I think this is a major cover up...the whitey took that poor man's life. This is a case of the white man not wanting to see a smart, intelligent black man succeed. I hope the truth comes out & those punk bitches are found out!!!!!

I don't think he committed suicide, I think it is a cover up.

Sorry that the death came at the time where Mr. Washington became mayor. I hope that the police do a detailed investigation our family personal know what a short investigation is. We had one in Savannah Georgia this past September 9-10, 2007. We do not want to beleive that our (WHITE) loved one would take her life and felt that they did a poor job to make sure of it. No one wants to think that a loved one will take their life and that what ever is troubling them the could just say. It has been the hardest thing for us to except and we still have problems because we do not see he daughter because her husband and family does not want us to. That is just as hard as not having our loved one. I do hope and pray that you get what you are looking for. Stick together as a family and you shall overcome anything and keep God on your side. Power of Prayer!
I do think that no matter how anyone looks at it you should put the BLACK/WHITE thing behind you. Keep praying and that is will get you through the tough times.

I grew up in Westlake louisiana and am white, I knew the Mayor and his family and liked the mayor, if I was still a resident there I would have voted for him like I did for the then chief of police Gary Stitch Guillory. I don't know what happened to Wash but what ever did ,we have to let the authoritites fiqure it out ( Stitch Guillory is a man of integrity and honesty and will not let anything be covered up. We can not and should not turn this into a race issue, like the person from california is trying to incite, Wash was a good man and his good name does not to be tarnished with such thing's. God bless the Washington family.

i beleive that this was a coverup and someone shot the mayor. i am (White) citizen and feel that someone did not want a black mayor and killed him. This is a crying shame and can understand why his family is outraged.

Why has this story not gotten more press? I don't want it to be racial, however: it seems that this story is not getting enough attention.
We need and want answers now!

I knew Wash personally. I worked with him at the Conoco Refinery. Wash was a man of high integrity and love for God and others. I am one of those who find it hard to swallow that Gerald would take his life. If you knew Gerald, you would be saying the same thing. I do not know what happened, but sadly, racism is still very real in Louisiana. I saw and heard it first hand. (I am white.) We have to stop the ignorance of such thoughts, words, and deeds. My prayers go out to Gerald's family and the community.

Whites voted this man, a black person, into this office, in a of a city of mostly white, over a white person. He was in Mossville when his body was found, an area of 95% black, so lets not point fingers until we know what happened.

Notice that the people who knew Mr. Washington best , his co-workers and family , all speak of a good , helpful , intelligent man. Washington was a true believer in equality , not special tratment. I was proud to work with him and request that people slow down and think. Listen to the known facts , and not participate in wild false rumors. You only dishonor an honorable man when you spread such ignorance and hatred.
