My Two Cents Worth

London, KY

#1 Apr 10, 2009
I want everyone who knew Daniel to give me your two cents worth. Did Daniel REALLY commit suicide or was he murdered and it made to appear as a suicide. I knew Daniel inside and out. I saw Daniel just a couple of days before he died. I will never be convinced that he did that to himself. I know under the circumstances that the police will not investigate any further. They want to close the case, but I think if all of us who knew him and know he wouldn't have done this start calling the state police and questioning what they have done and giving any and all information you have that they will have no choice but to check into things much closer. If you have any info please call Detective Bowling at the London Post. If we dont push this it they won't check like they should. Please give your opinions.
RIP Daniel

This case will not be closed. I'd bet money an arrest will be made this week now that the body has been identified.
RIP Daniel

It wasn't a suicide. No one shoots themselves and then sets themselves on fire.
Well

I think this was DEFINANTLY a murder. Daniel would not have killed himself and who shoots themselves and still manages to catch their vehicle on fire? By the way I also think he would never have driven his truck up there cause it was too low on the ground. Daniel was a good buddy of mine and I just hope they find whoever did this.

I knew Daniel really well. He called me the night that this happened. He was no in the state of killing himself. I just talked to him for a few minutes. He loved lving life to good. The detective on this case knows he called me, and has my number, and still hasn't attempted to contact me. I just think something is really fishy with this case. How could it have took them almost 4 months to identify his body when he had DNA proof from the military? Somethings just don't add up!

I heard they were gonna close this as a suicide.Has anyone heard anything???
Daniel did not kill himself, he never would have done that. Its a shame that there is a murderer walking around that will most likely get away with doing this. What kind of Justice system have we have?? RIP Daniel

The body was found in Clay County. The murder happened in Leslie County, Jack's Creek to be more specific. I'd bet money on it.

His intestines were still inside of his bones so there was DNA evidence. I know this for a fact that they were so no one can say that I am making it up. It is so sad and it seems to me that crimes around here just don't get adequately investigated. I think Detective Bowling or whoever needs to get with it because there is always answers to questions if someone works hard enough to find them. I see these cold cases from the 70s get figured out all of the time with no DNA evidence or whatever so I think it is so stupid at how horrible crimes around here just get passed over. There is no excuse. If the police read this than they should see that there needs to be some more work done. So do it!
