if the current was strong how come when the cop asked gary girlfriend where he went donwn the cop dove in and found him in the same spot??? shouldnt the current have moved him. aslo how come the cop and the other man that went in looking for gary roberts didnt have any problems exiting the water if the current was so strong? Gary was an excellent swimmer from Jamaica and he couldnt have swallowed water just like that.....he aslo did doggy paddle and was in the same spot..Why ...maybe someone had his leggs under the water....what type of people live in this area???/ Muhhhh!!!!

Yes, your right, I don't know Kirk. Apparently I would lie for no reason. I guess I don't know Gary's dad Hector, or his 2 sisters either, who happen to be my cousins!!! Ignorance is bliss you idiot! AGAIN....get a life!

you are the worst family member ever. maybe you was jealous of him. and its sad how you seem so happy that he's gone. you idiot you. if you are really his cousin, then you are f-ed up. and matter of fact if you are a family member, you know me well.(k)

Your statement above just proves how ignorant you are. I love everyone in my family...but to say with such certainty that something was "done to him" is quite foolish considering YOU NOR I were there. I've spoken to Kirk about this, as well as his sister who agrees with me that accidents do and can happen. He is gone and missed, but in a better place. I'm going to assume your above post was only written out of anger, simply because it would be quite foolish to make such a statement about someone you don't know. I'm finished with this online foolishness. If you still feel the need to talk, contact my brother and he will be glad to put you in contact with me. Have a good day.
