Just heard that Tom passed away back in October and his silly ass family wouldn't even claim his body. I grew up with him off of Old Alton Road and wondered what happened to him. Also wondered how a mother could not bury their son....really. Tom would have been 50 years old if anyone knows the circumstance.

I know Tom's step-sister. Please don't think I am talking bad. I sent my condolences to her. I for one, think it's wrong to talk about someone who has passed away. Kindness should be shown to the family. They are grieving and do not deserve that kind of treatment. R.I.P Tom.

Is this about Buster Pope who went to high school at North? He murdered his stepfather and buried him under an old shed in the backyard when he was a sophomore.
Uh Huh

This is about Buster, however WOW you are incorrect. The guy who helped his mother murder his step father and bury him was not Buster, his first name was Robin and it happened out by the old KOA campground on chain of rocks road. I grew up with Tom and like everyone he had his demons, but my point to this thread was his Mom wouldn't claim his body and did not tell anyone, really WTF? His grandpa would probably die himself if he knew this. RIP Buster

still pissed, sorry that I got the details of that story wrong. I went to school with Buster and partied with him quite a bit. I liked him very much, although he was generally pretty quiet, he was always a very good guy. After all these years the details are fuzzy but from what I and my friends recall, his stepfather was an abusive sob who was a real asshole to Buster in more ways than we ever knew of and that Buster also had been protecting his mom from him for a long time as much as he could for a kid. From what we recall, the stepdad just disappeared one day and life went on, everyone figured he just took off and no one cared. Eventually somehow the body was discovered and I clearly remember Buster being investigated and then never coming back to school. I think we all had heard that he had killed his stepfather but never was prosecuted because it was justifiable homicide. Then we heard that he moved away. Like I said, I always liked him, never knew what became of him and am sorry to hear that something so sad has happened to him. :(

So what was the last name of the guy named Robin who really helped the mother murder the stepfather? What was the stepfather's name? This sounds like something someone could write a book about! When did all this happen?? Sounds sad all around for you guy's friend Tom/Buster.

My dad never murdered his step-dad! My grandfather Alan Reber passed away in sept 2002. As far as his relationships with his children go I really don't think that its anyones business but ours! Find something else to start drama about other than my father! I am who I am today because of the choices he made, good or bad! FLY HIGH FREEBIRD! <3
