With no immediate family after his mother died 10 years prior, he went into a severe depression and secluded himself.

His home was paid for, but went into foreclosure after taxes and annual maintenance done by the city had accumulated to $30,000

Like so many things these days, the nation's struggling economy is at least partly to blame. After Carter disappeared, his utilities were eventually shut off and it was presumed his home had been abandoned. But that's only part of the sad story.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel columnist Jim Stingl dug deeper into the story and discovered that Carter, intentionally or not, had nearly all of his bases covered before apparently choosing to end his own life in utter seclusion.

Carter told his friends and neighbors that he was planning to move to New Mexico. When he first disappeared, they apparently assumed he had followed through on those plans.

Carter had no siblings and never met his father. The death of his mother in 1997 reportedly put him in a depressive state he never recovered from. His friends described Carter as a "giving and funny guy." But as with many cases of severe depression, it appears Carter spent enough time in isolation that his disappearance didn't immediately register as alarming.

So very, very sad that this likable guy ended up so lonely and nobody noticed how depressed he was.
Are people so busy and caught up in their own lives that not one person was able to suspect that he was missing?

In what people view, as a weak choice made by those suffering in times of darkness. I only see the brave in thier hours of sacrifice, we our allowed to see a glimpse of our souls.

life has no value
our souls are forfiet
we are all powerfull and beautiful

But we are all stupid, how long will the screams of our fellow man, endure in silence
even if there are no conspiricies, even if there are no gods or demons, fighting for our very matter

we can sit safe and assured, that through mass polution, through mass industry and mass-miss understanding of the world that bore us, will result in nothing but pain for the many, and suffering for millions.

stick floride in this, create a virus, there a cure here, hadron collider's here, mess with chemicals next door, create nuclear power

what happens when all this is done to the world at once, for a couple of hundred years.

answer no one knows

whats the future of 21st man

no one knows

its my firm belief there is some stuff we are not supposed to know

the conspiricy of life

The current social attitude in America and the design of neighborhoods across the country including Internet and on demand media have fostered this isolation. Many of drive home pull into a garage and rarely step out to check the mail or walk a dog. We do not socialize with our Neighbors we meet instead online. Sad really like being in an Ocean thirsting with water everywhere but not a drop to drink...
