    so terribly sad, I wonder what the COD was. R.I.P. little one.

  2. Jeanne says:

    I know everyone is jumping on this guy but it could have been an accident and he panicked.
    I too want to see what the cause of death was.

    My daughter knew Matt when he was 13,14. He went to our church and went through confirmation with her. He was a very sweet kid and was never violent. I know he may have had issues with drugs in later life but that does not make him a monster. He was so proud of his new baby girl, posting pictures of her to all of his friends.

    My prayers go out for this beautiful baby girl,now in heaven I believe, and the mother and father.
