    This is not how I expected we would hear about my nephew Mylan. I have prayed and often wondered where he was and what he was doing.

    Faye, go to his Facebook account – many of his friends are posting there. You should be able to find the answers you are seeking through one of us. BTW, his mother has been reached and apparently is en route.

    My name is Jeff Callaway, and i have been friends with Mylan for almost 20 years now. He was a one of a kind person who had many friends who loved him. Both in California where he had been living, as well as a family of friends in Texas. If anyone finds out what happened to him or who did this to him or have any information about a funeral or memorial, then please contact me on my facebook page or e-mail me at texasoutlawpoet@yahoo.com

    the long beach coroner should keep his opinions to himself. just because Mylan didn’t own his own home doesn’t mean he didn’t have 100 people who would’ve let him move in with them in a heartbeat. i bet the coroner could not say the same thing about himself. shame on you cbs for printing that!
