This is so horribly tragic, and no one deserves to die like this. Eric was a funny, engaging and intelligent man and he will be missed terribly by his friends and family. Rest in Peace Eric. We loved you.

I asked about the medical examiner's findings this week but have to call again given the storm. As soon we have an update we'll post a note here so you'll know.

His name is Eric Mushinick, and he was left to die by his so called friends. It's a horrible tragic loss of a wonderful man. He had a son, loving family, and true friends who are struggling with his loss. Eric was like a brother to me, always looking out for me when I rode my horse. Even going above and beyond to stay with my horse during his last moments of life so I didn't have,to see it. We love, and miss him very much. Goodspeed my friend.
