Never heard of him. No big loss. Another Hollywood druggie does himself in. Too bad Paris, Britney, & Lindsey weren't there too.

Guess that DARE program he was in didn't make too much of an impact, huh?

Wow. Some of you people are really nasty for no reason. How did all of YOU get to be so damaged that this is how you react to any person's death? What did this guy ever do to any of you that would cause these vicious comments? For that matter, what have Paris, Britney and Lindsey ever done to any of you to earn such hate? How bitter you all must be.

Even if the worst of you are doing this as 'thread-crappers', just to be negative and mean to get a rise out of other posters, it still signals an empty and and corrupt soul. How sad.

If this is 'the community' around here, I'm very proud to not be a part of it. I would offer to pray for you, but I doubt that would do any good at this point. My prayers are for Mr. Renfro and his family.

My thoughts exactly. Every single story that appears it is just picked apart. How sad. Get a life people or count your blessings that you are not in that position!

Thank you for the previous posts. I think that EVERY DAY when I read these on the Trib. How can people be so mean and so judgemental? I certainly hope nothing like this ever happens to someone you love. Prayers with the Renfro family.

It's a shame a life was cut so short. Brad Renfro had talent and unfortunately he couldn't leave the drugs alone. It's most likely drugs/alcohol was the cause of his death based on his history. But I am going to wait until what the coroner has to say before I blame his history for his death. All these negative people's comments are just a sign of jealousy. They wish they had the opportunities Brad Renfro had and the talent he had. They probably feel if they were famous, rich, and good looking they would never do anything to loose it all...most people say that, but doing it is another thing. Prayers go out to the Renfro family
