what's that old 70's song by Debbie Boone, "You Light Up My Life" Sad circumstances; but, nobody can be that desperate for money. It would have been safer for him to turn "tricks" at the truck stops on I-75.

It is a damn shame that you people get on here and run your mouths like this. I know what this young man done was wrong, and he has paid with his life for it. That still gives you all no right to get on here and say these kinds of things. Think about this boy's family and the hurt they are already going through. You don't need to add to their pain with you remarks. How would you feel if it was a family member of yours?

I agree that the decision that this young man has chosen was wrong. This young man has actually paid for what he had done with his own life. You all know that this young man's family is already grieving over is death and probably embarrassed as well with the way he died and was caught doing. This is horrible and no one should be on here disrespecting.

Its a shame that a mother would run off and leave her child knowing that he has the mental capacity of a small child. Why on earth would someone with a head full of sense put another that has mental issues up to steal copper knowing that its putting this young mans life at danger. What some friend! I guess that goes to show that no matter what condition a person is in another will be absent minded and try to endanger the person that has a problem. Does anyone know who the other person was? or if that person put Steven up to this for drug money? I bet the other person was a drug addict and didn't care if was endangering this poor boy's life. I just think that if Steven had a mental condition than this other person that was involved coaching Steven needs to be charged with more than just stealing,maybe like manslaughter or something. I have a sister that has a mental disability and I would never leave her or let anyone coach her into doing something that's going to endanger her if I could keep from it. I just think that this is a real shame and that this other person desperately needs to be punished. Only if all that has been said is true about Steven having the mental capacity of a child.

I don't know anything about this young man except what I have read in the previous comments,but you know what if all that is true about his mother running off and leaving him and him having the mind capacity of a small child than his mother is not worth knowing in my book. This is a shame. That's just my opinion though.

VERY WELL SAID! I agree, people are so fast to judge. If this is all true then this young man lost his life at someone's eles gain. I don't know the story behind his parents, if they are good or not. Any given day parents walk off and leave healthy kids and even worse kill them. So nothing would surprise me. This boy is dead and respect should be shown. God is his judge now.

Coolbreeze i know who you are. I am really surprised with this comment that you have made. I thought you were raised better than that. Your not as cool as you think you are. Have respect for the dead. This was a human, and i do not agree with the choices that were made, but then again if we get on here posting rude comments what does that say about us as a person. He has paid with his life.

This is a life your teasing and joking about..show some respect! You do not know this man's life. He could have been stealing to feed his self or family or just to live. It does cost money to live and prices have gone through the roof , for crying out loud. he lived in McCreay County Ky. where there is no work! Had to do something to survive. God will forgive a petty thief like that who has a mind of a 3 yr old. He won't forgive u for making fun tho unless u ask for forgivness, so I suggest u all start praying!

No their hasnt been any funeral arangements, because his sorry mom is off with her new man n his dad is locked up in whitley co jail going crazy because this is his second son he has lost in seven years n he cant be with family or do nothing. Steven's brother Damon drowned ay Holly Bay in 2003,leaving behind a daughter who is now 7 yrs old. Steven just didnt have the sense god give some of us, n was very pursuasive to things. My goodness it was a 17 yr old boy with him!
