RIP - Walter Trevor Junior Stewart

Another man lost his life very young to a bullet 7 years ago at the age of 28. A son, a brother, a father that died too soon but lived a fast lifestyle that may have caused his demise.

Walter decided that selling drugs was the way to make fast and easy money. Stewarts friend says Stewart had it all, the money, the cars and even the girls, and with all of that comes the haters. On December 27, 2003 on Bleecker Street gunshots rang out and Stewart was found laying face down on the sidewalk. A second suspect supposedly was struck by a stray bullet in the stomach, he survived however Stewart died. The cause of death was gunshot wounds to the body.

A friend reports that the night he passed, he didn't drive his car, which was odd. He took a taxi from Jungle to Bleecker, clearly he was called by someone he trusted to meet at 4 in the morning. The cab dropped him off not sensing any tension with the men Stewart spoke to before paying him. The killing was "intentional" the friend says. The man that was shot in the stomach knows who the shooter is. 7 years later, Stewarts killer still has not been caught, no leads or suspects have come up.

The fast life isn't always that good. His life of course should not be glorified but hopefully the young men who live this lifestyle and are so quick to trust that right hand man of theirs, think about possible consequences. It doesn't always end right.
