A true testament to his person is that the homeless that he fed every week after having a Wall street job, came to his wake, but did not want to dishonor his fam by coming in because of their dress.
Blink...I understood all that about the BAC...but I could have sworn I read somewhere that LE said there wasn't one...when in fact there WAS- it was just basically negative for alcohol. Sorry for the confusion. You sound tired, dear Blink. Why don't you rest...at least for a while. We'll still be here when you need us.
Thank you, and you are right, weary- I guess I think everyday is the day that we might uncover the truth. This is a marathon and not a sprint, I keep forgetting that. Thanks for reminding me in such a gentle way.
Please take care of yourself Blink. These things take time and it ain't over till the fat lady sings...I don't hear any singing..so we will continue a methodic pace to work this case.
Still standing here with you.
I'm still here too. I don't know what I can contribute but I want you to know you and all of Mike's family and friends are in my thoughts and prayers daily.
DD-I know as a Mom, we all say this about our kids, but he was truly a good soul , unless he tells me to personally, I will never give up on knowing what happened to him
me too, I'm still here with you !
For whatever it's worth, I was off work yesterday and spent most of my day reading the first thread. When it came to the first post of Mike's death..............My heart skipped a beat and I screamed NO....
Even though I had already knew the outcome from reading the second thread.
From the first thread, most of my questions have been answered. Love these WS's!!
I will keep reading and scratching off my questions that I have not seen answered and then I will post my questions.
Blink: I am so sorry that you have lost such a good friend. I am also thinking that "Mikes" family is blessed to have such a good friend that wants all questions about how and why Mike died..........answered.
I truly believe that you will find the answer(s) and be able to tell the family how Mike died when you are satisfied you have investigated every angle that you think needs to be investigated.
Please know that all of us will be here for you. Also, please accept whatever the truth leads you.
p.s. If I have said anything to offend you..........sorry.
Blink, in catching up on another case I was reminded of Chris Jenkins. He was last seen leaving a bar and found dead 4 days later. LE initially wrote his case off as an accident or suicide because of his BAC. It took four years, but with the help of a PI, Chris' family was able to have his death ruled a homicide. Here is a link to an article about Chris. I read the below quote and thought of you and Mike's family.
The Jenkins weren't satisfied with the assessment of the case made by police "because we knew Chris," his sister, Sara Lightner, told The Early Show co-anchor Julie Chen. "That's all we needed to know. There were some signs on the body and there are too many things to get into now, but more so than anything we knew Chris, we knew his character and we know this was not a choice of his."
Here is his rememberence page with contact info. His family might be able to help you somehow.
Great post Suzi...sometimes I begin to think maybe it's just me...maybe it's just the way they said...but, maybe it's not.
from the other thread:
I'm posting it here as well for 2 reasons: whether or not this could be related to Mike's case, it should show NOT to take things as they are handed to you by LE, AND when I started researching these cases because of Mike, I started a notebook of my research and I have notes on all of these men and more, questioning a connection , to see this now is PROFOUND.
When I watched that video I was stunned by some similarities to Mike's case. The person last seen going in one direction, the body found in an opposite direction, the leaving of a cellphone or wallet as evidence.
Just seems to be alot of similarities to Mike's case. Maybe those detectives need to know about Mike. Also maybe the parents in NYC of the boy last seen in a bar there would also talk with you.
Hey Blink - Still thinking of Mike and wishing you well. I've been in and out lately, still following along, but not much time to post. Still hoping for the truth and some clarity for Mike, his friends and family.
You rock, DD
certainly Brian Schaffer's case comes to mind...
This is a comments section on an article for Mike, hopefully it is ok to post- feel free to weigh in-?? Need the numbers, it's all locals
