Boy, KARMA sure does come around to bite people in the ****, now doesn't it?
Perhaps if Rowland had lived a GOOD life, his stepson would still be alive today.
Karma has a funny way of evening things up. It doesn't necessarily have to happen to you; but it will definitely affect you.
Be careful what you wish for.
You're a moron for writing that, Rowland hated his stepson

It sounds to me like he had a substance abuse problem. That is an illness.

RIP, my condolences to the Rowlands.

when someone has passed away you shouldn't write about the bad things they have done in there passed. What happened to him is a tragedy and is heart breaking, dont make him look like a terrible person and he deserved what happened to him. Learn how to write a descent story.

Something sounds strange. Was he ill? Was it drugs? Sounds odd that a 23 year old had trouble breathing and suddenly dies. There's more to this story that we aren't being told!!!
Right! and it is none of anyone's business!

I suspect "Jimmy Driver" isn't a parent.

There is no law that says that good people can't get into trouble with drugs. Mental problems don't just happen to families that don't live a "GOOD life", they can strike anywhere.

If "KARMA" really existed the world would be a different place. For starters we could get rid of our entire Justice System since Justice would be dispensed automatically.

Live in reality. It's a more complex and far messier place to live, but at least it's an honest way to live.

Well.... let's see. The article did say "We have lost a wonderful young man, after a long illness." So what I take away from that is that he was ill.
If you want to speculate, it sounds like it could have been an asthma attack. But who knows? And whose business is it to know? Will you sleep better tonight if you know how he died?
A "Long Illness" could have been a "drug addiction", which sounds like this case.

True, but the point is that this is all speculation right now. Yes, the kid had a troubled past, but people always love to think the worst.

Yes. Believing in something is insane.

Why does this still say "update" when the story has not been touched in 4 days? When there really is something new to report, nobody will read it. "The Newstimes who cried wolf"
