  1. Sorry to see this happen to this young man. I wish the family my deep condolences. The most scary thing is when death happen on this website, it gives another death that happen last year around the same time. The accidents are serious in Maywood, this accident match up with a accident on 9th roosevelt last year, when a older man died. Pay attention. Stay strong Talley Family.
