Did one lead to the other?

by Anonymousreply 104/25/2013

two unrelated incidents pushed together by crowdsourcing @ reddit and enabled by the feeble-minded on DL.

I dunno, r2. It sounds like the guy may have been dead for a while even BEFORE the bombings.

Sunny one so true, baby I love you.

How sad for his family. He had a sweet smile. :(

no kidding r3. What gave it away? Was it that they had to use dental records to id him?

Was there a 'smiley face' nearby?

Well, at least his parents know he was not a traitor, so this is working out very well for them.

Why did the people at reddit think he was a bomber? That was never made clear to me.

Still, could have been a murder rather than suicide. You never know nowadays.

Why does the media keep pointing out his skin color. That is truly horrible.

Is that supposed to be a joke R11? He went to Brown University.

"Is that supposed to be a joke"

Probably not, but it is a sad joke that people on THIS website - which exports libelous rumors and heinously fradulent gossip like cocaine - are being their usual caustic cunty selves about a DEAD kid.

Very sad.

What or who is Reddit BTW?

"Big Bang Theory" won't be the same without him.

What a dignifed, loving response by the family.

Some idiots thought Tripathi looked like one of the bombers and then it turned into a feeding frenzy. More level-headed posters warned about naming Tripathi as a bomber, but reddit is in real time, and too many people got caught up in Internet hysteria.

Would he have killed himself if he knew he'd be this famous a month later?

R18 - There were reports that his name was mentioned on a police scanner.

by Anonymousreply 2004/25/2013

That was odd. Did they ever explain how his name got on the police scanner? Thescanner named another suspect too that proved to be false.

by Anonymousreply 2104/25/2013

I don't think Sunil was ever mentioned on a police scanner - just some people reported that it was.

by Anonymousreply 2204/25/2013

R21, his name was never mentioned on the police scanners. If you read the articles, they went through all of the feeds and it never happened. Someone posted on Reddit that they heard his name on the scanners and it went from there.

I'm pretty sure it was suicide, since his wallet and phone were left in his room.
