OK, the State Police Report is out now. Read it! It is a shame that this could not be accepted for what it was, a depressed man with problems who took a permanent solution to temporary problems. Now all is known and it is without question! Very sorry to hear it. Seems like this man was liked by all who knew him!

The man was well-liked by blacks and whites, but the family kept pressing the issue. NOW - everyone knows the whole story. It is not a surprise to most people...this is a small town and everyone knows pretty much everyone. As a result, that family has pushed away many friends "Wash" had. They wanted to "decide what was to be released to the media" -- Whatever -- if they would have just shut up about it, all of the dirty little secrets would have been swept under the rug and the entire North American continent would not have known every detail. "They asked for it, they got it" is how I look at it. That family trashed the names of good people in this area -- people who were trying to protect them.
Where exactly can you look to view the State Police Report???

Leaves absolutely NOTHING to the imagination! I am amazed at the fact that so many people connected with this family told out and out lies during all of the hoop-la as this played out in the media across the country, LITERALLY. Now it is all in black and white for everyone to see. Sadly, they will still try to discredit those who did their jobs. The bad thing is, the more they talk, the more ignorant they appear. I understand that no one wants to believe a loved one has taken their own life...I have had to deal with that myself, and it is a very hard pill to swallow. Sooner or later, you have to move on.

It all boils down to the insurance money.
Homicide: The family gets the money!
Suicide: The family doesn't get the money!
That is why the Washington family is pushing for Homicide.

No -- you are wrong on this one...the family got the money because he had been retired for more than 2 yrs.-- regardless of "cause of death" -- Conoco has a type of insurance that pays out -- as do several other plants in the area. However, had it been from anything other than suicide, the payout would have been doubled!

I think I'm right > I'm talking about other Life Insurance policies, besides the Conoco policy.
