    Jesus. Find the timeline at the end of the story to be strange, too.

    RIP. Terrible.

    Is that the best picture they could find of that guy?

    I agree. Seems a long time to wait to report somebody missing like that.

    The whole thing sounds odd. According to the story there was somebody else living at the reporter's house as well. Why didn't he report the guy missing?

    And the (presumed) father of the arrested suspects has joined the comment fray on the CNN story. This won't end well.

    This reads like Deliverance: The Sequel

    Crazy story. Crazy dad of the suspects, too.

    Here's his website:

    Maybe he's the kind of guy to just up and go somewhere for a week without saying anything. It took his girlfriend about 10 days to be concerned and another four to go to the police. It's odd and definitely raises a flag, but not improbable.

    I can't think of any pictures of me from the past six months that look any better.

    I just read about this. Apparently these guys were house guests and decided to kill the guy for "Magic Cards" ... what the hell are Magic Cards???? Is that something like tarrot cards??? Murder someone for some cards you can sell????

    I'm under the impression that this fellow was very unique and a bit quirky but very likeable. It may be that his unique personality attracted a couple of "friends" that were much more devious than he realized. Very, very sad. I know it won't happen, but I wish Florida would give those two the death penalty.
