Is this the same Gary Platis that has two sisters, Jenny and Barbara? Barbara is a Los Angeles Sheriff County Deputy, if this is the same family. Just curious. I looked at his picture, and if it's the same person, he has aged badly. Are you kidding? He's only 44 and looks like that? I guess he had to rob banks to support a drug habit. Sad, really.

When Gary is drug free and in a rehab....he is truly a good person and cares about others. But when things arent going well or too well he thinks he can have a drink or a smoke,....then it spirals quickly into a world of cocaine and harder drugs and desperation for money to pay for the next fix. He is the first to tell you he is at his best in a rehab program and has been successful in one in downtown Los Angeles.
He will stay in a rehab or one day die ....drugs have a grip on his soul....but sober he shares about Gods grace and strength.
