    I don't think we will ever know if he was pushed into the Train or already dead and then shoved into it, or committed Suicide! This Message is to a local Boy and his Parents, that took Pictures of him lying there beheaded and is now passing them around, and unto the Net! Let me tell you this: you are one coldhearted little Boy to be able to do something like this, this Man had 6 Children and 9 Grand Children, and should any of them come across their Fathers and Grand Fathers Pictures of his dead Body, you will find yourself going into a Juvenile Detention Home, as you have no Heart or Scrupels, you are a future Menace to Society, any normal Child would be horrified, run home to get the Parents, but you got your Cell Phone and took Pictures to pass around boisteriously,you are inhumane and very,very cruel and I assure you that I will turn you over to the Juvenile Authorities!I am the Mother of his oldest Son, who is going through Hell right now, Shame on you and your Parents!
