    28th and Madison, 1am Sunday morning, and you expect me to believe that alcohol was not a factor? Sorry, I don’t buy it. Nobody is out walking in that area alone at that time of night stone cold sober. He was either under the influence of a substance or of his own debilitated mental condition.

      Dude, it was like 10:10pm. Fox 17 NEEDS to do better journalism than this. My friend stopped to help and called me about it at around 10:30…. Whoever wrote it happened at 1am is very wrong.
