  1. Rest In Peace, my brother and friend! You will never be forgotten! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‡

  2. Just because this person sat on the tracks in our beautiful city to end his life doesnโ€™t mean something is going on our city or surrounding areas Barbara.

    • People are just so ignorant and besides themselves especially when something fatal happens. This is someone’s loved one and that is what we should really be focused on. This shiz happens EVERYWHERE!!! So instead of saying, what is going on in Oakley why don’t you ask what is going on in YOUR head!! Open your eyes, mental illness is a huge epidemic and we need to do something about it, not just post stupid ignorant shiz!!!! Be the change!!! RIP to this young one๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ™๐ŸฝAnd many prayers to the family and friends.

  3. Heartbreaking. This has happened too many times. It’s not Oakley. It is lack of resources for mental health, addiction and housing. Rest in peace.

  4. Let me explain what is going on in Oakley. The city is strategically located 1 hour away from major cities and has access to freeways in close proximity that take you to all those major cities. There is an apartment complex where all the drug users hang around to be close to their dealer. It has one way in and one way out, gates with high walls and cell phone tower next to it, and a school attached to it. You are living in a human traffickers best choice of city. The police are clueless, dont do anything, lack investigation detectives, are complacent, oblivious and you see all the signs of human trafficking there, yet these trained individuals are only good for traffic enforcement (no pun intended). Did I mention a UPS delivery center? If I was involved in some dirty stuff, I found the best location for making a lot of money.

    Barbara what is happening is being done in your city, but dont worry, your voice dont mean anything here.

  5. I’m gonna miss you puff puff I’m so sorry. I can’t believe he did this it just breaks my heart! I’m going to miss your beautiful smile and laugh.
