    To everyone who posted a humorous comment to pertaining to the story above I, the victim's mother, would like to respectfully request that you find something other than my pain and sorrow to amuse yourselves with. Even though you show no consideration for him whatsoever my son would not have held that against you and would have gladly continued to defend your freedoms while serving this country.

    How awful but nothing new. May the burden lay on someone's shoulder where they will soon talk. I hope they will not be able to sleep at night. :( My condolences to the family.

    One at a time, slowly but surely.....it will happen.

    The title suggests that he was killed by being dropped, not by the bullet.

    If they know he was shot they should be able to locate the bullet hole.

    LOL @ Kriterian. That made me laugh!

    "Police are working with 911 dispatch to try and determine where the man was shot."

    Couldn't they just follow the bloodstains back to the hole in his body?

    I'm sure since they dropped him off it probably has something to do with money, drugs, or a woman. Maybe even all three. Only a true friend would drop you off at the hospital to die!

    "Where's 'Capt' Fear Valley Hospital? Geez"

    You never heard of the late great Captain Fear Valley? He was the greatest Jon boat fishermen this side of the Catawba
