That sounds like the title of a Johnny Cash song, no? Sadly, there is little humor in this one. Here's where constant vanity searches get weird, when bad things happen to people with the same name as you.

On the off chance any Junkies saw this, it ain't me.


DCI releases beating victim's name

A man found beaten along a rural road Monday night has been identified as Scott Sigler, 38, of Rapid City by the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation.

Sigler was listed in critical condition at Rapid City Regional Hospital Wednesday afternoon. At 9 p.m. on Wednesday a hospital official said Sigler was not listed in its directory.

A motorist found Sigler, unconscious and struggling to breathe, laying near the junction of state S.D. Highway 40 and the Spring Creek cutoff east of Hermosa at approximately 6 p.m. He was so badly beaten that those first on the scene believed he had been shot.

The severity of the beating prompted Custer County Sheriff Rick Wheeler to call in DCI to handle the investigation.

Authorities are asking anyone who may have seen something suspicious or who knows anything about the attack to contact DCI at 394-2258, ext. 119.

Glad to hear you're not dead

Horrible story. Sometimes, my fellow 'human beings' make me very sad.

Great news!

(for you, anyways.)

Now, someone needs to let Julie Andrews know that her boys hit the wrong guy!

The Terminator is being systematic.

Obviously, you lead a human rebellion against Skynet sometime in the future.

That's just crap.

Glad it wasn't you Scott. In Sanford Fl they caught a guy on video beat the crap out of several people and it took the news to get an arrest warrant issued for the guy. It turns out the guy is the son of one of the cities police force's lieutenants.

LMAO!

I thought the same thing! Scott needs to follow the news. Might find a trail of dead Scott Siglers making its way towards Cali!

Kinder, gentler Terminators?

If that's the case, I'm guessing SkyNet gets its tactics from old gangster movies, 'cause it seems like they just roughed the guy up real good & said "cut dat shit out, or next time we'll send a Terminator model BT1000* to come & make ya sleep wit da fishes."

* BT = Big Tony :)

...yeah, after reading that, I realize that it was much funnier in my head. I'm gonna post it anyway, for the crack hits & all.

I call bullshit

This has to be a fake news story. I mean come on, nobody actually lives in South Dakota, do they? I always thought it was just a bunch of useless land that we stole from the natives, not so much because we wanted it but more because we didn't want them to have it, and it just kinda got chopped in half and made into two new states because, seriously, no one else would take it. Hell, Canada didn't even want it.

(i'm not really that dumb, that just sounded funny in my head)

I know this man personally.

I know this man personally. He is a great guy and a DJ. He is one of the nicest guys in the world. I can't believe somebody did this to him. I hope the perps get the death sentance or at least life in prison. I am praying he will come out of the coma with full recovery and no amnesia so he can tell the authorities who did this. I hope the wrath of God comes down on the perpetrators and makes their lifes a shit hole.

Angela, please accept my apologies

The other Junkies who made light of this situation should not have done so. This is a serious situation and a human being we are talking about. 

However, please place the blame on me and the culture we have here. It is light-hearted and not political. People here are used to having a free forum that is based in black humor, where we make fun of everything -- life and death included. That is not an excuse for insensitive comments about a tragic situation. On a site that is based in horror fiction, however, we can lose sight of the fact that real horror is waiting for us all, at all times, and is just around the corner. 

Feel free to contact me, scott@scottsigler.net, so I can talk to you directly.

I should have replied to you sooner

Dear Anonymous,

First, my apologies for taking six days to respond to your comment. I feel terrible for your friend. I'm not the praying kind, but my hopes are with you and he that he makes a full recovery. 

-Scott-

Guys, this one is serious

We have some of my beloved Junkies who are letting this thread slip into the realm of the black humor we all love so much, the tone we take to deal with the frailty and unpredictability of life, but this is not an occasion for our normal banter. This is not a joke -- a man named Scott Sigler is, indeed, fighting for his life. So let's all take a step back. I am not slapping anyone's hand, but this is not the thread for jokes.

On Edited

I also apologize.

Please excuse me and my fellow Junkies - we try to outdo each other at morbid humor.  This should not have been done at the expense of your friend. I hope that he recovers and that they do find the bastards that did that to him.

youre right scott

I apoligize for the dark humor.  it was inappropriate.  but the best way to deal with the true horrors of humanity, is humor.  the mind cant take all the death in the world personally,  if we did we would be a big ball of tears that would never leave the house.  so we make jokes, and some people will get offended.  and while i apoligize for hurting anyone with my words, i will not stop making jokes after a tragedy.  for it is the way i deal with my pain.

If I wasn't laughing, I'd be crying.

Angela, I can promise you

that the people on this site and some of the most caring and thoughtful and caring human beings I have ever met. They have helped me through (and are currently helping me through) some of the darkest and toughest times in my life. Black humour and banter is used as a means of escapism from the troubles of real life and to try and forget the world for a while. In doing this, I think we forgot that there was a real man behind this fighting for his life. I'm so sorry if we caused you any additional pain with our banter but I can promise you that every one of us hopes Scott makes a full recovery and that the scum bag that did this is found and brought to justice. Please accept our sincere apologies as they are truly heartfelt.

Junkies - any of you that are able to edit your posts,  urge you to do this out of respect to the family & friends.

south dakota beating

for any ones info it was no joke that on dec 27 of last year scott sigler of rapid city south dakota  was beaten and left for dead along a rural highway by the grace of god he is still alive and recovering more each day. he will never be the same person again  how do i know this is very simple scott is my oldest son . anyone that can joke about another human beaing beaten and left for dead is both repulsive and scarey all at one time. scott not onley has his family here but a 19 yo daughterin NC. I am retired from the US Coast Guard an it a disabled Vietnam Veteran having fought for my country and given physicaly and mentaly in the doing so I take great umbrance and offense to any with this much disrespect and am shocked that  you sgt Jordan being where you are,in your life and career that you did not have enough brains to have checked the story out before opening your big mouth. Even Marines respect life and a true warrior knows there is no good day to die  I honestley hope you are more serious with your career and use more sense when making desicions  with others   SEMPER PERATIS
