A terrible end to this story. But this line makes me think they were close to someone that was responsible and they got scared. I hope they catch them.
R.I.P. Harry.

What else can be said. Such a sad ending.

Harry's travels are over. One more trip home to his family. Not happy homecoming but a homecoming none the less and a time for final farewells.

Rest well Harry.

I never imagined it ending this way. My condolences to Harry's family and at least they were able to get some closure about Harry's fate.

I offer the suggestion that we reserve this thread for the expression of our condolences, etc., and take the other issues to more appropriate threads.

Please.
