I would like to know how something like this happens. What did he hang himself from? What are the autopsy results? Why wasn't there a note? Why was he in general pop when he was federal? Where were the guards? Why are there rumors of threats and transfers? What do the cameras show? Why was it so long before people were notified? Sioux Cities jail has one of the worst reputations now I can see why regardless of what the charge was Troy was a beautiful person who was one of the most giving people I have ever met I find it hard to believe his last act was so selfish. Also I find it very irresponsible of our press and authorities to let this happen without doing something about it. Not to mention every article mentions his charges which seems like they are trying to minimize the seriousness of the situation. I understand they are afraid of a lawsuit but they should have thought of that before they allowed this to happen.

I agree with confused that he was a beautiful person but his last action was NOT selfish!!! people who take their own lives firmly believe that this is better for all other parties. Just because it hurts us, in their mind the other result would be more painful. No one wins as I would either have had to explain a long prison sentance to our son but am not looking forward to having to explain his method of death (putting off as long as possible). Troy was anything but selfish even in his last action as he was thinking not of himself but his family and son.
