thank u very much we deffinetly need to think about the reason he jumped in. He passed away, wat are u asking questions for? dont u think the family is tormented enough without the media posting this everywhere they look? not to mention the stories up arent even right. uv never gone swimming in a lake? its very commen. he DID NOT fall and HE DID know how to swim and al these assumptions are ridiculous.
