Public forums allow idiots like Hopeful Romantic to show exactly how insensitive and and boorish they can be. Well done. It's great that a tragedy like this, which has devastated many local families, can allow you to make snarky "funny" comments. I'll embarrassed for you, since you obviously are too stupid to realize what a fool you've made of yourself.

How about the selfish act of one who would expose others to such a awful sight. I too had a relative hang himself in his garage. It's f*cked up. I think it's horrible someone could feel such despair as to kill themself. I think it's completely f*ucked up to make innocent people see something like that. How would you feel if your child had to see that at the park. There's no excuse for that no matter what. Wise up.

Hopeless, you seem to contribute nothing but negative comments, regardless of the topic. This is certainly a case where discretion is more highly valued than a stupid joke. Your reponse to appropriate criticism makes your first post even more obnoxious. If you have suffered due to the actions of others, then why go out of your way to further increase the suffering ? You don't know anything about this situation, but it is fair for all of us to assume that it should not be the topic of a pathetic joke. Wise up yourself. No one is making excuses. They are tellng you rightly to just shut up.

I apologize. It was a terribly insensative thing I wrote. It wasn't funny. It really wasn't meant to be. It was my way of expressing the outrage I feel at such a selfish act. I had a relative hang himself and a good friend shoot himself in his brain. I'm extremely sorry for the pain this person's friends and family are feeling, and will feel forever. I think it's awful people can fell so alone and depressed that suicide is the better option, so they think. I'm still incredibly furious that this person would allow someone, likely a child, to find a body hanging from a swingset or whatever. Am I the only one who is angry about that.

I do apologize for tje insensative and inappropriate comment.

Really? When was the last drug cartel public execution in Heber, UT? That's irresponsible journalism and police work; simply a sensationalistic embellishment. Stick to the facts, folks, and let your readers make their own judgements.

Yeah- like the drug cartel shooting in Heber just a few months ago, which was part of the major sweep reported a couple of weeks ago in the Record and SL Tribune...you need to "stick to the facts"- do you honestly believe PC and Heber are NOT active cartel operations? If so, you're in denial.

That's fine. They can write about that when ITS ACTUALLY PART OF THE STORY. In this case, it's not. It's called journalistic integrity. Once writers start making assumptions it turns into speculation and, in this case, racial profiling.

I see there was an apology... However... I cannot believe that comment was even posted on here to begin with. It makes me sick. I don't care how "selfish" you say it is or what your excuse for your stupidity is, NOBODY should joke around or even say things like that. You say you also had a family member commit suicide, you should know that saying things like that is just wrong and hateful. It is so terrible to see a young life gone too early. Where is the support for our fellow man-kind?? Instead of worrying about if a drug-cartel had something to do with this, or making a disgusting heartless comment, we should be supporting the family that has lost a son, a brother, a cousin, a nephew...and so on. My heart breaks for this young man's family and friends; I cannot imagine what they are going through, I want them to know that they are in my thoughts and prayers.

You've written what many think. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

"Hopeful Romantic" desperately needs lessons in lots of things -spelling (insensative"???), history, economics, civics - must most of all in humanity. Unfortunately, that is something that can't really be taught. A mind that could come up with - AND POST - such a callous and evil thought is not, IMO, capable of remorse, introspection, or personal growth. I hope he moves on to some place inhabited by others of his ilk. Perhaps a pack of hyenas would consider his application for membership, but even one of them is likely to blackball him. Even craven, bloodthirsty predators have some standards that "Hopeless Romantic" fails to meet.

Uh oh! The spelling police are out. I still say hanging oneself in a public park is as selfish as it gets. It's sad this person is gone. Ok, I get it. Again, how would you one sided bleeding hearts feel if your kid found this body?

This is a small town; the people in it feel a great deal of compassion and empathy for each other. We may push each otherís buttons but when a young man dies it is time to take notice. This young man needed the support of the people around him he was obviously dealing with issues he wasnít able to tackle.

I have looked and for this young man the resources in his community are scarce, sure there are churches and places like that, but what he needed was empathy, whatever had him hurting this bad should have been seen and addressed.

No one sees this stuff coming, but to build relationships with each other and making sure the people around you know you will love them is important. I donít know how many times I feel despair over losing loved ones to this. I so want to give people in our community the listening ear they need and the person who just stops by to see if they are ok.

If you have loved ones who have retreated from their friends and family, it is time to make sure they know you love them. If there are events or situations they are dealing with they might not share them with you, but you can make sure they know you love them. In this community people would stop by and check on you if they havenít seen you for a few days and it ďwasĒ normal. Itís time to make sure it is always normal to share each otherís burdens. Donít leave them in despair donít (dis associate) your friends and family.

After they make it through their issues you may need them, and it happens so fast. TODAY is the time to insure your social ties and help and love one another.

completely selfish. how dare you traumatize a stranger or possibly a child with your dead body in public. is suicide something to joke about, absolutely not, yet it is always selfish unless your sick, and the pain will never go away and the quality of life will never return to pain free. how dare someone make people deal with that. coward.

This is suicides mom and almost 4 years later. I was warned not to investigate. I knew he was killed. The police would give me different stories. I have kept quiet because I need to keep my family safe. I know who and how it came about. He was set up. He was passed out when they hung him. They messed up by putting his hat and hoodie back on. His feet were dragging on the ground. So before you judge get all the facts. He is at peace and he would never judge your bad behavior. I pray you never experience losing a child.
