Yes young people, the paper did say they were "Investigating to see if it was suicide" they did not say it was suicide. Anytime there is this type of death that question has to be asked. Caleb was an awesome young man, for him to die this way raises a lot of questions and I'm sure his dad and mom and his step-mom and all of his extended family appreciate the way you've all had his back in this. Just pray for them, pray for the truth to come out, pray for those who KNOW what really happened to Caleb that night to be brave and come forward and speak with the authorities...
Caleb gave his life to Jesus Christ a few months ago and any of you who were at his memorial and heard what Pastor Enoch said and the prayer he prayed know that Caleb loved God and His Son Jesus Christ and now he flys with the angels... Fly High My Sweet young Friend, If you truly want to honor Caleb, you too can pray that prayer and give your life to Jesus, be assured you'll see Caleb again if you do!!! I bet you have a nice Motorcycle now ..Huh!!! I can't wait to ride with you again..We will miss your smile, your laughter, your kindness....We will just miss you period Caleb, We were truly blessed for the short time we had with you...

I want to say that I do not know any of you but my heart goes out to the family and friends that this young man had, and I also would like to say please think before you post certain things on here, realize that the family is going thru a horrible time and comments like the one posted by Autumn are completely out of line and unnecessary. I will be praying for your loss.

I know the comment on the bottom is hard to hear, but if what is said is true, the family needs to jump on the police. It seems they are not taking it serious. God bless you all and I hope what really happened is figured out.

Ok this is really starting to get on my nerves....i didnt know Caleb as well as most the people on here do, but i knew him well enough to know he wouldnt commit suicide.... and someone posted he was already dead before he got placed on the tracks, they dont know that and whoever left him there by himself deserves to feel guilty, common sense says to take care of someone in a situation like that....and because nobody did he is dead and only lived 15 years....i cry still when i think about the life he could have had ahead of him if someone did take care of him in his time of need that night.....R.I.P CALEB, and may we all see you again in heaven.

In the know it sounds as if YOU might have been at this party or know someone who was, you're pretty sure of your 'facts'....Being a friend of the family for over 20 years I personally think you need to keep your mouth shut. This is still an ONGOING investigation, that means they are still looking at the evidence and talking to those who were present. However, it does look as though our Caleb was already gone when he was put on the tracks, the paper said he was laying across the tracks, he didn't move.
