You know i to knew stewert not as well as some but i did. And i will say i am very upset about some of these comments. Stewert was not a bad guy nor does any of this sound like something he would do. Now i want all of you ignorant people to think what if this was someone you loved.. It would upset you and it would tick you off having to read all of these stupid comments saying its better this way because we all know its not. Now why dont all of you let it go and let this young mans family and friends have there time to mourn because im sad to say this js childish and should have been kept to yourself

For the record, I knew Stewart well. I lived with him for 2 years and the actions he did on this night aren't normal of him. Also how dare you people talk about someone you do not know. He had lots of potential and was a very successful student and highly aspiring bodybuilder. It would be wise to not judge someone due to the actions of one night. He lived for 22 years and was a great person, ask anyone who knew him. The night of this incident the police were even told that he was mentally unstable and acting out of his mind. I will agree what he did wasn't right and I wish I could sit down and ask him why, but that will never happen now. I do believe that he died because of his treatment in the prison. He was used to eating a large diet, nearly 10 meals a day, and not fed even a portion of what he was used to. He even complained to his father of hunger pains in the 5 days he sat in that cell. I do not know how the police handled him, but I do know it probably wasn't with warm open hands. I simply feel that if proper care and consideration would be taken of him while in jail, and yes he did need to be there because of his actions, even though I believe he was not within his proper mental bounds, then he would still be alive. I personally want answers for what happened to a good friend of mine and I don't want people remembering him for the actions of obviously the hardest night of his life. Rather he should be remembered for the other 22 short years he got and all the happiness he brought to his many friends.
Steroids or gravel? What was his drug of choice?

o I believe that I have been in that jail and they have sent several to the hospital. I have saw them 7 on 1 kicking them in the head and high fiveing each other after its over. I learned real quick to keep my mouth shut and cower in your cell if you know what's good for you.
