Hi to everyone. I know what happen. He has told me.He did go up there by himself but he did take some stuff that got him not to think right. Did somebody do this to him. Yes (He) did. And (he) knows who he is and I know who he is. Yes there is something wrong here. But was it an accident it might of been. But someone helped him to overdose and that person will pay when judgement comes.

Yes I can. I communicate in different way's. I either have to be at the site where they passed away or where they lived or hungout. Where ever their energy was. Sometimes I get stuff over the phone but not to much.I pick up the energy of the person. Do you live near.

Lol. Spirit connector.
I do believe people can talk to the dead.
But your just a fraud. && You watched 1 to many movies about this kind of stuff.
Basically everything you say you "do"
Was on the movie White Noise.
He Didn't Put Himself In The Attic To Die.
Police will know soon enough who killed him...
Or at least who gave him the drugs he was on when he passed away.
But i garentee you he didn't wrap himself up and through himself in an attic.
So cut the crap.

This post is for Andrea, Trash, Unknown, Sylvia, Freshness, Cynda, Levi, Veela & Shawty.
You guys are wineing because you are getting all the blame or no one respects you. Did you EVER stop to think there might be a reason for this??? Did you ever stop to think that most people are known by the REPUTATION they earn because of the way they are or what they do in life.
I'm sure a MATURE, WELL RESPECTED ADULT such as Levi is just misunderstood and no one sees all of the wonderful things he does in and for his community. Even Andrea I'm sure is misuderstood because I'm sure she really doesn't tell everyone to choke on a "fat dick". I'm certain that if Trash was the last one to see Jeremy, we know how wonderful he is, he would have tried to help Jeremy if he was so totally stoned that it looked like he was "going to have a heart attack".
I agree with Veela as far as freedom of speech. What all of you don't seem to realize, as you are crying the blues and upset because of what people are saying you, is that you have ALL obviously show the real you to the community and on you my space pages. If you WANT RESPECT, I suggest you actually try to earn it instead of just thinking you deserve it just because you exist on this earth.
I know Jeremy had hung out with a lot of you (which we all know you are all such decent, good, upstanding people in your community)and you say he was into drugs and yet NONE of you tried to get him help....because that is what a good friend and well respected person would do.
Personal opinion....I think you all are just a bunch of PUNKS that can't stand the heat. You like being the "Bad Asses" as long as no one hurts your feeling and then the crying starts. You have all picked the life you want to lead and the people you want to be...so just accept the fact that you will receive what you asked for. My guess is you all have parents that totally sucked at raising you and could have cared less what you were doing as long as you were out of their hair and not bothering them. I would also guess that most of your parents can talk trash talk as well as all of you....as they say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
I hope all of you wonderful, fine, upstanding mature adults (that I'm sure have good jobs and never miss paying your bills) have a great day.

First of all...What I would like to know is how his body just so easily was in an attic. I am sure he didn't crawl up into an attic space himself. I personally believe Jeremy was probably doing some drugs with some friends of his...had an overdose and died, his friends freaked out about and put his body up in the attic. Just because police say there is no foul play, does not mean there wasn't. It happens ALL the time. Obviously they were in a hurry to close the case. I am not saying Levi or any of his friends had anything to do with this, because I personally don't know them and can't judge them by their MySpace pages. However, I do think there are people who know what happened, they are just keeping their mouths shut so they don't get caught. I hope one of these days it truly comes to the surface. There's too many drugs and little wanna be gang-bangers hanging out in Greenville...pretty sad they will probably end up in the prison I work at!

Never met them. Just know their type.

Personal opinion....most people don't get so spastic unless people are pushing buttons that are close to the truth.

Do you know them or Jeremy?

Well seems to me if this failed war on drugs was not so offensive on families then they wouldn't felt a need to hide the friend in the attic if they could have just taken to the hospital or at least called the authority without repercustion ... We can not arrest our way out of this problem and it needs to be taken out of the laws hands and turned over to the medical personal and start treating this problem with compassion ...

Actually it goes back further than that. Parents need to take responsibility for their children. Don't let them do what ever they want as they grow up. Teach them to respect others and the difference between right and wrong. There are too many parents who don't want to spend the time or effort with their children so they just let them do what ever they want so the kids are out of their hair. How many times have you heard a parent tell their child that "if you do that one more time you are going to get a spanking" and the child does it ten more times and nothing happens....what do you think this is teaching children??? That they can do what ever they want.

PARENTS...get off your lazy butts and start following through on your threats of punishment...take the game boy or computer away for a week, put them in time out...etc. If you weren't raised that way and you don't know how to parent....get help... there is plenty out there. Don't think that the teachers should do your job of raising your children for you. When you had your children you also have a commitment...not your daycare or your school.

At the same time you are teaching your children about behaving....teach them how bad drugs, drinking, smoking, etc. are.

I actually feel somewhat sorry for Levi and his friends....they must have had a very lonely childhood and are still seeking attention.

Thank You For Believing Foul Play Was Involved.
Like You Said, And I have Said Too. You Dont Just OD And Drag Your Body In An Attic. Someone Knew They Were Up There. They Just Didnt Say Anything, Because They Were Probably On As Much Drugs As He Was. Yes, I Do Believe He Was On Drugs. It Was In His Nature. But I Believe He Could Have Been Saved, And Still Be Here Today!!

Kinda. My BESTFRIEND'S Sister was good friends with Jeremy. && Many Of Jeremys Friends, Like Levi && Carl, All Of Them...I Believe That Too...
People Just Dont Spase Out For No Reason, So I Believe Whoever Spased Knows Something About The Case. Maybe Their Not Involved With It, But They Know About It.

It is my understanding that the attic was searched at least 3 time by 3 different people when he came up missing and then somehow he just magically appeared. Hummmm....lets think about this. I don't think people should let up on Levi and his friends because I do think they know exactly what happened.

Of course it is possible that if it was foul play, others don't want to end up like Jeremy by talking!

I think in this case Harry Potter goes by several different names (they know who they are)!

YEA I DONT THINK "IT" DOES. AND MORE THAN LIKELY HE WASNT STONED WHEN HE LOOKED LIKE HE WAS GOING TO HAVE A HEART ATTACK. IF HIS BODY WASNT SO DECOMPOSITED THEN YOU COULD PROBLEY LOOK AT HIS VEINS AND SEE THAT THEY WERE ALL BROKE!!

This is unfortunate what has happened. I graduated from Greenville. My question is: is Greenville schools providing you any sort of an education? Proper grammer, spelling, punctuation? Stay in school, from reading the past post, it's definitly needed. Wow....
