My mom named me and actually it is none of your business. My name is original and It's mine. You can make fun of whatever you want, it just shows how childish you are. I'm proud to be who I am and neither need nor require your aproval. I guess Gerald was a weird name also, what about Mary, Sharon and Catherine....Oh wait those are the names of my aunts and weird, they are plain common names, I bet thats disappointing to you.

Has anyone come across an autopsy report where they found gun powder residue on Mayor Washington's hand? All I've been able to obtain was information on gun powder residue in the wound consistent with close-range discharging of the firearm, but no report of gunpowder on his left hand...I thought it was common for autopsies with suspected self-inflicted wounds to verify gun powder residue on the "trigger hand". And is it true that he was right handed?

Oh and another thing: How common is it for someone to commit suicide by shooting themselves in the chest? I surmised from various other data that the most common target of self-inflicted gunshot wounds was the cranial area (temple, mouth or under the chin to sever the jugular)...

It does not appear that Mayor Washington's death was a cut-and-dry suicide. Nor I do not believe that his death was due to a random act of violence by another black man attempting to rob him as some have asserted. What I do believe is that the officials handling this case & the coroner were far too hasty in cleaning up the scene & ruling his death a suicide. People get shot by other people all the time, even if it's the victim who owned the firearm, and that should not be the primary basis for a suicide ruling.

Just PRAY.

well i have read alot comments on here and I think we should let justice be served. He was a family member of mine and death is a hard thing to deal with. If your constantly knocking who Wash was he will never rest in peace. I do think that the crime scene was cleaned up too fast. but really what can any of us do about it now ? Alot of things say it was not a sucuide. First out you dont make Mayor and then decide to take u life. He would not get out that late at night and do anythingnlike that. He had too much going for him to d that. I don know that his immediate family is truly suffreing. The least people on here can have to say is something postive. you would be surprised how many people get on here. Im sure it would help to hear postive things not negative ones.

I totally agree with you. The investigation was done poorly. Everything they did like clean his truck to give it back to the family. That was dumb if u ask me. Why is it that hes going to get out his bed that time of night after getting a phone call. Im not getting out my bed that time of night unless its someone i know. So go figure. But everyone was trying to link his death to my fathers death becasue they died a day apart and Wash was at my moms house paying his respects. I just think who ever cused this madness to happen will get caught. Becasue if they get away with it once they will try it again.

Had nothing to do with Wash being first black mayor of Westlake. Has everything to do with covering up a massive sex abuse scandal at the high school, with 5 coaches and multiple students. The outgoing mayor, Dud Dixon, had a grandson Trey Dixon having sex with a few young girls at the high school he taught at the time. Five faculty, a goodly number of students had a sex ring going on, and it kind of looks like Trey's Grandpa, the Mayor Dudley Dixon had acquired and was sharing these sex tapes. Washington was about to take office with the intention of forcing police to fully investigate all parties involved. When Wash died, the City Council appointed a former Westlake Coach, roughly the same position as Trey Dixon the rapist. That mayor, married a girl 17 years his junior either during her senior year or immediately after. Cupit can understand the attraction a coach or any teacher can have on a student, and understand the situation, and get a great payoff for an old retired teacher.
