Knowing the family of the VICTIM personally, it makes me sick to hear all of this talk about Money and Parental Neglect. What all of you are forgetting with this case, is that a boy (barely a man) is dead. His life ended. His life ended in an apartment in Fl and the only person there who could have helped him didn't, he waited, and he let him die. He was a friend of mine, and his family is like my family. Believe me when I tell you, they are not trying to make money, they are ruined over the fact that they lost their son and their lives will never be the same. We should only be so lucky for Mr Neiman to feel the same kind of pain in his own life.
The Golini family loved their son who had a rather lengthy history of using Methadone, Crack, Heroin, and other drugs for along time.
The day before Golini dies, he obtained Methadone from a female co-worker. Having developed resistance to the drugs, Golini asked to know what "real Metahadone looked and tasted like".
The levels of Methadone were Toxic, and then he also used Zanax. Golini complained his father William was an alcholic. Golini's mom received letters from a concerned parent about her sons drug abuse.
Golini was arrested for acting out while under the influence of drugs. I do not beleive Golini was gay. I do beleive he was a drug addict who needed help. The parents of Christopher recieved several notices about the existence of a huge drug problem. Certainly, someone other than Neiman is to blame for this pre-existing problem.
And then you state that he watched and did nothing. I do not beleive this to be true and I do not know of any way to prove or disprove what your stating either. I beleive the witneses stories do not co-incide with your version and I do beleive you should reach out to the right people to get all the facts about what really occurred. I hope this helps the family in the peace which they are seeking to place this to rest.

Gay or not gay and previous drug use really has no bearing. This all hinges around the actions of Neiman who is not exactly a credible guy. I still would like to know why the surveillance tapes from his place have mysteriously disappeared and why he has left the country with what I hear is a pile of money not all of which may be rightfully his. How could anyone take his word for anything? even if Golini's parents win in court, I believe they will never see a dime, especially with Neiman in Panama. This is clearly NOT about the money. It will be interesting to see how it pans out in court if it ever makes it that far.

Why did Brian go to Panama? Well, what would you do if you were being called by several different persons that were marketing, and offering this service and that service. Lets not forget the extorsionists and their demands.

Regarding his money. I hear other persons are out there placing a claim on his money. Lets face it, the economic situation today is horrific. I beleive Neiman left to avoid the day to day agressive pan handling, and extorsionist plots.

If Neiman were a woman, I would have I would have fallen in love with him. He is not a bad guy. He is not capable of sitting back and doing nothing while a young man is in distress. He is a very kind man. Yes, he is gay, so what. Everyone that comes in contact with him knows what his sexual preference is, he does not hide it. He does not trick, or lure people. People come to him because he is very charming.

If you hand out with him, and if you show that you are not interested in the gay life style, he does not do anything to trick you, or anyone else for that matter. This is my opinion, based on my personal observations.

I know that others might think he is not the nice guy, but come on, this man is afraid of his shadow. I think a few judgements and a faltering economy sent him to Panama where he is attempting to re-invent himself. I dont beleive Brian is loyal to his allies, and former employees, but even his ex-employees have to conceede that he was a fair and generous man.

I keep hearing allot of talk about videos. To my knowledge, Brian would have desired that those videos you are referring to would have existed because they would have exhonerated him from all the public scrutini. He did not destroy evidence because there was no evidence to destroy.

Everyone should leave Brian alone. He knows who his allies are. Even if he has decided to forget us, the truth is exactly that, and it will not change. Brian has no obligation to maintain his friendships. I wish him success and I wish the Golini family peace.

If he was so fair and generous, why are so many vociferously claiming otherwise? Seems like there were more skeletons than just Golini in the closet.

And you know this for a fact? The only videos missing are the ones that could “exonerate” him. IMO, it is certainly suspect. More likely, those videos prove his guilt.

A good person doesn’t abandon his responsibilities. A good person doesn’t flee the country in the midst of a scandal. A good person doesn’t “forget” friends. Yes, he has no obligation to maintain contact. But, generally speaking, the only people who disappear the way Neiman has are those who are hiding something.

Well, it is funny that people say that he is a nice man, he was a resident of the condo that I live in today, I have lived there for a few years, and he has now sold his unit, and the condo that he is trying to move into, is suing him, and stopping him from moving in, also, why did the valet at my condo tell me that Brian has taken off for the islands? That doesn't make much sense to me, the day of his closing, he closed, then took off....

Not if you see a better oppourtinity to move to a new location where the economy is doing better than ours. Business is just that. How many corporations moved to Mexico. Did all of them move because they were evil? Not.

And I believe Neiman left to avoid further inquiries into Golini’s death and possible consequences.
<quoted text>

Honestly, I do not beleive he is concerned about the Golini death, and there should be no consequences. The man drugged himself for many years before the incident, and overdosed himself on the night of the incident. This is called tolerance to drugs and toxicity. Several drug addicts die in the same fashion. This does not make their friends, or lovers guilty of anything.

Psychos usually are very charming. It’s how they get victims to let down their guard.
<quoted text>

Yes, I agree, but this guy is far from a Psycho. You obviously do not know him.

If he was so fair and generous, why are so many vociferously claiming otherwise? Seems like there were more skeletons than just Golini in the closet.
<quoted text>

Where are the fair and generous person who have come out and told us that Golini was not a drug addict? Where are the persons that grew up with Golini who used to be his best friends? I know atleast two are dead due to a drug overdose. Was Golini responsible for their deaths because he used drugs to? Give me a break....

And you know this for a fact? The only videos missing are the ones that could “exonerate” him. IMO, it is certainly suspect. More likely, those videos prove his guilt.
<quoted text>

There were no videos. If you guys want to know the real deal, contact the man with all the real information.....

Neiman may be viewed by some to have abandoned his responsiblilities, but you have to look at the case at hand with an objective eye. I know of only one person who may have the ability to make the above statement, and I'm not certain about that persons credibility either. This entire case is so convoluded, and murky that I would not directly challenge your views on that which you have just written.

Mr. Neiman is enjoying a pina colada, warm sunlight, and refreshing breezes while he spends his millions of dollars enjoying himself. Kepp working, and nice of you to sell out on your own son.

Why only wishful thinking. Amigo, you need to speak to the ones who know about these things and those things. You have not reached out. I know how to make the offenders life a living hell, but that costs time, and money. If you are reading this, its because you have not found your inner peace. I can give you peace of mind and rattle chains in Neiman's bedroom and haunt him for the rest of his life. All for a fee....think about who this is, and reach out.

This is all bullshit. Neiman is a killer and he should pay. It isn't about money! His father is a neurologist and his mother is a nurse and a lawyer...you think they need money? You are wrong. This is a sick gay rapist who should pay for what he has done before it happens to others! If anything, financials has to do with his end...he has been paying people off for years. When is the guilty person going to pay for what he has done?

While it is true that for them most part lawsuits are all about money and it is also true that lawyers benefit. However, I find it hard to believe that any parent that lost a child would only be interested in money and not justice. That attitude sounds more like Neiman. If you are a parent then you should be able to relate to this, if not, you probably know people that are and might consult them for an opinion.

Hold on..."lovers" Bottom line is that Neiman is gay and Chris was not.

A "nice" person doesn't flee from his own actions. Why doesn't the bastard come forward with the truth if you are saying that he is so "innocent?"

Hmmm...doesn't make sense to me.

How can you even say that about his parents when you were not a witness of their "parenting" for years?

If you don't have the facts than don't talk. They were loving parents who cared highly for their son and promoted education and wanted their son to be successful and have a great life.

Neiman ruined this for him!
A Concerned Citizen wrote:
As to the allegations against Mr. Neiman, they are total bullshit. Mr. Neiman is a nice man, and Golini had negatively influenced enough people with his own long history drug use. The parents are trying to condem an innocent person because they failed at parenting and now want to blame someone else for their own short comings. William Golini and Kathleen Golini, where were you while your son was abusing drugs for all these years?
