We all know about David "Brillo" Lewis.

Who pushed him? Surely it wasn't just coincidence that the Bryant boy's just "happened" to head to the bar and leave him there alone.

The "unbiased" Morrow Police Dept see no cause for suspicion.

Neither does Warren County...

Someone knows what happened...Maybe Mr. Kilburn covering up for someone who has the dirt on him? "Mayor" Erwin?

Things that make you go "Hmmmm..."

This is being kept quiet. Why?-- Bryant? Kilburn? Erwin?

Exactly! One very small article on is it. No mention of who, circumstances, or any updates.

"An employee at the canoe rental business said she had no further information about the incident."

Erwin? Is it bad for "both businesses"? Was proof of his "other" business about to be revealed?

Bryant? Protecting the rest of the clan?

Kilburn? Everyone knows of his past...was it going to catch up with him?

Less than 12 hours after it happened, everything was buried!

Nothing is secret in this town! You can't spit the wrong direction without everyone in town hearing about it, yet it took me 4 days to find out who it happened to, and it only happened because there are donation boxes spread throughout the stores and bars in town.

Anyone who has ever had anything to do with the Village of Morrow knows just how corrupt everything is and how it works...and the absolute vast majority are afraid to say anything due to constant harassment of themselves, friends, and family. I've lived it and seen it, and it happens.

This has to end! Remember the gentleman who was found dead on the sidewalk on Main Street a few years ago? Nothing was ever revealed about it, as it was just swept under the rug. Ryan Hunt harassing, at the time, the only African American resident of Morrow over his BBQ stand on a daily basis because he and a "prominent" Morrow citizen had exchanged words?

Hopefully, this WILL NOT be another case just like these?

Anyone have anything else to add?

What's this about the man on Main St. a few years ago? I don't think I heard about this. I do remember the guy with his BBQ stand. Who was the "prominent" Morrow citizen?

Hey, "Concerned," you are aware that the incident which resulted in a man losing his life occurred at the LITTLE MIAMI CANOE RENTAL, right?

This has absolutely nothing to do with Erwin, Kilburn, etc., so please check yourself before getting on here to imply someone's involvement in conspiracy and murder.

please, remember what happened to the yahoos who got on here to wildly and irresponsibly "theorize" what happened in the Widmer home the night Sara Widmer lost her life - the county forced several websites to track down the "anonymous" posters via court order.

If something similar were to occur in this case then you'd be in a heap of trouble for making such irresponsible statements.

Listen... I liked Brillo. Admittedly, I didn't know Brillo very well; however, he has been a part of this town for a long time and I found him to be a big-hearted and nice man. It is difficult to wrap your mind around something as senseless as another human being dying in the manner that Brillo died.

It is human nature to try to rationalize what seems irrational. You can't go grasping for straws by making wild, broad, and generalized accusations, and anyone who does this is doing Brillo a disservice.

I called yesterday to the village and the county to ask the status of the investigation. The coroner's reports aren't complete. I was told by the county and the village that the case is 'far from closed.' I've been assured that appropriate actions and investigations will be taken if there is any suspicion of foul play, and I believe that to be true.

In the mean time, if anyone has any *real* information regarding what happened that night then they should contact the police.

Again I'll ask - if any one can tell me.

What's this about the man on Main St. a few years ago? I don't think I heard about this. I do remember the guy with his BBQ stand. Who was the "prominent" Morrow citizen?

Sue -

To answer your question:

There was no "gentleman who was found dead on the sidewalk on Main Street a few years ago."

And, I'd guess "Concerned" is talking about Yorkie being the "Morrow Citizen." I knew Tony the black BBQ guy, and of course he caught a little flack cause HE WAS THE ONLY BLACK GUY IN TOWN and HE SOLD BBQ ON THE STREET and initially WITHOUT WARREN COUNTY HEALTH DEPT. APPROVAL. Even then Tony only mentioned one occasion of getting harassed by someone who walked over from Vic's but, believe it or not, it was an elected official (Yorkie wasn't an elected official in 2007 / 2008, so ya know I'm not talking about Mr. Bryant.)

Who' spreading rumors now - bet Yorkie likes your take on things.

And your statement "If something similar were to occur in this case then you'd be in a heap of trouble for making such irresponsible statements" reminds me of some old school teacher. She was always telling me what was good for us, like she was looking out for me. "heap of trouble" What a bunch of BS you liberals come up with..... You know best.

We know Richard also...Do you remember the young girl that had her neck/back broken at his party a while back? I'm sure plenty of people that have stories. It wouldn't hurt to remind people now. What do you know about the Bryant family?

who would be chicken shit enough to write what they did about york bryant,the mayor and chief kilburn. is a slimey person hiding in the dark because they know these men are good men who have always had morrow in their best insterst. all three men have done more for morrow than anyone else ever has. i would guess it's someone running for office in morrow who doesent have the guts to come out of the shadows to compete with the rest

You don't understand ... The Mayor told me he wasn't going to run this time ... the bastard.

Any way, no one mentioned Richard's name but you guys. Maybe there is something to this.

Dick, Dickie, Dicky, Raechard, Ric, Ricard, Ricardo, Riccardo, Rich, Richardo, Richart, Richerd, Richie, Rick, Rickard, Rickert, Rickey, Ricki, Rickie, Ricky, Rico, Rikard, Riki, Rikki, Riocard, Ritchard, Ritcherd, Ritchie, Ritchy, Ritchyrd, Ritshard, Ritsherd and Ryszard .. It's all the same guy.

WHY IS HIS NAME BEING BROUGHT UP IN THIS. There might be something more to this. Only his drug filled friends are defending him. No one has accused anyone. Yet his friends mention his name.
