If you had a clue about anything, you would know there are hours and hours of taped conversations that not only prove Leddy had nothing to do with this, but How sick in the head Dan really is. Give it time, you and the world will hear by his own voice what a creep Culhane really is. Then lets see how many Danny followers will back him. I cant wait!!!!!!!!!!
The man is innocent.

If that helps you sleep at night, I guess I would not want to except it if someone in my family could do this neither. The truth is, this is far from over. Stay tuned. You don't screw this many people over and move on. Legally, its not over. The tapes will prove Dan did this alone in his own words. Admitting his guilt and removing any doubt of anyone else. You cant argue with Dans OWN VOICE. So please think before defending him, when the tapes are aired on the TV/news paper then you might feel a little dumb about defending this con man. The media has become very interested in this story, and with them we will LEGALLY remove any doubt Dan Culhane did this himself out of greed. Sorry if the truth hurts.

To "Victim":
The proper spelling of "grammer" is grammar. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
Men who leave their families serially shouldn't promise to care for needy grandmothers.

This thread is all I could find on Dan following his death.
What a sad story and a sad life.
Hopefully we can all learn from his example what not to do and how not to treat yourself and others.

We had a lot of laughs back in the day, I don't know what caused you to fraud your friends and honest people. I saw the pain it caused you. I forgive you for what you did to me, I will move on. I pray you found peace in final moments. RIP.

What a sad story. He got in over his head and didn't have the courage to admit it and get out before he really hurt people. He effed up but he wasn't a bad guy. We had a lotta good times as kids. He just didn't know how to grow up and take responsibility for himself. RIP Danny.

Dan was my friend. We walked the yard in prison and he regretted everything he did. He was not alone. Some guy named Leddy was culpable. Dan died with honor. He did his time in Wyoming Correctional Facility across from Attica not an easy place for a white collar criminal. RIP Dan you were allright.

He has met his peace and is with his mother again. My heart hurts for him and this sad sad story. His adolescence/ past shaped his future. He was actually a very sensitive person, who couldn't deal with his own pain. Drugs and alcohol mixed with a broken spirit is an unfortunate combination. He wanted to hide his insecurities.

I hadn't seen Dan in 14/15 years but I know he isn't bad hearted and ultimately I'm sure Guilt played a huge part in his death. May he now rest in peace and perhaps be an angel of good deeds.

Any word on rich and if he's still doing well? I hope so. I wish I would have know of Dans passing earlier to pay my respects to the family and show them some love. Xo

Dans in my prayers and heart. Rich will always be. I hope the family can find strength in God.
