  • God bless him. May he Rest In Peace.

  • Via con dios perdido.

  • Rest in peace. I feel for the guy, but I’m a little relieved to hear it was not a homicide.

  • So sad.

  • All right come on there’s more things then to drag this man’s post on to look like you got something to post but post something like dogs attacks cows once again on dyerville loop and ramble about that so people relize there dogs will get shot if they choose to let them run but harm cows!!!

  • Ya a man who took his life and ur wanting to sit there and hold it as one of ur top story’s but little do you think about his family but maybe writing about something that is a problem like dogs attacking cows is more of an issue then this post about how this man took his life but like I said before you only hold post when you need publicity cuz it’s sad for you to hold a post when little do you know it hurt others more then you know but you don’t care and for and wtf to you too for thinking its ok to sit her right along Kim and think it’s ok too, so I think you need to sober up and think about what you guys are putting his other half through like his family or his wife or kids, O ya you don’t care and you can’t say it’s a obituary page this time cuz it’s clearly a press realase for the public so come on you both let this man’s family morn!!!!!!

  • Respect for the man!!!

    Is it like our local news channel keep airing the same thing over and over about a man who decided to rest in peace “No” and ya all don’t have any respect if you think this is cool to drag a suicide page out for his family to morn about when they got everyone to explain to but how about a obituary page I think that’s more thoughtful for his family instead!!!!

    • A) Many people were under the impression this was a homicide. How do I tell them it is not a homicide and ignore telling them what the Trinity Sheriff says it is?
      B) I’m convinced that media is part of the problem of the extremely high suicide rate here in Humboldt because not many people are aware there is a problem here. If we don’t talk about the problem, very few people know it exists.

  • Family respect!!!!!

    Ok so if you all don’t think dogs attacking cows ain’t important well then I’ll just keep shooting them, so far 5 this month and the owner’s gets dead dogs and a bill for the dead cows, remember it’s not the dogs fault it’s the owner’s fault so ya I think this is more of an issue then not letting a man’s family morn and then maybe post a obituary page if they send you one to keep posting!!!!
