I heard about it too. How sad.

btw, be careful if you check his wikipedia entry. As soon as I heard I checked it, it had already been edited and was "appropriate". Then I refreshed my window and... well... unappropriate pictures appeared. Idiots. I'm sure they'll fix it soon though.

It's such a shame, especially because he had a child.

As for the idiots who edited his wikipedia page...I just don't get it. They've now locked the page from editing.

He was only 28 too. So very sad to see a young person lose their life.

I am just stunned and shocked. I can't believe it. His poor little girl. I just watched 10 Things I Hate About You the other day. He was so young and had so much ahead of him.

I heard that today on talk radio on the way home. My first thought was of his little girl... I think she is only two or three.

I didn't believe it until I saw it on the news! Poor little girl, she's so young.
