I bet he was homeless. It says formerly of Dracut, and a lot of homeless people camp out down there!

You should be ashamed saying such things. He is from an extremely nice family, and was not homeless. You hurt others with such comments.

What did I say?? I'm sorry if I hurt someone. That was not my intention. It's a fact that a lot of homeless people "live" down there and where the paper said he was formerly of Dracut I thought that was an indication that he may have been homeless.

I think Mr-MillCity.com may have something there, just tell me it isn't so.. And, I Betcha since it's in the local newspaper (don't want to mention names) and if it's like the Sub-Shop-Murder write up in that paper, maybe it was the food at the school that did him in, ya think. I heard they don't wear hair nets when handling the food and who knows if they cough either.

Eddie was not homeless. He was actually a very successful business owner at one point and his life took a tragic turn. My heart goes out to his children and entire family.

Honestly, can't you all wait for the full story to come out before you start assuming things? This poor man was someone's father, and family member. I know I will swing by and hug my Dad a bit tighter tonight. My condolences to his family.

...and hopefully your dad kicks you back, but not in the head, seems theres already enough damage there. Maybe the balls would be a good spot, so you cant reproduce.

Don't feed the troll.
I think the article said the man was 54 yrs. old. Could be he was just taking a walk and had a heart attack. When no one finds you for a few days and you start decomposing, you're not going to be looking or smelling good to anyone.
