As the trial of the two men who allegedly beat Bryan Stow into a coma is set to begin, a reported key witness in the prosecution's case has died suddenly. According to the Los Angeles Times, Matthew Lee died Sunday after eating a salad that contained nuts, which triggered an allegic reaction that cost Lee his life.

Lee attended the game between the Giants and Dodgers on opening day with Stow and other friends and was said to be a very important witness to the case against Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood. Officials reportedly said they have physical evidence on the two assailants in addition to eyewitness accounts, but it is unclear how much Lee's death damages the case. The LAPD is also reportedly still searching for more witnesses.

Stow, 42, was critically beaten by two men after the Dodgers and Giants played on opening day in Dodger Stadium.

It was probably suicide. Or he was probably drunk and really craved nuts so he went to town, then realized they were nuts, not raisins, and then gave a gargaly noise and died. Just like in Dumb and Dumber.

Seriously--take a deep breath everyone. Posting here has ZERO reflection on the deceased person--God rest his soul. Its not his obit. Good grief. Talk about sanctimoious silliness.

Time to search shadowboxer's attic for drugs.  It's addict, shadowboxer, someone addicted to drugs.  An attic is a room or story directly beneath the roof of a house.
Beyond that, there is more interest in crimes against white people.  I can't remember a big case where the death of a person of color riveted the nation.   The Atlanta children, 20 years ago, prior to Court TV, were African-American kids for whom we were involved and saddened.  But Casey Anthony, Nicole Brown Simpson case, Chandra Levy, Scott Peterson in California killing his wife, Lacy, and unborn baby--all white people.

I lived in Southern California for 5 years and ran a sports bar. Fights would happen all the time between Raiders/Chargers fans or Dodgers/Padres/Giants fans. It was ridiculous. California is a strange place. When they talk it is "peace" and "love", but the reality is Southern California is as rough a place as there is in the states. Another friend of mine in SoCal ran another bar and he recently was paralyzed by 2 hispanic 21 year olds with a knife because he had ejected them earlier from the bar. This article isnt about race, but I will tell you for sure that race is part of the equation. While many Mexicans are hard working, family people a larger portion than in other races is up to no good. They have no care for others or regard for the value of life. Build the fence high please.

Shadowboxer, that was the most ignorant comment someone has stated. This is a travesty that this occurred on something so glorious. This guy is not only a person, he is a hero as an EMT. Also, the media coverage of this is mostly on sporting sites, not global media as it is relevent. I am white too, and that has nothing to do with the coverage.

By the way, rich white people have been covered on the news for hazing and all; so not only are you an ignorant to bring race into it; your comment is not even factual.

Don't even try to rebute; you will just make a fool of yourself.
