I know I don't post round here much anymore but I really do need as much support as we can get, Liam was a lovely young lad with a bright future ahead of him and that's been cruely taken away from him. It's only a couple of click's and won't take a minute of your time.

Sad to see, but I don't think this is the right thing to do.

Surely a matter for the Coroner/Police?

I really wish the Police were able to do more but he had no physical marks when this happened on sunday and Liam's not here to speak out, the campaign is to get the suicide note published in the paper's.

If you don't want to support us that's fine, I'm only asking.

It's not that I don't feel sympathy for those concerned, but that Facebook thing smacks a little of vigilante-ism.

I understand that emotions are running high, and it's really none of my business, but I'm guessing that there will be an inquest - naming an individual as being responsible for this young lad's death is not a clever thing to be doing.

I'm sorry but wrong place, and to be frank its against what the Police want as well.

Doesn't matter how sad something is, demanding to see some ones suicide note is at best Ghoulish and at worse no better than the person who supposedly committed these 'crimes'

To be frank its no one's business but Liam's, his families and whatever investigation the Police deem fit (if any) The rubberneckers and gossip mongers have no place at all in this

Im so very disappointed that this has even been posted on here

Sorry, but I am going to lock this thread. I fear it is likely to lead to more upset than good due to strong opinions and emotions and I am sure that is the last thing anybody concerned would wish.
