    Any word on COD? I'm guessing it was non-homicicide. Drug OD or suicide possibly.

    Found the following obit that mentions this woman was predeceased by her son James A Chastain Jr. Do we know if this might the same James A chastain? Do we know if he has been accounted for or assumed deceased.

    He was arrested on March 25 and found on April 5, so it's unlikely he had served any time yet. Probably hadn't even had time to make a court appearance--most likely was booked and posted bail, given the time frame.

    Yea it looks like a pretty good possibility except that he would have had to gain weight real quickly tho. Mitch's lips look a lot fuller than 'Brad's' tho.

    Though the picture of Brad is kind of overexposed, it could have hidden some stuff?
