    Now there's an unfortunate typo: "…scheduled to appear alongside his dead…"

    Too bad, though. So hard on a parent.

    People really should read what they write BEFORE they put the story out. One sentence he was 25, the next he was 24, then they spelled his last name wrong. Then they say he was scheduled to appear with his dead at an event in Maryland. Come on, it doesn't take much time to read a short news report BEFORE you put it out there. SMH!
