  1. My condolences to Mr. Deckert’s family. Looking at his photo I notice a tear drop tattoo on his face. In prison culture a solid tear drop means you’ve killed someone. A outline of a tear drop means you’ve attempted to murder someone.

    Perhaps it’s just a smudge on his face but it’s a pretty good indicator of a persons criminal history. And the location of his body is probably a dumping spot. Most murders of people with a criminal background are related to the sale, theft of, or nonpayment of a drug debt.

    Or maybe he was hiking and fell down dead (less likely).
