The man you found on sept. 9th is Richard Koski, age 35 and a proir resident of warren, MI. Two days ago(10/3), My family went down to the morgue and identified his body. I dont know if you are the person i should be talking to about this but i'll give it a whirl anyway. There are a few things that do not quite match up in my uncles death and they have me leaning away from suicide and the cause of death. For the past five or six months my uncle has been on crack-cocaine as a result of loosing his condo/car/other car/furniture and so on because his job was outsourced. When they found his body he didnt have any drugs in his blood at all meaning he had been clean at least a couple of days. I dont know statistics but i would bet at least 90% of drug addics that commit suicide do so with at least some of that drug in their system. Why he did quit i couldnt tell you, maybe he owed too much money to a drug dealer to go back to Detroit, maybe he got up the courage to kick it or maybe he had a seizure and passed out for thirty hours(he was a bad diabetic) but thats not really my point. One other fishy coincidence is that on sept 10th,11th or 12th my grandma found a yellow rose in her mailbox, luckily for me and the rest of our family she just thought it was a gift from my grandpa. A yellow rose has only one meaning nowadays which is friendship but years and years ago in European countries single yellow roses were used to portrait jealosy and DYING LOVE. This is what makes it hard to believe this suicide theory, it just doesnt make any sense. If you find out who is in charge of his investigation(if still on-going) please contact me, i will do anything asked of me to get some real closure out of my uncles death. I can be emailed at ktotheizzo8769@yahoo.com or phoned at -thank you for your time---Dave

I can't believe it. Rick and I grew up together. We were in Kindergarden together. He would push me in the wagon during recess. Later on we would be in 2nd and 3rd grades together and even went to Boblo Is. with our class in 2nd and 3rd. In 8th grade my family moved away from the neighborhood to another but not that far away. We grew up on Columbus. Last time I saw rick was the summer (2008). We spent the day at my house with another mutual friend who he grew up with after I moved away whom he introduced to me in 1992 eating white castle and talking about old times. We even shared a job together in the 1990s. I miss him already and I just found out today from my brother. Sad.
