Hope that this isn't redundant. He was a recent transplant from Chicago. He was a husband. My condolences to his friends, family, & loved ones. RIP. :( http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_21115 ... moved-from

Same ol' problem with the media. I want to know what happened. Who, what, where and why. The media today usually gets maybe two of the four and I understand there are things we may never find out. I don't think this incedent has been posted here prior has it?? Sounds like he may have been trying to beat out some weather.

RIP
