Travis was a wonderful person, he was always fun to be around, and he could find humor in any situation, trust me. I do hope that this goes out and finds his fiance being ok. We love you Theresa and we will always be here for you. We miss you and our hearts go out to you. Also, out to his daughter, which will never know her Daddy because someone was too greedy for money. Let that be a lesson to us all.

RIP Travis, you will always be missed.

Scott spent nearly 7 years in prison for ripping me off...used my name to establish credit while I was stationed in Europe and deployed for Desert Storm...took out cash advances against the bogus accounts...ran my credit up to the tune of over $56K...upon my return from overseas, I couldn't even get a Sears card...took over two years to fix the credit snafu and cost me over $10K...my rent was excessive; couldn't find a decent house due to the bad credit...I'm not surprised to hear he's involved in some other shady activity...Travis was NOT his brother...I think they met in prison...

I am not surprised that Scott took the coward’s way out. He did manipulate a lot of people and if you got caught up in his web he would get ya. Travis was a good guy I have photos of him holding my daughter. Scott tried manipulating Travis for many years, the only thing that kept Travis in the web was promises of freedom and life without judgment. I remember when Travis beat the hell out of Scott for making sexual remarks and showing his true colors at the lake. The reason Travis has paid so dearly with his life is because he would not give into Scott. And I also feel sadness for Scott's family because of his choices in life. Rogerinphx is right on, Scott Hartline was a snake. Sheri should be ashamed, she knows exactly what Scott was really like. She just chooses to free herself from any blame she may feel.

Scott was a generous man. He was brilliant and helped people from all walks of life.

He loved Travis and his family. He was devastated with Travis' murder.

As far as the life insurance policy... every business partnership I know they carry life insurance on each other.

Scott was a non-violent man. He wouldn't even go hunting. He loved life. He loved family. He had been to prison for white collar crime. It was not violent. This is where he assisted other inmates to get back into society. This is where he might have chosen to assist those with less pure motives.

For those of us who knew Scott he will be missed. He was loved. I'm so sad that he was so sad to take his own life. He probably feared 'the appearance' of a conspiracy since one of the accused he had just taken in under his roof to give him a leg up. Scott was smart enough to realize the 'appearance' did not look good and he was already quite distraught over losing Travis that he decided to end it.
That is probably the dumbest, most ignorant thing I've ever heard. Do you actually believe what you just said? My word, you must be a complete dumbass. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say you're most definitely a Hiliary Clinton supporter. Just straight up talking out of both sides of your mouth. LMFAO!! I still can't believe you actually wrote that dumb-shit comment and believe your own bullshit. Ignorance must be such a blissful trait to have. I don't know how you could ever get from point A to point B. Damn, you are really dumb. I'd say, good luck in life, but you are fuct. They say you should never go full-retard. I'm afraid you must have been born with only a few, if any, brain cells. At the very least, you are a poster child to receive disability and live off the government for the rest of your blissful life. Or maybe you can take after your roll model Scott and end it all like only a coward could ever do. SMH!! R.I.P. biatch....

I'm going to make the assumption you never graduated from college, let alone high school? You may still be in-luck, I have heard there is a program called "Hooked-on-Phonics". It is supposed to teach English spelling and grammar. I'd suggest you should really look into that.

#1 Please look into "Hooked-On-Phonics".

#2 Who the hell is tom (sic)? His name was Travis.
