    Damn. He was a "John Doe" for three days. Hell, did someone steal his wallet or did he have it on him in the first place?

    From what I hear, he wasn't robbed. Was in Indianapolis on business and went for a run Tuesday night without his ID. Nobody heard from him Wednesday and he was reported missing Thursday morning. Coroner put 2 and 2 together.

    Yeah, I've never taken anything with me when I go for runs. I'm going to start now.

    Jogging can be dangerous to your health.

    Me, too. And, someday, when I get married, I'll put my wife's cell number on my shoes. :D

    this is kind of eerie for me. found out a couple of days ago about a friend's death on facebook. he'd died suddenly on june 29 in another state and had no id on him so they couldn't notify anyone. his worried mom drove from texas to new mexico and found out july 5th.

    I got to know Neil a little bit over the years. He was a great guy. He really was. I found him real personable and just plain nice. We need more people like him in sports.

    It's always sad when someone dies too soon and too unexpectedly.
