My husband and I live a couple blocks from the car was and he was at the car wash when it happened. He called 911 from the house and was very shaken if not in shock by what he saw when leaving the car wash. We returned to the sight shortly after the police arrived and prayed for the young man and asked God to give strength and comfort to his extended family as they deal with this terrible loss.

I, too, extend my apologies to the family for offensive and hurtful remarks made by others on this forum, at a time when you are already suffering from the untimely loss of your son, brother, cousin, and friend. My neighbors and I extend our deepest sympathies to your family.

My advice to you about reading this forum: don't. Avoid it. Don't let the inane rantings of uncaring people deepen your wound and prevent your healing. Look through pictures and jot down notes to put with them...good times, funny quotes, etc. Stay off this forum and keep your fondest memories of Randy in your hearts - and comfort and support one another as you move forward.

yea i have somthing to say to anybody on here leaving comments like this is some kind of joke, that guywas my 20 year old cousin randy, we are both from maryland he moved to a few different places though.dont u ever treat somthing like this like a f*** joke cuz it could be somone you know one day. and yes york county is a sewer full of white trash who treat life like it dosnt matter, yes just like the ppl on here making jokes thanks proving my point f**** dumb hicks.
Not all on here are ignorant of other's feelings. I don't know you or the young man who chose to take his life, but my heart goes out to those who loved him. I pray God be with you all and give you the strength you will need to get through these dark times. I once lost someone to suicide. I know that nightmare after and how hard it was to get over thinking what if and why. In time I came to realize sometimes we just can't control what happens, and I was able to smile remembering that one I loved and the good memories we shared. May God help you all to be able to so as well.

I feel great about myself!!! I live the day to day struggle without a hand out I'm not selfish or too cowardly to live my life no matter what is thrown at me. I've had an immediate family member attempt suicide a few times and it failed. Everyone has family and maybe your cousin should have gotten help or maybe you should have seen the classic symptoms of it and reached out to him. Your feelings are not my concern and I'll post as I please since it's my right to.

The best are the ones that kill themselves and make it look like an accident. Saves the family a lot of heartache. For instance my friend killed himself by driving his ATV off a cliff in Poe Vally,,,looked like an accident, but he had emailed me earlier of his plans. Anyways, the family viewed it as an accident and much grief was spared. The cruelest are the ones that shoot themselves or hang themselves in their homes, then let the kids come home froms school and find them.

Dude... Officer... try "reeks" not "reaks", and "past" not "passed". Three periods in a row form an ellipsis (...) not 2 (or 4!) commas.

Nobody listens to a word you write either, because you didn't say them, you wrote them. We read what is written, we listen to what is said.

You may be a grade-A officer (hey it's possible), but you should really leave the spelling and grammar corrections to those who can use correct spelling and grammar.

I'm citing you for impersonating someone fluent in English.

Some of the people in York and on this blog make me ashamed to say I'm from York. I continue to be disgusted that people use this forum to be absolute idiots, racists jerks, and know it alls. How DARE you comment about this person in such an insensitive manner. I do NOT know this man or his family. However, I'm horrified that people would joke about his death or guess things they have no idea about. You horrid little creatures. Heaven forbid (nope, I'm not religious, so save your breath) that someone you know or love EVER die. Think for a second if this was about your mom or brother or son or friend.
I am born in York and have lived here my entire life. I teach in York, so believe me, I see all your garbage about teachers also, but I really don't ever care. It is usually to see how amazingly uneducated you can be while complaining about everything under the sun. However, when you belittle families by being a jerk on here, just ONCE, for a SECOND put yourself in the shoes of people that love and knew these people. How in the world would you feel.
If you hate York so bad, and you think people living here are morons, get out. Those of us calling this town home (born here or moved in) really don't need to see your garbage. Just remember, someday you too will lose someone and good grief, grow up!
I didn't re-read this for typos and yep I'm mad. So, before you criticize my teaching abilities or my spelling - spend your time volunteering at a suicide hotline or a grief counseling agency and see if you would still be such heartless jerks.
My deepest sympathy to the family of this man and my apologies for the behavior of the people on here. Please know that the masses in this county are not so horrible.
I am quite stunned to see this level of compassion for a fellow human being.
I wish people had exercised their compassion when the Springettsbury cop killed that Wrightsville man.
Shot him in the back and claimed it was self-defense while the man was in police custody.
The District Attorney at the time ordered the jailhouse video tape of the incident "sealed".
All very fishy to me.

there is something very wrong with you people its truly shocking how you treat things, you give police officers a very bad name acting like suicide is a joke very childish and sick stop acting like your in middle school and act like decent human beings , its not a joke that boy was someone's child / family member you really need to realize your not 12 anymore because there really is no excuse for a adult to act like that , a sane one at least.

Being nosey?? When it's in the news??? Doubtful!
Assumptions made about my gender??? Sweety I'm a female. I have a heart big enough to swim in. I help people on a daily basis. I've taken care of others family when they refuse to. I have always put my family before myself. I make sure others needs are met before my own. My statement wasn't made while laughing. It was a generalized statement that I will not apologize for. Truthful at that. Easy clean up. It was courtesy of him to do so. Your best bet is to quit reading the posts. This is a topix forum not an obit page. Well wishes and prayers should be posted there. This is where us ignorant folks dwell. Oh and furthermore I'm braisen enough to say anything to anyone since I lack a brain to mouth filter and have never had my ass whooped!

to those who have never dealt with depression or experienced it themselves, it is nearly impossible to understand why or how someone can get to such a point that this man was at. So the comments about ; why didn't he get help, why didn't he call someone, why didn't he just "buck up" like everyone else does, or that he was selfish by doing this- are completely irrelevant. Depression is a very real physical disease, even tho it is called a mental one. The actual chemical components in the brain of a depressed person are changed, they are not the same as a person who is not suffering from depression; and yes sometimes medicine and therapy does work- but sometimes they don't. He was not selfish, nor a coward, he was in pain and he was not able to think correctly. He didn't make this decision- his disease did. And the family is in NO WAY to blame. Of course he didn't realize the hurt he was going to cause them, nor did he intentionally want to hurt them - he was not able to think in a normal way because of this disease called depression. I urge the family to seek counseling, grief issues are very different for survivors of a suicide by a loved one. I have also had to deal with this issue, and i just want the family to know that the loss of your loved one in this manner is not your fault, and the cause of death does not matter. Had he died in another way- your pain would not be less. Again- i am so very sorry.

You could use more than a lesson or two in public relations. You reek poor attitude. It wouldn't hurt to show some respect for other people, especially your elders. Why should you care what other people think? You don't have to. But you would be wise to learn to express yourself in a proper manner in written word if you want anyone to pay attention to what you have to say. If not, you come off just looking stupid. If you want to run with the big dogs, learn how to run little girl.

Honestly it is a shame, my heart goes out to the family. However I must add that the assclown running the Queen Street Anderson Carwash could drive anyone to suicide. Please do the world a favor and quit. Be a bum or a carney at some freak show. Your personality would be perfect for the job. And a wonderful day to you Sir!:-)

Frankenstein, you are completely correct about the owner of the Queen Street Anderson Carwash. I tried to wash my patrol car there and he said it was too muddy, so I arrested him but he liked it in jail...if you know what I mean. I too am sorry for the family in this incident.
