Thank you....We are doing the best we can under the circumstances. It's just nice to know that others are concerned about our loss....

I did not know that a body could decompose to a skeleton in 45 days, especially without predators helping the decomposition.

Seems strange that there were no reports of a search for the missing man.

At least his family will know what happened now.

they did have a missing person report out, supposedly he was on the phone with his girlfriend a few hours before he wrecked and was complaining of chest pains.

not to mention the Texas heat that time of year and being inside a car too. I just hope his family can come to terms with this and find some peace.

Obviously his family is reading these post as you can tell by the post above you. Have a little compassion and respect for the grieving family...jeeez. I'm sure they don't care to read about the CSI type reports on here. I know I wouldn't if I were in their shoes. Show some respect.

jughead, I don't tell you how to post, so please don't tell me.

Did you call TYESHA BOUDREAUX at the Daily Sentinel and criticize her as well, for reporting the story in the first place.

I think that my post was very respectful.

Somehow I doubt that Tina is related to Mr. Werthman, as he is from Tennessee, not Louisiana.

And I'm sure that your next post will also be about me instead of the topic.

Can we only have relatives in the state in which we reside? If so, my family just shrunk in half.

LOL - and I just managed to ditch 98% of mine if this is the case; hey "Dallas", does this mean we save money or get cheated at Christmas?

Why should i contact the Daily Sentinel for reporting the news? Thats their job. Do you get paid to come on here and make things worse for the poor guy's family? Don't think so. All I'm saying is that it was innapropriate for you to discuss those kind of details in this forum when you can plainly see family members, friends or whatever commenting in here. Have a heart and think before you write. They have a choice whether to read about or not in the newspaper. On here they don't. Whoever commented from La will problem come on here to see if any other positive comments were made towards their loss and BAM they gotta read some CSI wannabes comment about what they think. Shame..........

Why do they not have a choice whether to read in this stupid topix forum. Are you forcing them? I know that I am not.

And I was right, your next post was about me and not the topic, which was an article about finding a decomposed body that was found in a car overgrown with weeds for 45 days. That's what I am discussing. Not the style or form or assumed intent of other posters.

Do you get paid to go around policing other peoples posts and dragging the discussion to an innane playground level of name calling?

Obviously nobody can get their point across to you because your always right in your own mind. As I can see others trying to get their point across to you in other forums. And to no avail.

Once again I will try. Tina, from New Orleans came on here and thanked LIT 1 for their comment. I would hate to be THAT person and come back on this site, only to see the awful comment you made. You have every right to say whatever you want on here. We all do. I just felt your comment was out of place and disrepectful to the family. In the context it was presented in, right after her comment, was inappropriate. What you said makes sense and you had the right to say it. Just try to use some discretion next time.

Please, does anyone else agree with me and get what I'm trying to say here?

BTW...Show me were I stooped to "innane playground level of name calling". Was it saying "CSI wannabe"?
Good Lord, I've heard a lot worse than that on here.

Also if you had kept up with this story you would have known that a missing report was put out on him. There is possible lawsuits going to come out of this because of certain law enforcement Agencies lack of response to the MP report.
