So sad if it is not foul play then what? OD? How sad Hope the police investigate further. Seems like they just wiped his death off with no answers.

They can tell now when he actually died. It is possible that he left the party and someone tried to rob him and killed him, threw him into the Hudson River. How awful if that is true. It's awful all the way around.

Drugs landed him in the river and the weight from all those tats pulled him down.

They need to look a bit closer at this... I read an article where his BEST FRIEND FELIX was interviewed WHILE THE DESIGNER WAS STILL JUST MISSING... the BFF makes the comment that the undercurrent in the river is very swift and that he hopes he is located soon...

There seems to be more to this story... if he wa such a success... WHY did he have to pawn a RARE MOTORCYCLE in order to buy a "mini" yacht to live on???

This is SAD... but it also wwalks like a duck and sounds like a duck...

I agree there seems to be more than meets the eye. I don't discard the possibility it could have been an accident. Maybe he slipped, hit his head and fell unconscious in the water, ect. But what are the cances of that? RIP
