Wow sola, how would you feel if someone said that about your kid. You don't know him as a person beyond what you read on this website

People love to criticize and judge. Hopefully he gets the help he needs so he gets on the right path.

Sola, james Hat and Paul Alexander - you should all be ashamed, who are you to judge? Did you know this boy? A sociopath, really? Have some compassion, maybe he was a troubled kid, and was not able to get the help he needed in this town where so many are so fortunate, but don't care at all about those less fortunate or troubled. I agree with the post on another related thread, it would not be at all surprising if some of the hateful comments on Patch contributed to what happened tonight.

You people are so misguided. The poor kid is dead now, and all you did was make matters worse.

Long time resident is so right . I am appalled that parents/ adults would even speak about someone else's child in such a judgemental tone in such a public forum. I expect it on Facebook among kids not on my local news blog. Just remember you Are adults and parents yourselves and please remember "there but for the grace of god goes my child. "

I never knew the kid and honestly I know nothing about him. But you people have got to look at the bigger picture here. What happened has nothing to do with what you think of him, good kid or bad kid. The fact of the matter is that he died and you have nothing better to do than trash talk him online. Whether you know him or not, or if your business or family was affected by his actions. That has nothing to do with his death and what his family must be going through right now. Take a step back and think about how it would feel to lose your son, daughter, mother, father, sister, brother or cousin and then to go online and see these things that people are posting about the person you just lost. Is it not enough that this kid just lost his life and that his family lost a member, but that they maybe then have to find this and read what you people have said about him as well? Let them grieve their loss and keep your opinions to yourselves and remember that what you put in writing stays forever and it effects more than one person. Your opinion is not always needed. And if you can't say anything nice why do you need to say anything at all.

Nearly all the teenagers in town are coming together. I hope the rest of the town can find it in their hearts to do the same. We will remember him always. R.I.P

Yeah honestly, many of the parents in this town need to get a life and stop wasting their time commenting about how stupid or misguided a kid is. Focus on raising your kid the right way and stop worrying about everyone else's. You just don't know these people's lives, its not your judgement to make, stop feeling so entitled.

I AM a parent in this town and I feel strongly that these so called "adults" should stop their negative posts NOW!! You are way out of line and should think beyond your selfish, senseless, judgmental posts. You have no right to judge ANYONE. It doesn't matter what choices anyone makes, whether good or bad. Honestly, it's none of your damn business. So I ask you to STOP - Stop posting stupid comments now! There is a family out there tonight that lost their son - there are friends out there that lost a friend - there is a community that lost one of their own. My thoughts and prayers are with all you! R.I.P. CM

This is not the time for anyone to sit on their high horse and be judgmental. This. Is. Sad. Focus, briefly, on that. No one is saying he made good choices. But from what I've heard, there was a very worthwhile person in there who has been lost. There are a lot of kids who cared about him, and tried to help him get out of the hole he was digging. They are grieving now. Let's respect that. Sure, he was legally an adult. By a few months. Just remember when you were 18. Could a few random acts of kindness have set him on the right course? Maybe. But one thing is sure - what some people were doing here was effectively cyber-bullying. I have no idea if he saw it or not, but that doesn't make it right. You want to discuss the actions of an 18-year old kid? Do it in private. You want to do something worthwhile? Help kids like Chris get on the right course. Chris is a child of our community. We should all feel that loss.
