  1. I would like to know why the GBI and the news media is not aware of this case. I would like to know why would a person committ suicide near the end of their term and not the beginning. I would like to know why this case is being held in the prison walls but not in the public eye. I would like to know why was it done.

  2. We need justice for our family. What are y’all hiding we really needs answers. He was excited about coming home.
