I don't know how people can sit around and know the truth about a life being taken and not tell all they know. What can I do to give you the courage you need?

What was 25 year-old Michael Scott Steele doing at the apartment complex?
How did Craig Neal (whoever he is) force Steele to go there?

Michael needed money Craig set him up with Robbie "the murderer" Maniatis to get drugs but Robbie and Craig had it set up to rob Michael of the one thousand dollars he had. Michael thought Craig was his friend and he trusted him because Craig was his boss at Bally whoose restaurant. Any more questions?

So, if I am reading that correctly, Michael Steele was looking to purchase $1000 worth of illegal drugs so he could sell them for a profit.

Not to be crewl Judy, but it sounds like two drug dealers/pushers have been removed from the streets.

No Michael was not a drug dealer. If he was he would have been prepared for Robbie and Craig. And he would not have needed Craig help for a setup he would had his own supplier. Everybody gets down on their luck especially young people just starting out. Michael could have called me for money, but he wanted to make it on his own without having to ask his family for help. And actually Robbie was not a drug dealer he was an addict that was also being used by Craig.

Anyway you try to spin it Michael Steele was looking to buy drugs...to sell on the streets...he wasn't carrying $1000 in his pocket to get in the produce business.

Sorry for your loss mom, but the drug world is a tough place. There are now two criminals that are off the streets is the way I look at it.
