    His family has to live with this for the rest of their lives, his legacy is tarnished and there are those who see his death as a good thing and are showing no compasion. What a sad legacy to leave behind to his child, she’s a direct victim of his actions, poor little girl.

    Woke up to this on the news this AM.. it’s all over all my feeds. I agree 100% with what you said. I feel for his daughter immensely it really is such a sad story and such a waste of what could have been with the right path. I hope our young athletes read this and learn from it, that would be the one and only good thing to ever come of all this tragedy and loss.

    So many lives changed by one man’s poor choices. He’s a perfect example of how life choices can not only ruin your own life but those who close to you. It’s tragic for everyone involved in this case.

    I agree 100% … it’s so incredibly sad all the way around. I’m not going to lie I do believe he either committed the initial crime that he was serving time for or was directly involved. But today’s news hit me as a shock, he was just found innocent on the recent trial and it seems the lawyers thought he had a serious chance with this appeal they had filed. I’m not one much for conspiracy theories but something about this doesn’t seem right. For the record I agree with you and this is a sad sad case that people need to learn from. I pray for his child and his family and those of his victims.
