Kind of funny that WJHL has not even uttered a single word about this. It's tragic but it is news since they spent so much time covering the story when he shot Mr. Williams with the crossbow. This isn't the first time they have not covered a story for whom they consider important people. News is news and should have unbiased coverage. My condolences to the family.

Just wondering if there is more to the story? If I understood, the rope and gun in the car were not used?

I will no longer watch WJHL News because of not getting all the news that I expect . I don't think the station is giving the people that advertise with them their moneys worth .WJHL appears to act in a selfish manner when reporting on their own personel . I like to see the same news as other local tv news reports and news papers print because it is news and thats why I have watched WJHL TV NEWS since it first began showing many years ago but no more enough is enough.I agree with what selective reporting wrote in their post.News is news and should have unbiased coverage. My condolences also go to the family.

A lot of media outlets including WJHL choose not to report suicides out of respect for the family.

Wow.. You all are beyond ridiculous and part pf those always "stirring the pot" "causing drama when there's NO drama"... And let me ask I get WJHL as part of my cable packet, when and how are "you paying for it?".. As noted by someone already the news outta respect doesn't cover suicides as much.. But I lm guessing the small minded group of people on here "stirring the pot" get off by knowing the details of some disturbed person that was clearly lost... But I guess you guys grab your popcorn and wanna know the details and then what blame WJHL? Hop back on topix and spread some details and add some of your own? Then we all have to subject ourselves to why you all are always right.. And sign in under a couple different names them pretending someone agrees with you? Quote clearly such a small group of A holes that are never happy, always whining and crying because your never happy, never have enough, blaming others, sit behind a computer screen a day long hiding behinds fake names because your to chicken to say these things you all start on here.. Hurt people, destroy their lifes but fail to ever look in mirror and look right in the face of what's wrong with the world today.. And I'm guessing most of you are doing so on my dollar and every other working persons dollar while you stay home all day getting welfare, teaching your children the same way of life and the cycle keeps going so that when my kids get older my kids will be taking care of yours.. If you all are so unhappy get off your A$$, grow up, stop hiding and face life like an adult..

I think WJHL failed when they didn't have on their newscast that someone was reported sitting in a car at a city park parking lot and was found that he was deceased . They could have left it at that . The way it was suggested that he had lived his life was his own business and that wasn't what my posts were pertaing too . Just the news not the gossip , drama or any of the trash but have a little something on it so people would have not noticed that the whole event was omitted .WOW I think you need to talk to someone to help you with your negitive thoughts about other people .

I really hate to hear about the Man taking is own life. I must say when this first started back last summer I was sick by the way WCYB reported this story. It's time that we all mind our own business and what goes on behind closed doors in a Adults home is their business as long as they are not breaking a any laws. Not matter if you are whatever....its your business as what you do..

Just admit it.WJHL is the Gay channel and you have no choice but to accept their values and morals as your hometown TV station. Most important of all it's not about NEWS- it's all about WEATHER..DUH It might as well be called the Weather channel and we all know MArk Reynolds is the leasder of this clan. It's not about gay as much as THEY DO NOT REPORT ANY NEWS!!!!!!!! JUST TUNE IN AT 5:58 AND YOU WILL GET A 2 MINUTE WEATHER UPDATE THEN...3-5 MINUTES OF NEWS AND THEN GUESS WHAT? THE WEATHER LOL
