    So they should interview his friends (or so-called friends) to get clues into what led to his demise.

    Sad to see that a young promising youth had had to go this way……to the cretics of “sadden’s” writing this is not the way!!!
    To sadden and other people who uses those shorten means of writing, i know this is widely practiced but such is the effect that it can have on you. Since you’re use to doing it, it becomes part of you that when you have to write properly you dont notice the shortened words. Let it be a leason and change it from now. Good day.
