    Scott Petit

    I just heard from Dana that Scott, who some of you will remember from Monterey '08 and his posts on the board, has died.

    The news report is here - http://www.modbee.com/2013/08/09/285...stigation.html

    This is truly very shocking and sad. If there's one person who could handle a situation, Scott would be that guy.

    I know, it really is horrible news. What's so baffling about it is that as an ex-cop and martial arts expert, he's exactly the kind of guy who you'd expect to have got the better of a situation like that.

    Wow! That is a shock. I can only think that if it wasn't random, it may have been related to his work. They don't mention it in the article, but I seem to recall he worked in "private security".

    As the person who bought his Z8 a year ago, I am so shocked and saddened by this news. In the brief time I knew him, I found him to be a gentleman and a stand up guy. My deepest condolences to his and his wife's families.

    It has been over a year now since the last post on this horrific story. I was curious about the status of the criminal case, and found this link with a timeline summary of the trial. The wheels of justice move slowly.
