Thanks guys.

Well this all has happened over the past 24 hours or so, so to be honest there aren't a lot of details just yet.  I'm not really sure what to think - they say a fight broke out between the two men at a bar in Put-In-Bay over the long weekend (South Bass Island in Lake Erie, a well-known party resort), and sometime later the victim was found dead in the woods behind his cabin by his family.

Like I said, not a lot to go on, but the autopsy is today, and I'm hoping something comes to light that helps his situation. 

We were fraternity brothers in college, and I would visit him once in a while since he graduated.  He definitely has a history of brawling amongst his friends (and enemies), and is trained in some kind of martial arts.  His apartment had wresting mats wall-to-wall in the living room, where I've wrestled some friends of mine before when he would have friendly competitions.  And apparently the victim was an amateur MMA fighter. 

All this aside, though, I couldn't imagine him doing what he's accused of.  He's such a level-headed guy.  Maybe, if they were drinking, accidents happen, but still - it blows my mind!  Like I said, I really hope they have the wrong guy, but only time will tell..
