well 7:20 am is not a suspicious time to be at work, and where he was at when killed may have been a location where he had work? Why he was on the trestle, I would like to know?

The drivers would fill their trucks with water right along the road. The tank that held the water was a little way away, so the drivers would walk up to the railroad trestle and walk out on it a little way to see the tank. With binoculars they could see the tank and the gauge, so they would know if there was another load of water to haul. This was common practice among the divers. The man trying to earn a honest living and then this happens, it does not make sense.

All of us including you have at one time or another have seen a DO NOT SIGN and we and you have done it anyway. Do NOT sit,stand, walk, or enter. So I made a DUMB SIGN to be stamped on our foreheads, so we can show the world we are a part of the folks that are dumb/can't read. I have already stamped mine so when will you stop by and I will stamp yours or you can even stamp it yourself.

Signs are posted for a reason. I've never went on any property that was posted NO Trespassing.

I only wish that some of you defending the practice of trespassing could sit in my seat. You have no idea how helpless one feels seeing people especially children somewhere they don't belong and knowing that they are about to be seriously injured or killed. Please don't start talking about fences either. In a local city, a young girl was killed when she darted out in front of a train. After a big outcry, a fence was erected only to be knocked down within 24 hours. That fence was replaced three times before the city gave up. The best bet is education and lead by example. My parents would have tanned my behind if they caught me on the tracks. It was a darn good reason to stay clear. Please stay off the tracks so we don't meet by accident.

could you refine breaking the laws so I will know if I am? I know not to trespass and I don't, but maybe I'm doing something else that I shouldn't be doing? Please fill me in on some laws mr or miss perfect!!!!

I will assume you drive, you are going down the interstate the speed limit is 65, you look down to see how fast you are going and to your horror you are going 78. You have broken the law and need a ticket, do you turn yourself in to the next cop you see??
NO Trespassing you are the type of person I don't understand, you think you are better than the rest of us, my friend you better look in the mirror.
I am not a bible reading person but I believe the is a verse that says " whoever is without sin case the first stone".
Are you going to be the one to cast the first stone????

When are you people going to learn?!

It's against the law to trespass.
Did that man know how to read? If not a family member should have told him not to go on the tracks.

I never will understand a large percent of you citizen's of McDowell County.

Strange!!!

If the truth about him comes out, I'll bet he was a drunk or a drug addict.
I knew these ppl, and this man's wife, well, I grew up with her and her family and my family have always been friends for years, and u would be totally surprised to find out that this family was not into drugs, and he definately was not a drunk, he was a good man, so before u go running ur mouth about someone, u need to get the facts straight and right, as far as I am concerned, u are now looking like a dumb a**, oh wait, apparently u r one, for making such assumptions about someone u don't even know, rip RK. Praying for this family.
