Mick was one of a kind.
He was a great guy with a heart of gold and
never once in his entire life did he brag
about his boxing, even in his heyday when he
had big time bragging rights...
He was the favorite, in and out of the ring.
Everyone who knew him LOVED him...
He was genuine and down to earth.
He just wanted to take bad a-- kids off the
streets and teach them to use their
aggressions in the ring.
Pray for his family, as they are so
undeserving of devastation.

Since when does the wayne county medical examiner come up with a cause of death in 24 hours??? That never happends. First he was beaten... now he had a stroke... fell down the stairs... took a shower, went to bed, and died. Bullshit. Something isn't right!

the wayne county medical examiner completes examination of the body within 48 hours. the toxicology (blood tests) take about 12 weeks.the doctor saw physical evidence that goodwin died from the result of a stroke. let mick rest in peace. the physical evidence supports the manner and cause of death. at least the family didn't have to wait too long to find out what happened.
