Although tragic, it comes as no surprise. Lot of drug use in area. The hard stuff! The Lake Carey Inn is known as a rough place. Too many packing these days.

Word is circulating that Jerry had nothing to do with buying the drugs. It was one of the friends who bought the (fake) C. Of course, it's always easy to blame the dead guy...he's not around to defend himself against slanderous remarks. Unfortunately, we'll never get the full story as the guys who lived to tell the tale will cover their own asses for sure... "No sir officer, I didn't buy the C. It was my dead friend Jerry who bought it".

As for the lowlifes who live in the house on the causeway, the PA Staties now know who they are as they let a drug-dealing gansta wannabee house sit for them. They certainly have some questions to answer. The first one that comes to mind is this... Why do you feel the need to keep a loaded pistol under a pillow in your house??? For a quiet lakeside community, this is troubling at the very least. Don't think for a second that the MANY good folks at Lake Carey won't do their damnedest to run them out of Dodge.

As for the Lake Carey Inn, it's still a good place. It's always been a rowdy shit-kicker bar with an occasional fight here & there. Just unfortunate and tragic that a well-liked local ran into a drunk cocky punk with a gun there. It could have happened anywhere. It simply happened to be Lake Carey this time. And don't say it wasn't a surprise. It was a goddamn SHOCK!!! And while there may some drug use in the area, there's drug use EVERYWHERE!!! You make it sound like Lake Carey is downtown Harlem... get a f#@&ing clue Bill M from NJ!!!

No it is not a surprize at all! Read the other commments on People who used to go there and do not any more. It is not a friendly neighbor to us at the lake. And is not family friendly at all. So many comments by so many people to stay away from the drama and the drug traffic cannot be wrong! Most are suggesting it be shut down.

Jerry did not deserve any of this. He was the kind of person that would do anything for you. So you all need to shut up. Joshua should of been nowhere near a bar he was on probation. If Joshua was never there and didnt have a gun on him, Jerry would be still here with us today. So dont sit the and pretend you knew him. RIP Jerry
