Just the previous week, on Oct. 7th, he had been robbed at gunpoint at the hotel he had been staying at while working in Montgomery. He was only supposed to be there 2 months, and was supposed to come home on Nov. 5th.
Update: They have now arrested three suspects and have charged them with Capital murder. You can read about it here.
Stephen was a great friend to everyone. He lived life to the fullest, was always smiling and could cheer anyone up. He was only 24 and had a long life before him. I really can't believe he's gone.

Stephen, you were a great friend to many. You will be greatly missed.
October 16 also marked the two-year anniversary of the death of Brandon Allen Koch, another former classmate, who was killed in a car accident in 2008.
So, needless to say, October was very sad indeed.
