The four others in the tent were already sleeping as the man lay down beside them. When the owner of the tent returned to check on his guest at 2 p.m., he found his body cold. A heroin overdose is reportedly suspected.

Instead of hating a band that most here seem to truly know nothing about, shouldn't this space be used to mourn the loss of someones son. I understand we all come from different walks of life, but anyone think maybe its this lack of compassion in everyday life that's causing people to turn to harder drugs. Instead of expressing sympathy people are spewing hate and ignorance. In my opinion the people posting these are what is wrong with society as a whole. I hope he haunts all you haters. MMWCL
