Hey Ghost, you may have seen this by now, but I just read that the entire fight card has been cancelled 'cause Nick was attacked this past Saturday morning and half beaten to death by a guy(or guys) with golf clubs, of course from behind. Bunch of chicken ---t SOB's. And all over some broad. Just search his name, you'll see all the articles about it. Coincidentally that same morning an old buddy of mine who I've known for 57 years went out to a local forest preserve and shot himself in the head. He was just at my house a while back, showed up, he took my motorcycle for a half day ride, came back and we shot the breeze for a while, he seemed OK. He's had a lot of issues for many years, but I never saw this comin'. Have to go to the wake today. Anyway, I'm sorry to have put a damper on your expectations for next month, I know how much you absolutely love boxing and everything surrounding the sport. Take care.

HM, Bruce and Spiker, thanks so much to each of you guys for the heartfelt comments and thoughts. I didn't mean to get away from TG's post, just coincidence both things happened the same morning, and wait 'til TG hears about what happened to his home town kid, he's gonna be fuming about this!! I knew you 3 guys would have something nice to say about my deal, and believe me I really appreciate your condolences, each of you.
Sincerely,
Tom Laccabue

Thanks TG, went to the wake yesterday afternoon, not good, his wife is a mess and won't be better any time soon. This guy survived a year in Vietnam as a door gunner in a chopper only to end up going out like this. But that's enough about that, back to your deal, first let me offer my condolences to you, I can see that this has hit home hard with you. I know the boxing community is a very close knit one, and one of your very dear passions. The girlfriend is in this up to her neck, what was she doing at the ex's house at 4:30 in the morning? And then calls Nick to come over there? And why haven't the cops made an arrest yet, she saw the whole thing, they have an eye witness. She knows more than she's telling so far. It'll be interesting to see what unfolds. If the cops can prove that she "baited" or lured him there, regardless if she didn't know of the impending attack, she's going to the slammer too along with the attacker.

Thanks a bunch Darrell, I really appreciate the thoughts and concerns you've shown me through this ordeal. Let me also say that I'm sorry to hear that your brother left your family in pretty much similar fashion. It's really sad when someone "goes out" like this, but what's just as sad is the havoc, confusion and wondering left in their wake for the people who really cared about them. It's gonna be a while before I go see the widow, I think I need to just let her have some time before she'll be able to even talk about this without falling apart. I go back many years with her too. I would like to read your thoughts about dealing with this tragedy, if you don't mind I'll send you a PM with my info. On to the Nick Casal attack, they finally arrested the ex-boyfriend(big surprise there)and are holding himWITHOUT BAIL. He has been charged with a Class B felony which in New York can be as much as 25 years and a $30,000 fine. I think TG will be at least a little happier now that they've jailed the coward piece of garbage.
