Nobody who knew Amo or who has been a rider would ever give a tinker what the rest of the world thinks. A rider alone, on a desolate road in the middle of the night pinned under a 900 pound bike....Those are the only facts we know for sure. His ride his terms, no one but the Lord as his judge.

The original story said he had a gunshot wound to the BACK of his head. I find it very strange. If you were in pain to the point to put yourself out of misery, does anyone think the back of the head would be the entry point of a bullet? Is there residue on his hand? Sounds like there is quite a bit of info missing here and I hope the police actually follow through to the end of this investigation. Possibility of foul play seems likely.

What I find strange is they can make a ruling of suicide and still say test results pending.
I also find it strange that Amo could reach in pull out his gun but what about his phone??? I wouldn't call the area desolate, I'm sure it's not well traveled at that time of night but somebody was around. Who called the state troopers about the dead deer??? I really think the botched this one, I think the authorities should have paid more attention. Either way we lost a great guy, may he be at peace.

This is Westmoreland County. The police around here simply can't handle anything bigger than speeding tickets, traffic violations, and petty crime. Unless there's overwhelming evidence against someone in a major crime around here, it usually seems to get filed under "cold case".

Sad....but true.

Simple case actually, he was riding a motorcycle with no helmet, hits a deer and dies. Case closed. No need to spend any anymore tax dollars figgerin it out.

Wait, oh look he's got a bullet in his head from a gun he wasn't permitted to carry. Still case closed.
