      He was the compelled errand boy for Isobel. Is one who killed Isobel’s friend, then warned Elena to stop looking for Isobel.

    What do you mean by J? His/her name? Or is it something else? If its not his/her name, I think I know.

    Wonder if it was a suicide like John Goodman’s character in the first season of Treme.

      As someone who will eventually catch up with all of Treme on dvd, I’m bummed that GOodman’s character committed suicide :( Does anyone know who he played on Breaking Bad?

    @ stick it in your butt……he was my frienmd thats who he was. A great friend and a kind human being. You could have learned a thing or two from him. I did. He was also a dedicated and hard working actor. And to those who think this was a car accident you are wrong, his car is missing. May we soon find out what happened so that he may rest in peace. I shall miss him.

      It is always sad when someone passes under these circumstances. If indeed it is foul play, I hope the killers get their due. May he RIP.
