My gf and I went to see John on the tour several times, and spent a good bit of time talking to Joe at Coney Island. I'll never forget his kindness in that he remembered us and invited us to the afterparty. After reading all the stories and anecdotes people have shared, it's obvious that Joe was just a real stand-up guy. Damned shame about this all, I hope that John doesn't feel responsible or go into hiding again.
Such horrible news. Hope John, the band, and their relations are all coping well
Just came across something possibly disturbing. There's an Instagram account that's attributed to "John" (@johnpmaus), and it's only content is pictures of him and Kika. The only account it's following is her's, and she is the only account that likes and comments on the posts. All from a day ago. Would it be wild to assume that it's her behind it?
The circumstances alone are horrible, and with all this unnecessary baggage along with it, I couldn't imagine anything worse.
Wish there was a way to help
I don't think that John really has the time or care to suddenly up and join Instagram to make a page of nothing but pictures of Kika. That's a really creepy thing to do, making it about herself.
