    Truly sad he was so young still.

    From WFTV:

    Off-Duty Deputy Collapses, Dies At YMCA

    Erickson was one of the first to interview Lee Anthony in 2008. He also interviewed Casey's neighbor, who loaned her a shovel during the time Caylee was missing.

    Erickson was supposed to be a witness during the trial in May. The defense had already taken a deposition from Erickson.

    WFTV Legal Analyst Bill Sheaffer says the statements he already made under oath, will have to speak for him during trial.

    Just wondering if this will hurt the case???

    I don't think it will hurt the case. Eric Edwards was also present during Brian Burner's interview. They have the taped transcript. And they have Brian Burner.

    My condolences to his families and co-workers. We had a coworker die suddenly shoveling snow a few years ago and it is quite a shock.

    I am sorry for this Deputies Family for their loss, but the stations didn't have to connect it to Casey in the headlines..Give him the dignity he deserves not the connection to Miss Wanta be.

    Or at least announce the death, wait a few days and then make the announcement.

    I do wonder what the reactions to the news JB and KC had.

    So very sad. Thoughts and prayers with the friends and family of this brave soul.

    I agree, this awful story should not have immediately been linked to the case but should have stood alone as a memorial.

    -Why is it, if you help someone get away with a crime before they are arrested you are an accomplice...but if you help them get away with a crime after they are arrested you are a defense attorney?

    Casey ALWAYS has to overshadow everything doesnt she...When her child was misssing it was what about me and now the media makes it about her. I am sure this deputy was part of many cases not just Caseys and how dare them take away from this man the respect he deserves with out mentioning a purticular case he was involved in. This announcement should have stood alone and definately have have had a diffrent title. UGGGGGGGGG
    JUSTICE IS COMING HALEIGH AND CAYLEE

    YOU GOT TO LOVE JUDGE STRICKLAND
    At it's core, the defense counsel's motion accuses the undersigned of being a "self aggrandizing media hound". Indeed. The irony is rich.

    Motion granted.
