Death At Death Valley

A 19-year-old Clemson University student was discovered dead early Tuesday after he fell an estimated 120 feet from the top of the south stands of Memorial Stadium (a.k.a. Death Valley).

The Pickens County (S.C.) coroner has identified the student as Michael Joseph Allen – a Georgia native.

Allen’s death – which was first reported at around 8:00 a.m. EST on Tuesday – is being investigated jointly by the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED), Pickens County sheriff’s deputies and Clemson University police.

No word yet on what Allen was doing at the stadium- as Clemson’s last home game was held on November 21 – but a SLED spokesman told The Greenville News that foul play was not suspected.

Of course (sadly) we’ve learned not to trust what the authorities say when it comes to suspicious student deaths on the Clemson campus …

Will – we need another hot chick gas price article. Double chick pic would be even better.

There is a reason the press chooses not to cover suicides, FITS.

If this is indeed a suicide, then it is one too many. Colleges need to put more resources into Counseling. There needs to be a safe protocol for friends of students who are talking about suicide. Not all can be prevented, but many can be prevented if students are made aware of how to help those in need.

The greatest season is the otherwise marginal record of Clemson football, and it’s marred by this horrible development. God be w/ the family.

That program can’t catch a break, it seems.

And with CU’s history of unexplained student deaths – and scandal surrounding them – there’s no wonder where this will lead…

And remember: Dabo is ALL IN…that means in the hard times too. Will he be questioned?

Your comment is totally inappropriate.

I am convinced TAR is a high school student on crack.

Self righteous and judgmental much?

LMAO!!!…That’s what liberals usually say about Christians. I guess we know where you get your cues from and who you hate.

Don't Forget, Water Plants! December 2, 2015 at 9:38 am

TARevolution and Flip are just liberal plants to make conservatives look bad. Look how often they fight right wing commenters and you’ll have your proof.

CNSYD December 1, 2015 at 5:48 pm

Birds of a feather…. TARevolution and Sic Willie aka Wil Folks.

westmetronews December 2, 2015 at 12:34 pm

You got it wrong old man, Terry Ward is TARevolution, not Will Folks.

CNSYD December 2, 2015 at 5:01 pm

Adjust your reading glasses. I said Sic Willie was Wil Folks not TARevolution.

Rex December 1, 2015 at 5:52 pm

Oh, shut up. Only a dumbass like you would suggest that law enforcement waste time and effort questioning a completely uninvolved party. Don’t start with me again or I will kick your ass like I have the last couple weeks…You hateful and robotic piece of shyt.

TARevolution December 1, 2015 at 9:03 pm

If it were Spurrier, you’d have him jailed by now. And what’s worse, 3/4s of the media would be in agreement w/ you…

Rex December 2, 2015 at 9:30 am

Wow, you are one delusional idiot. It’s no wonder people don’t take you seriously. First of all, I’m a USC grad. Second, nobody but you would suggest any such thing. Not even the dumbest and most fanatical Clemsonite (and there are legions of them) would come up with the same thing about Spurrier that you just uttered about Dabo. You are one stupid mofo. You come up with the dumbest BS and pretend that anybody who disagrees is a liberal in lockstep with Democrat party. You can continue to make up as much shit as you want, but it’s all over your face right now. I didn’t think you could sound any stupider.

To congratulate BigT in person on his dickheaded post, go to 162 Saints Creek Lane, Irmo, SC.

That’s an odd address, it doesn’t register on google maps. I see some house construction in that subdivision and it dates to 2014, so maybe it’s new construction?

Big Terry December 1, 2015 at 9:53 pm

“Big T” has got you guys running around in circles. He’s most likely “Terry Ward”.

Why would I think this?

Here’s a scrape from Sewell Consultancy:

And who is this “Terry Ward”? Well, if I was an FBI profiler I’d say there’s a good chance he could be a mass murderer down the road, but not knowing that for sure let’s just stick with the facts. You remember when “Big T” claimed he was a “writer” and we all laughed because his writing skills/grammar was so atrocious?

Well, that’s most likely because he had editors correcting his crap:

Oh lookie there! “Big T” is the “Assistant Managing Editor at The Lexington Chronicle”!

As flip would say: LMAO!

“Involved”? Is that a euphemism for killed?

Tunes'n'News December 1, 2015 at 6:59 pm

Odd you still have nothing to say what happened at Williams-Brice last Saturday but you posted immediately about a suicide at Death Valley today. Kind of shitty in general to post this, too. Maybe the newborn has impacted your sleep and judgment.

mic December 1, 2015 at 7:55 pm

When this was poster there was no evidence that this was a suicide. Perhaps now (I don’t know), but not when this was posted.

Yes, very troubling murders out of the upstate this year; and no one is ever accountable – esp. wealthy frat boys and white police. Go figure….
