    Friday will be one month since he went missing. Still no details on what happened, wiki says they found him with his legs dangling in a stream with no obvious signs of trauma. I'm really wondering now if the cause of death was some strange, rare occurrence that has no noticeable side effects for the victim. I really hope for the people close to him that they can get some closure and put him to rest soon.
