It's a very sad story. I wonder what really happend with the guy. Foul play maybe? Did he take his own life, or was it just an accident. Might never know.

We must not make these kinds of guesses. They are counter-productive and completely unfair to everyone else. Eventually more of the truth will come out but to speculate about the possibility of foul play without a thing to go on is just not right.

So true. That is exactly how false rumors get started.

Well first of all Iím not starting rumors and if you read my post I mentioned an accident, suicide or foul play. The two of you just assumed I was suggesting foul play. It could only be one of the three I mentioned and I wasnít leaning toward any particular one.

There was no reason for you to mention it at all. That is how rumours get started. There was nothing mentioned nor any indication of foul play. You should not have mentioned it.

Upsetting anyone or starting a rumor wasnít my intention nor making it sound like foul play was responsible for the death of Dillon Roache. I was just thinking about what it was that could of happend to him.

But there was no reason to even put foul play into the equation. Suicide or accident, yes, but foul play should not have been mentioned.

Normally the crew have their on exit / entry from and to the ship.
I wonder how closely these are watched regarding security and would it be possible a crew member who decided he / she wanted to " jump ship " could do so in a port and nor be noticed for awhile? Especially if someone else dinged their pass card in for them.
Just curious as to how secure their exit / entry point is watched.

I wonder too. This could very well be the case Ron.

For clarification - it was reported that the crew member was seen climbing over the railing on camera. The problem was it wasn't seen until they checked the tape some time later.

How sad this story is.

BTW, I did not intend to upset anyone, I simply mentioned rumors get started that way, (as I felt Felix was alluding to) and no I did not assume anyone meant anything.

I am terribly sorry for this poor man and my heart goes out to his family.

Sad to say but it seems that the cruise lines are going to have to have people monitoring all the videos 24 / 7 like the casinos in Vegas, which will mean more personnel, more video equipment and of course, more expense for the cruise lines who will simply pass it on to the cruising public.

I am with you Aerogirl, I think there may have been foul play involved. Some people claim there's always a woman to blame....
