His family reported him missing in MARCH. MARCH!!! WHY was this not in the news?? I see other reports of missing young persons, adults, elderly... why not this young man?? Disgraceful.

STROBE - as you can see from many of the comments and their respective up or down votes, people here really don't seem to care, apparently since he had a record of some criminal behavior 3 years ago. Sad indeed.

Compliments to the Sheriff for this straight forward notice. In contrast to recent similar stuff put out by the SBPD. "Just the facts" will do nicely. Let them take us where they do. No speculation is appropriate.

SHOREBIRD - the definition of "insinuate" is exactly what you said. It means to "suggest or hint (something bad or reprehensible) in an indirect and unpleasant way[.]" You posted something that suggested or hinted ("insinuated") there was something nefarious about this young man's death, hence your comment being deleted.

Why is this posted? Are you trying to insinuate that he died from drugs? If you have any info, please tell the police, not an anonymous comment board. Have some respect please.
