did u see the picture of the deceased that was posted on the murder site? troxler is fanning out what looks like hundreds of dollars in small bills. wasn't this dude a drug dealer? was the shooter a rival? it is tragic when anyone is killed...but i will say it is less tragic to me when the deceased was dealing drugs in our community and got into a beef with another dealer. live by the sword...

9:43,
There is indeed a photo of Troxler fanning out some bills (I can't make out the amounts), but I don't know that that makes him a drug dealer. I have no idea how he made his money.

Comment from someone on the channel 7 site: "My friend lives around the corner from where this took place and it was not about drugs two gangs that have a beef with one another"

gangs, drugs, either way, 2 men who could have contributed to society are done for.
one dead, the other likely to serve 8-25 years in jail if not more.

What's your future, when you come out having spent more of your life in then out?

If fanning money makes you a gangsta, then Romney and his Bain buddies are OGs.

Anyone know if this homicide is related to the (assumed) drug boys always hanging out in the 900 block of 8th st NE?

just look at the damn picture and tell me it does not look like he's bragging about the bucks. this person was unemployed. so, where did he get the cash? bills fammed out in this fashion. really. where?

To the haters: I have an MPD source who told me he was the drugs and getting his life together. Turns out a rival gang didn't care. Those who live in glass houses.....
