GQjock saidI dunno .... but I think he committed suicide before he was falsely accused
It's all very sad of course but the reason Reddit did the story was because he had been reported missing prior
The News agency should definitely be responsible for what they wrote but I don't think his suicide was because of the story
^^Agreed^^ He was missing for over a month and had not taken his keys, wallet. etc. with him. The posters they had around town said that he might be suicidal. Tragic end for a young man, but it is highly unlikely that he was still alive when all this went down. (The part of Providence where he went missing and near where his body was found is heavily populated, so it's really unlikely that he was alive and hiding for a month then killed himself.)
At the same time the members of the media who rushed to finger a series of brown skinned people as red meat for the media ought to be fired at least. Truly one of the most disgusting displays of media hype in recent times.
