    Sounds like foul play via the Tulsa police. Maybe the dude knew something he wasn't supposed to know.

    Do you ever actually vet any of the crazy shit before you post it?

    The story you link to is no longer available, and for good reason!

    IT WASN'T TRUE !!!!

    On Facebook the Dallas Voice admits they did no fact checking on the story submitted by a free lance writer.

    According to the Dallas Voice post, the Tulsa PD "continue to refuse to investigate this suspicious death, despite the families repeated pleas that they do so,". The Dallas Voice post also claimed that no autopsy was performed and the "body was immediately cremated at the request of the police, due to his HIV status." The author of the piece never spoke to anyone at the Tulsa PD, including Sgt. Walker who is mentioned in the post.


    Toby Jenkins with Oklahomans for Equality said they conducted their own investigation and found that the man died of natural causes.
    Jenkins said: “We’re so disappointed that a media source that identifies itself with the LGBT community didn’t do more research and investigation and even reach out to us in Tulsa,”. Jenson also told Fox 23 Longoria's own doctor told him she was misquoted by the Dallas Voice post. She believes the man died of natural causes and signed the death certificate.

    The Tulsa PD released a statement that reads in part:

    "Mr. Longoria’s death was not suspicious in nature therefore it was not further investigated. The Tulsa Police Department does not investigate deaths in which there are no signs of foul play and the individual’s attending physician will sign the death certificate. The Tulsa Police Department responds to many natural deaths in which the attending physician signs the death certificate and there is no autopsy conducted.

    Sgt. Walker and other members of the Department have spoken with the family members of Mr. Longoria several times to provide information reference area funeral homes, the medical examiner’s phone number as well as providing them with the victim’s obituary."

    The Oklahoma State ME's Office says that Mr. Longoria died of complications of chronic ethanol abuse and foul play played no part in his death. The ME's office also pointed out that law enforcement agencies have no authority to order the cremation of a body, saying that the body was released for cremation by the ME's Office per the family's request through arrangements made with the funeral home.


    You want so much to push your batshit crazy ideas, including that everyone is anti-gay that you don't even bother to find out what you're posting.

    Too bad you, shybuff and SB, didn't stop to think how many conservatives out there believed this to be true as well.

    Soooo not clever and downright false. You really are trying to get me to engage in an online fight with you, aren't you.

    The Metta8 unit simply copies and pastes a headline and a link.

    You are very well aware that I contribute actual discussion here (which you apparently wish to suppress) and which is what a discussion forum is supposed to be. It is NOT supposed to be a place filled with "copied and pasted" headlines and links.

    Oh, come-on, it was very clever, and VERY true. Even if I do say so myself. You walked right into that. Because it's exactly what YOU often do yourself.

    Just like calling me drunk when I post things here you don't like. And I haven't said anything as personally nasty about you, as you have about me. But now YOU'RE the wounded party? PUL-LEESE!!!

    But hey, just do what RJ Admin told me to do when you think you're getting attacked - put the other member on Ignore. Solves all your problems.

    "It is NOT supposed to be a place filled with "copied and pasted" headlines and links."

    Really? Is that stated in RJ TOS/TOU? Are you the new site Moderator? Is this rule suspended when YOU do it?

    Give it up - you haven't got a leg to stand on with this argument. Better to withdraw to fight a better battle. Or better yet, just withdraw, period. And put me on Ignore, as Admin suggests we do.

    You're being ignored SB, and it appears you can't handle that by your repetitive digging. icon_wink.gif
