  1. Don’t smoke in bed.

    Don’t try and use gasoline as a grease solvent while smoking.

    Don’t cook meth in the basement.

  2. Resident of the property?

    Who else lives there?

    His mom?

    Where were the other residents the night of the fire?

    How about his ex girlfriend?

    Where did the fire originate?

    Outside, inside, what room, what floor?

    Where was he located?

    Autopsy wise, I’d try to find out if there was foul play (like being hit unconscious before an arson attack).

    Part of me could see him just being passed out after drinking some beer and a fire started in an accidental way, but foul play would not surprise me either.

    On one hand, I know the guy has had some bad luck with fire (just a few weeks ago he accidentally burned his beard off), but on the other it did sound like he had a bit of drama in his life and somebody might have had it out for him.

    Hope they take the investigation seriously.

    Let’s just say there have been some mysterious deaths in this county that didn’t get investigated properly.

    I knew this guy and was really sad to hear about it.

    It was only like a week ago that I saw him and then yesterday my friends told me he died in a fire.

    :/ It’s crazy.

  3. I hear people close to him are trying to figure out arrangements.

    There is something fundamentally MESSED up about not being able to see people close to you who died.

    It strips us of our humanity. And that is another goal of the scamdemic.

    Covid is fake and gay, and even it if weren’t we should still be able to have funerals.

  4. The person commenting previously is NOT a friend.

    This man did not have an “ex girlfriend”.
    They were engaged.

    This man’s previous employer wrongfully terminated him and his employees spent 8 straight months torturing and threatening him.

    There was no foul play.

    This is continued harassment. Nothing more.

    I suggest you seek professional psychiatric help.

  5. Unsure of the funeral comment either.

    There is not one but two services happening.

    Covid never played a factor ?

  6. Fair enough Anon and thanks for clarification.

    That wasn’t the impression I got from him, but I may have misinterpreted him.

    I met with Nick many times but never saw his girlfriend or even heard him talk about her.

    I heard him talk about his “ex wife” and when I asked him about it he said they were never married but were recently separated.

    I have no idea if that was the woman he had a child with or whether it was another woman.

    Regardless, it is very sad for his child.

    I apologize for any confusion and drama.

    His mom seemed alrite and I’m not posting these comments because I have a grudge against her but just because I want everything investigated.

    I just wish the fire marshall does/did a good investigation.

    Yeah, we were friends, Anon, and I’ll probably be seeing you tomorrow and the day after if you’re his friend too.

    Maybe we can put this beef behind us and celebrate Nick’s life?

    My comment about funerals was simply that people deserve to have funerals.

    When my friends die, I don’t want some government idiot telling me I can’t see them.

    Over the last year, many people were ROBBED of their opportunity to see their loved ones.

    I’m glad COVID restrictions are easing. Wakes/funerals are important for closure.

    Maybe I didn’t know Nick as long as you did but he had a great impact on my life.

    Once again, apologies for sounding insensitive. I’m just very sad and confused about how this happened.
