  • I honestly just want you all to know how disgusting you are to this world, you should be ashamed of yourselves, this could of been your mother, father brother sister or even child! Have some sympathy because this world is far from perfect & everyone of us have our own flaws but that doesn’t mean think that way apon others, it’s so so how you adults are talking, in life you attract what you are and boy are you guys some nasty humans. I will pray for each one of you guys & hope god forgives you all… it’s sickening what this world has come to……

  • I sure hope this young man wasn’t a diabetic who went into the woods with low blood sugar. It happens and 20 year olds do have medical issues. Something kind of similar happened with our 24 year old.

    Remember people. Others may be dealing with issues none of us know about. This to include our first responders, the victim and the victims loved ones and friends.

    To the deputies who were there. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all. I know, I do my fair share of bashing of our officers at times. I spoke to a deputy’s spouse today, this type of case is very hard for even our officers to swallow.

    To the loved ones and friends of the deceased. Many thoughts and prayers go out on the loss of your loved one/friend. It is so very hard when you lose a child. Been there, done that. Ours too was bashed for being a druggie, to include it being said when he was found non responsive that it was an overdose and that a “meth lab” blew up in his face (a former deputy made some very bad assumptions. Of course a type 1 diabetic has needles.). Fact of the matter was, no drugs whatsoever were in his system. It was his diabetes that took his life which we found out only after the autopsy was preformed. That was the hardest thing in my nearly 60 years of life that I ever had to deal with.

    People are so fast to cast judgement without the facts. Those types are what are a huge part of the problem with our world today.

    May this young man rest in peace and may his family find some sort of comfort during one of the hardest times in their lives.

  • any update on this Tom?

    Thursday, 11 January 2018, 3:58 pm
  • I don’t understand where half of you idiots come up with what you say. Where does it say anywhere in the post that it has to do with drugs? You assume because he was found in the woods he’s an addict? It could be a number of things he could have been homeless, or her was kidnapped, there are so many scenarisas to what could be, so until Tom updates us and let’s us know what happened, how about you keep your nasty rude uncalled comments to yourself. That is someones child, grandchild, possible husband and father. You never know if it could be one of yours, you wouldn’t want someone speaking I’ll of your family member. Have a little respect someone lost their live and that impacts alot of.people, you inconsiderate low life scumbag. Prayers to the family And everyone involved

    Thursday, 11 January 2018, 2:46 pm
    • They were probably on drugs…I bet they were found with the needle still stuck in their neck.

      Thursday, 11 January 2018, 7:31 pm
      • We’re you there? Pure speculation your making.Do you have kids? If so if this was a relative of yours how would you like to read speculated comments.And if it was a addict.Addiction is a disease worse then cancer.Why can’t people be nice.Pay respect to the family of this young man who lost his life at a young age of 20.How would you like speculating on you.And that’s what it is rumors created and believed by idiots.Let it be.I’m sure there’s a grieving family out there

  • Either a junkie or he dined at Chipotle – whichever his begging days are over……….sheriff won’t lift a finger to investigate unless he can get his hands on some cash or some saleable evidence

    Thursday, 11 January 2018, 6:59 am
    • Goback, you are stupid, this young man is dead, unless u know him, how the hell do u know anything.? I hope the sherriff finds out his identity and am sorry for the family who just lost a child no matter the reason. Shame on your uncaring soul.

      Thursday, 11 January 2018, 12:50 pm
      • Funny how when a Sheriff does something wrong everyone bashes them, but if a junkie is found dead in the bushes everyone “sends prayers” …I wonder if there was a “WiLL WeRK fer DrUGz” cardboard sign nearby.

        Thursday, 11 January 2018, 7:42 pm
  • This is someones child no matter what you think, at least be courteous and thoughtful enough to remember that this is someones baby boy.It shouldn’t matter if he was a meth head or anything else. Just because you see someone making an asshole comment does not make it right for you to do the same! Don’t be a follower, be a leader!! Prayers for the family of this young man.

  • Well given the proclivities of some of the Sheriff’s Department officials I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that it wasn’t on Sheriff’s deputy or his their kid you know all we have to do is take a look at some of the Hernando County Sheriff’s Department people themselves and what about our illustrious Sheriff, there’s nothing suspicious about a 20 year olds death? Really you f****** moron to you there’s nothing suspicious because you were placed in this job you didn’t have to earn it you piece of garbage allowing the citizens of this County to be found dead and to you it’s not a big deal and it’s not suspicious wake up Sheriff you are beautiful county is going to hell in a handbasket and you’re the one doing the crocheting. If you would stop doing your stupid Manhunt Mondays and start focusing on caring for your citizens we all be able to sleep a lot Sounder instead of all of us who are in the know sleeping with our doors triple bolted booby trap windows and guns under our pillows because God knows Hernando County Sheriff’s Department can’t protect us because we need protection from them let me see we have the masturbating deputy then we have the other lieutenant and his road rage beating up people incident and then we have one of our other detectives barricading himself in his home yeah it appears John Q public needs protection from the Hernando County Sheriff’s Department! I mean seriously it seems like the animals are running the zoo and good old Sheriff knee high is the head monkey. I’d say it’s time for all Hernando counties sane citizens to take back our County and kick these quote unquote officials to the curb where they belong if not jail where most of them should be it’s pretty hypocritical that the sheriff allows these behaviors from his deputies and Detectives but yet would arrest the average citizen for those same in fractions I think it’s time we will pointed a finger at the sheriff and said you know what buddy this is supposedly your town clean it up and start with your own Department first John Q public is on the attack and we want everybody’s heads on a pike that’s not going to take care of this County we’re cleaning up the trash and we’re starting with the Sheriff’s Department

      • Let’s hope yoyo are right, And it’s not an innocent person who has been missing from their family. Let’s hope that it wasn’t an innocent person who was murdered, beaten, raped or anything else because you just assumed some horrible things (I’d on face he was just an innocent victim). Use your head before you post without the facts.
