Is it possible...

Is it possible he had heart trouble? I saw his Facebook pages and he looks a little pale in a circle around his mouth while pink flushed in his cheeks and forehead in many of the photos. I've noticed this in people, including family members that I see regularly, that have heart murmurs, for instance. If he does have a heart "difference" and has had energy drinks that are popular with children today and/or alcohol combined, seems like that would be rough on a compromised heart, especially if he was overtired. I hope the family will get a definitive answer by the autopsy. My condolences to his family and everyone that loves him.

Question Is?

Why wasn't he reported missing? Does he not have loved ones or friends who would have questioned his whereabouts for that length of time? My condolences to everyone.

Have we become a society that is so busy

We don't even notice a parked car with a dead person in it?

In case some of y'all don't know were Washington Square is?
It is where Hooters, 2nd Charles, Masters Cinema and a number of other businesses are.

Near Country Club is where he was found.

Hundreds of people had to of walked right by his car.

Simple. He probably wasn't

Simple. He probably wasn't sitting up and maybe even had tinted windows. Any number of things could have obscured a visual clue.

Maybe he had a trip planned

Maybe he had a trip planned and no one was expecting him home yet.
