About 9:00 AM on the 21st of this month I got a call from Anthony Recenello who posted here on DR1 for a short period a couple of years ago. I know a couple of people besides my self met him. He was trying to sell several items and posted as Skyking or some such. Any way last week he called and said he thought he had had a heart attack. Could I take him to a doctor. I told him I no longer had a car, but I took a motoconcho to his apartment and we called a cab and went to the public hospital since he had no money. We spent all day at the emergency room and getting blood drawn and X-rays made and an EKG. They wanted him to check in and go into a bed and stay the night. But he said he may as well go home and die. That was Monday last week. I stopped by to see him on Thursday last week and again this afternoon. I knocked on his door and it wasn't even latched and swung open. He sat on his bed with his head down and was dead. Both legs were more black than not,and i am not talking of black as in a black person, but like rotten food!
SO for anyone who knew him Anthony Recenello is dead at 49 years old. I showed the neighbors who were in the process of moving out, and one of them said he had called the police, but 20 minutes later one of them asked me ifI had called the police and I said I didn't know what number to call. So I called my landlady who is Canadian, but has been here for 30 years or more. SHe asked me if I was with the body and when I said yes advised me to leave because the police may decide to take me off to jail. So I did. I had planned to stay and tell te police that he had spent the day in the hospital a week ago, but I took her advise and walked away. I have no real information about him to give them anyway beyond that.

A very sad way to end your life. No one knows you. No one checks on you. It took the heart of a near stranger to care enough to check on you. What a sad way to go. Darrel you are a fine human being kudo's to you.

I commend you for your help and concern Derfish but getting out was the right move, besides there was nothing more you could do for him.

What a sad story. I didn't know the man, but dying all alone without anyone knowing for days and days is a very sad thing. Wise choice to get out of there, DerFish!

I remember him well. His name here was Skynet, and he was from Long Island - Wantagh and Bellmore

RIP Anthony.

Bless you for your kindness Fish.

Wow Fish you are good dude. This story is just brutal. I went back and read some of Skynet's history, he had a good run and then everything fell apart. RIP !! What a horrible way to end your life, alone and broke in a foreign country.
