    Most all of CNN's stories here are missing details. Fortunatly, there is a thing called the worldwide web, also newspapers and other news outlets where you can find the details if you are really interested. Or you could just be overly critical and never know the whole story.

    Thanks for the in-depth coverage. I can see that no stone was un-turned to give everyone every detail.

    The comments are a lot more interesting and informative than the article.

      I agree
      I am reading the comments to see if there was a bit more elaboration to the one liner!
      The comments are great!

    Philip, you mean actually google Delaware and find out about the poor victim? No thanks. I'd rather just criticize CNN. It's easier, and I can feel artificially superior.

    This is good though, at least it shows some activity on the story behind the death of this guy. I know they found him in a dump, but I'm not sure if he was chopped up and tied inside of trash bags or what. Blunt force trauma and assault tell me if he was cut apart, they either cut him up alive or bashed his brains in and then cut him up. Either way, there aren't any witnesses that I have heard of (other than the guys in the videos). Strange how this guy could just up and die after taking an Amtrak train. You know, he used to work for Amtrak.

    At least they didn't make us read a bunch of non-sense just to get to the point.

    Is this the only way to get non-biased journalism? By only reporting one-liners? Next time, I'll find another "news" site. Thanks.
