I've moved from the area but was told an acquaintance was beaten almost to death, but can't find anything in the news. has anyone heard of a man being beaten in Catskill (or near by) in the last few days?

yes his name is Mike, I knew he was brain dead but being kept alive for organ donation, but still can not find anything specific about it. Have checked news stations and such and find NOTHING.

His Name was Mike and he was a good friend he was beeten in the head with a steel pipe. people just don't think anymore, the person who killed him just got out of prison. I hope that he pays for what he did. I can't beleive that this happened and nothing is in the news. He was a good guy and because he visited a X girl friend he shood not be dead now.
Rest in Peace MIKE F.

right there with ya. i've knew mike for almost 30 years. hard to believe he's gone. it's a sad sad turn of events. the world is a strange place these days.

he'll be remembered, and people will be telling funny stories about him for many years to come.

he will be sorely missed.

Mike is my Nephew, and , as posted here, was declared dead this morning as a result of this incident. There are arrangements being made for his funeral in Hudson, NY. There are no details being distributed on the exact nature of this altercation and the legal status of those who have been charged.

Joe,
Yes, it's me in Pleasant Valley. I've not heard from my Mom when the funeral will be. I'm sure we'll be seeing you then next week if you're in Hudson.
I'll try calling you later. I believe I still have your phone number.

I NEW THE PEOPLE WHO COMMITTED THIS HIDEOUS CRIME. FROM WHAT I HEAR ABOUT THE VICTIM ( WHOM I HAD NEVER MET )HE SOUNDED LIKE A VERY NICE PERSON AND PERHAPS DID NOT EXPECT OR UNDERSTAND WHAT THESE PEOPLE ARE CAPABLE OF.
I WAS TRAPPED IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH ONE OF THE INDIVIDUALS AND EVERY TIME THAT HE HURT ME HE GOT AWAY WITH IT. DEYO IS AN INFAMOUS NAME IN CATSKILL AND GREENE COUNTY. IF ANYONE HAD ANY QUESTION AS TO WHY DEYO WAS NOT ARRESTED IMMEDIETLY THAT NIGHT AS WAS PINE, IT COULD BE BECAUSE DEYO'S BROTHER IS A POLICE OFFICER ( NEED I SAY MORE !) PLEASE DON'T THINK FOR ONE MOMENT THAT DEYO'S 911 CALL WAS A SIGN OF COMPASSION OR INDICATION OF INNOCENCE. IT'S THE CLASSIC CASE OF THE PERPERTRATER TRYING TO COVER HIS """. DEYO CARES ABOUT NO ONE BUT HIMSELF AS DOES PINE. THANK GOD STATE TROOPERS STEPPED IN OR ELSE THIS REALLY MAY HAVE BECOME A BOTCHED CASE. DEYO WAS PROTECTED ALL OF HIS LIFE THROUGH ALL OF HIS CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY AND OTHERWISE. JUST A PURE HEARTLESS INDIVIDUAL AND A WACK JOB. ADOPTED BY HIS FAMILY, PERHAPS THEY HAD PITTY ON HIM, ALL THEY DID WAS MAKE HIM WORSE BY COVERING UP AND PAYING HIS DEBTS AND SHELTERING HIM THROUGHOUT ADULTHOOD.
PINE WAS ALWAYS A MENTAL CASE AND ALWAYS A BAD INFLUENCE ON MIKE. MIKE WAS BAD BUT, PINE ALWAYS SEEMED TO BRING THE EVIL ELEMENT. THEY WOULD GO OUT COMMITTING CRIMES AND NEVER GET CAUGHT AND WHEN THEY DID, THERE WAS ALWAYS SOMEONE TO GET THEM OUT. PINE WAS ALWAYS EVIL AND SICK IN THE HEAD. THESE TWO MADE A VERY HIDEOUS PAIR AND IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME. MAYBE IF GREENE COUNTY DID A BETTER JOB HANDLING THESE DEGENERATES, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO COMMIT THIS CRIME AND THINGS LIKE THIS WOULD NOT HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE.IF THEY WILL NOT FIGHT THE CRIME ~ PROTECT AND SERVE ~ THEN THEY ARE ONE OF THEM AND THEREFOR THEY HAVE ENCOURAGED IT.IT IS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY AND THE NAME IN GREENE COUNTY AND IF " THEY " HAVE IT , THEY COULD BE GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER. PERHAPS IT'S TIME THAT THE LOVED ONE'S AND FRIENDS OF MICHAEL FORMICHELLI LOOK INTO THE CORRUPTION AND TAKE A STAND AGAINST THESE RUTHLESS COWARDS TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY OUTSIDE OF THE PRISON YARD. I HATE THEM AND HATED THEM FOR A LONG TIME FOR MY OWN REASONS. I SPEAK THE TRUTH ABOUT THEM 100% AND I KNOW MIKE DEYO LIKE NO OTHER. I CAN SPEAK ABOUT HIS CHARACTER WITHOUT A DOUBT IN MY MIND. I HATE TO GET INVOLVED, I LIKE TO MIND MY OWN BUSINESS BUT, THERE IS CLEARLY A PROBLEM WITH THE SYSTEM. THESE RATTS SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN JAIL 15 YEARS AGO!I KEEP READING THAT THERE IS NO NEWS INFORMATION BEING RELEASED ABOUT THIS CRIME.I KNOW THAT IT'S THE BOONIES AND THEY HAVE TO BUILD THE CASE AND CANNOT RELEASE TOO MUCH INFORMATION BUT, BEWARE IT COULD BE DEEPER THAN THAT.
MY PRAYERS ARE WITH MICHAEL AND HIS FAMILY. PLEASE TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND REMEMBER THAT HE IS NOW FREE AND IN A BETTER PLACE.

Like you I did not know the man that died but you should the only abuse you ever got was made by your false calls to the cops.How many times have you been in trouble with the law? Oh thats right it was your brother that was making bombs in the garage trying to shoot someone,stealing cars,pot,oh yes that great pot he grew at your parents house that they covered up because they were in law inforcement.You always were a trouble maker and your brother.And talk about sick in the head how many times did you have to see a shrink you always made up stories to get att. even when you were a little girl so you shouldn't talk about things you now nothing about.thats why its so hard for cops to do their job because people like you open their mouths about s### that they have no idea about.And you knew these people how long ago?What have they been doing?how many times has Mike been arested since youv'e been out of his life? 0 miss know it all

this is how rumors get started.It sounds like heaven to hell went out with one of them yrs. ago,hasn't seen either of them.How would you know whats been going on in the past 15yrs?Did you know pine just got out of jail? Or Deyo hasn't been in any trouble in 13yrs.Or that Mike F was a known drug dealer?He had a hammer put in his head not long ago over trying to steal someone elses drugs? Please don't turn this into a he said she said case. Know what your talking about first

What is wrong with you people? Michael is dead. It doesn't matter what anyone has done in their past. The facts are that these two monsters chased Michael down and killed him with a pipe to the head. He was running away and they followed him and killed him -- for what? Who cares whether or not Deyo has not been in trouble for 13 years - does that excuse him for killing? Does that mean he "didn't mean to kill Michael"? I don't care if Pine and Deyo were two choir boys - they took Michael's life and need to pay with theirs!!! And as for the rumors about Michael - rumors are rumors - everyone knows the facts and thats what everyone should concentrate on.

Noone that knows Pine would say he is a choir boy but what about these rumors you talk about. It is not right that Mike is dead but he was not such a "good guy". He did get hit over the head with a hammer and likes to hang at the bar and does do drugs. Why is it that when someone dies everyone comes out of the wood work to say all the good things about them. And the most of the rumors about Mike are facts.
