He had a friend ,& hopefully others, who cared enough to look in on him. So sorry to read about this ; he was still young, 42. You never know what someone is dealing with…


No foul play but there’s been a police officer stationed outside all day today (Friday)….


They don’t suspect foul play.

Suicide isn’t considered foul play nor would an overdoes.

They’res a good chance that the cops are posted there in hopes of making contact with the next of kin.

I was just speaking with a guy from that home on mon/tue. not sure if it’s him. We were discussing what he was going to plant in the front yard.


I bet some foreign developer will demolish the house and build a 10 story building with ‘affordable’ units
