Michael has been on my mind so much lately and it was recently been brought to my attention that I have never put Mike's story on this blog.
People have had plenty to say about my showing favoritism about Mike's case. I have tried very hard not to over-shadow any other case because of my love for Mike. But the fact is, I did love Mike. He was my family. And if Mike would not have died, and died the way he did, I would have never done any of this.
Mike's death has changed my life forever. I don't know how much more plain that I can be. Losing him is my motivation to keep going and I guess if anyone out there doesn't like that or at least understand that, then too bad.
That being said.....this is his story.
Mike was murdered on August 30, 2005. He was 37 years old. He was found around 9 am inside his car on Greenwood Road which was off the road less than 100 yards from his driveway. The car was in gear and the motor was running.He was pronounced dead at the scene. He died from "Blunt force trauma" (no other 3 words have ever hit me harder). He had hundreds of people at his funeral and was loved by so many people. He had friends from all walks of life. No one can understand why someone would ever do this to Mike. He was a friend to so many, a man's man, a hard worker, women loved him because he was a very kind soul that would go out of his way for anyone. His family loved him because he was one of us but more importantly, he was a HUGE PART OF US. He was the heart and soul, always joking around, poking fun at himself (and me) and he loved his Mom more than life its self.
He was not into drugs. I get so tired of hearing this statement from people.
Please let me repeat!!! HE WAS NOT INVOLVED WITH DRUGS!!!!!!
He worked everyday, enjoyed his friends, family and the property he owned that he called his "Little piece of heaven". He was a normal, obviously handsome man that didn't do anything to deserve what happened to him.
That's what makes me so angry!!
He should still be here!!!!
Anyone that knows anything, please contact the police & do the right thing.
This is such a bunch of crap to keep putting my family threw this.
Someone needs to be accountable and whoever you are, if you read this, your day is coming...I swear to you, I will NEVER give up until you are punished!
