The viewing for Thomas Walden is Friday at Sims Funeral Home from 6-9. The funeral is Saturday at First Baptist Church of Nichols, not sure the time. This info comes from my son, a fellow NJROTC Officer and friend of Thomas.

got this from the ROTC facebook page.

https://www.facebook.com/chsrotc

The viewing for Cadet Walden is tomorrow from 6-9 at Sims Funeral Home and the funeral will be Saturday at The Nicholls Baptist Church at 2. NJROTC has to be there at 1. The bus will leave the high school at 12:30. Cadets need to be in NSU or the t-shirt we are selling if they have turned their uniform in already.

I Did Read the Paper

The Douglas Enterprise says it is still under investigation. It states that they are unsure if it was suicide or accidental. It also states that they do not suspect foul play. What paper were you reading that states something different?

So true Grace. If they do not know what happened they need to just leave it at that. His mother is hurting but also his father too. He was loved by many.

Easy I was just curious how the gun went off by accident I mean what's wrong with the safety? I've been through suicide and accidental death I know exactly how hard it is but talking about it here isn't hurting his family unless they are reading it, most likely they are not im sure his parents are too busy grieving to be on topix

According to those who knew him, he was very safety-conscious whenever guns were involved. Also according to my source, he was found on the ground outside by his mother, and he was still alive. The shot entered his body in the lower ribs and went up into his chest. The trajectory of the shot was low to high. Perhaps he had leaned the gun against something and it fell over and fired. I have heard of that happening before. They don't know how long he had been lying there bleeding when she found him. He made it to the hospital alive, but died there. He bled to death. I don't think anyone knows exactly what happened.

Even really careful people have accidents occassionally.

Everyone needs to leave this thread alone and let the family grieve. Take it from someone who was on the scene, Thomas passed away long before his mother arrived at home. He never made it to the hospital. Now please let this family heal and stop bickering back and forth. It was a horrible accident and he will be greatly missed.

You are right, a few years ago they did the same thing, when greg killed hisself, He passed follwing a breif illness! But everyone already knew what happened, bc some of the first responders spred the story before his body was even out of his house! I think this city is falling to peices!

There is no way this young man took his own life. I could tell from talking to him that he knew what he wanted out of life. He knew where he was going and knew what goals he had set for himself. He was not depressed in the slightest and to say something so disgusting is sad and not a good judge of his character. Thomas is not the sort of young man that would have taken his own life. I pray for his family, he was a great young man!
