    Again another case with no details. The guy died, and we have to wonder how he died, that his death was classified as a homicide. I guess it too hard to provide some details. Who knows it might generate some leads. I like that his fellow homeless guy told Graspy’s niece that there was something wrong with him.

    That more then the police have told us. Maybe, if they provided more details it might jog someone’s memory. Nah, we can’t that.

  2. I pray that someone comes forward, prayers to his family and friends.
