OldMcDonald32, you used a quote which denotes knowledge you have obtained from a 3rd party whom you have yet to reveal. Off the record or not, do you have the right to publish such an alligation without substantiating it? I think it's shameful that you posted this & followed it with "my heart goes out to all members of their families." It is hard to believe you have a heart cosidering the blow you have levied here. Maybe you should check you source to see if they still have a pulse...I should think it unlikely as well. Off the record, I think your post is cruel & disrespectful, tasteless & tactless.

"Right to know" vs. "want to know". No one has a right to know exactly what happened on those train tracks in the pre-dawn hours of August 22nd except the families of the two young people who lost their lives & the people who are investigating this tragedy.

The American public is so drenched in media scandal that we seek it out at every oppotunity - Casey Anthoney, O.J. Simpson, etc. - we want to know the details & speculate the outcome. When the details are not produced just when we think they should, we assume a cover-up is involved or that authorities are not doing their job to provide us with the information we think we should have.

As a U.S. citizen, I have a right to privacy, as do the families involved in this horrific, life-altering event. This is the only right that is afforded to all of us & it should be respected. You have to ask yourself, "If this was my child...my family member..." would you want the details, ture or false, all over the headlines. Would you appreciate wild speculation in the comment section this article if you were a grieving parent, sister, uncle? I doubt it.

My deepest heart felt sympathies go out to the families & I hope your heart is healed in knowing He sheppards us all home so that we might sheppard over those we leave behind. They never leave us...those we cary in our hearts.
