to his mother, who it appears from the article, raised him alone. Please accept my condolences.

i'm still taking this in...i went to elementary school with devin. potential & talent like you wouldn't believe...& no matter how terrible or tough things got he always broke through adversity and raised the bar for his peers. i for one feel lucky to have met such a great individual who (though he may not have known) had a positive & even inspirational impact on my life (& other i'm sure) during tough times. it is even more inspiring to read about his accomplishments considering the type of kid he was in school (just plain gifted...had a scholarship upon completion of grade 5). the world needs more people like him.
RIP Devin

I am shocked. After reading of his achievement a few weeks ago I expected to hear great things as he pursued his career. Very tragic, please say it was an unfortunate accident and not foul play?
My sincere condolences to his family and friends. Sad, sad, sad.

'God' than has a very warped sense of values if 'He' let this amazing young man achieve so much and give so much joy and satisfaction and then ripped him away from that life and that mother who will grieve unabated FOREVER.

Oh yeah:'God bless' him.

Life is just twisted. Not to sound apocalyptic or anything...I think something bad is coming. All these good people that try to make the most for themselves have been taken/"spared" for a reason.

Leaving the world that we're in right now isn't necessarily a bad thing. I know it sounds cliche to say "they're in a better place," but nowadays, with the downward spiral this world is experiencing, this saying has never been truer.

What a terrible tragedy! I remember reading about how many diplomas he earned and all the classes he took. He would have had a bright future. Such a terrible waste...my condolences to his family.

While I do not personally condone swimming in quarries either in daylight or at nighttime, I am not sure it is up to us to decide (without more facts) what occurred here. Has foul play been ruled out? I'm guessing you are just trying to be a smart a** and get a rise out of people. At least I am willing to think you are not as callous as to truly mean what you wrote.
