Dear Editor,

I would hope the police conduct a thorough investigation including an autopsy on Mr. Smith and that whomever caused his death will be brought to answer for their evil actions and total disregard for another human being.

Mr. Smith was a tortured soul, living life as best he could and didn't deserve to die in such a cruel way, nor be forced to live at the mercy of creatures taking pleasure at the misfortune of another human being. GOD rest his soul and I sincerely hope Mr. Smith has found peace at last.

Editor's Note: Unfortunately, no autopsy was done, so it is unlikely there would be further investigation, although the Clay Police Department has reportedly said they have spent several hours on the investigation.
