No matter he was homeless he always was nice he never had bad thing too say bout noone. Its shockin me still that he's passed away. ... where was his family that could have took him in,,, there is no mens shelter in Lenior and I feel that there should be . RIP Wade we love ya my friend

Hey friend,you hit the nail on the head.I have known Michael and Marcus for a long time,Michael was treated like shit by his so called
loving uncle john,and so called brother marcus...dont forget about John taking Michaels guns his daddy left him.Michael didnt have to be homeless he had a home..until his grandma passed away,they even went so far as to have Michael arrested for trespassing on the property after his grandma died and his court papers had that very address on them so good ol john and marcus hope you get what you deserve,when you answer to God for this.

Praying that they catch the monster that did this. This is so terrible to think someone would kill a homeless man.

i dont know either person here . im not judging at all , anything could have happened .

But making an educated guess just going from some of these comments would be that two people(or more) was drinking and partying and a fight broke out.

Ive seen some of my friends go from very mild , good people then flip and try to pick fights after drinking a few to many . Its easy to do and thats the biggest reason i drink alone . you never know who will just flip out when they get drunk .

I despise bars and saloons for this very reason . i dont want to be around 2 drunks why in the h3ll would i pay to sit all night with a 100 drunks .

this is a horrible story . This guy looks like a good guy maybe with some problems . no big deal . i hope they find the person responsible quick like .
