Tanner Barton was a wonderful young man who was quick to smile and brought joy to most all he came in contact with. I am glad to have known him and will keep the memory of his smiling face forever. His death is premature and a reminder to live life as Tanner did, one day at a time never taking yourself too seriously but taking the welfare of others around you very seriously. He was loved by many and touched so many more. The numerous rumors and written words surrounding hs death are disturbing and for the most part untrue. The media jumped the gun (what is new) and was way too quick to point to their own conclusuions regarding Tanner's death. It is my sincere hope that each and every media outlet, including but not limited to this one, whom has reported his death and the circumstances regarding it will also be quick to set the record straight now that the Howard County Cornor's findings have been concluded. Alcohol, as first stated, did NOT play a role in Tanner's death and preliminary autopsy results indicated no illegal or illicit drugs in Tanner's system! Why is it that everyone, including the local, metro and state news, jumped to the conclusion that Tanner's death was the result of alcohol and drugs? It seems we have become a nation bent on discrediting our youth and point fingers; we jump to conclusions, before the truth is revealed. It is no wonder that the media can no longer be trusted. They are eager to tell us who did what wrong but slow to celebrate the truth and life of those who strive to make the world a better place like Tanner Barton did. As a journalist I am disgusted. Get your facts straight before you forever leave an indelible impression. Please set the record straight!
