    This website is like a hornet's nest. Really, you people who just sit here and attack with your posts need to get a life. I bet if there were a news camera in your face your comments would change...

    Why is everyone so curious on how this man took his life and why he did it it's not your business and it has nothung to do with any of you. Find something else to do this man has a family whom is suffering deeply.

      Could it be that this story has alot of mystery and intrique to it. The Media should release the autopsy findings. And if it was a suicide,this story will stop. The reason may never be known.

      They used a ton of our tax dollars to search for him, conduct the autopsy, etc. Resources that could have been used elsewhere. So it IS our business to know why.

    Personally, I just wish they would take the "comment" section off of the website.

      Sounds like you need to find something else to do that will keep you occupied.

      Yes, censor everyone when a few say anything that offends some. Brilliant idea.

    Do any of you honestly think the family is coming to the WITN website to read anything that anyone is saying? How bout you all get back to watching your stories.

    You may have it in your rules but I don't ever remeber you using it. I have personally been the grieving family and you did not censor comments. Insensitive comments were posted with other posting asking people to stop. Although I agree with not hurting the grieving......why only for this family and not everyone????
  • by OMG Location: Greenville on Sep 12, 2011 at 07:55 AM
    WITN - when you have ever deleted comments that are insensitve to greiving families????? I guess you must know this family and finally understand how it feels. Have to admit that I am shocked!

    Prayers with this family. They are good people and do not need to read negative comments from people like Jack.

    No one is counting your vote! Thank you Witn for being sensative to this case. There is a family of 3 boys and wife that are also involved and no one is really worried about what Jack has to say
