I noticed some people questioned whether he really said that. Check out the podcast on the radio stations website. I will post the link again.
if spencer really said it, regardless of whether it's true or not, he's way off. he hasn't seemed like the type to do something like that, so it would be surprising.
if there is no clear public need for this information, or family consent, it would be a spectacularly disrespectful and unprofessional neophyte move on anyone's part. it's a pretty big bell that can't be unrung.

The comment as explained can at best suggest that Box's death was possibly suicidal, but even such a suggestion would be grossly inappropriate. I have always loved Spencer Tillman, but such a comment as this on a national medium could be emotionally and even financially damaging (if the family had a life insurance policy on him).
I agree with Georgia that "it's a pretty big bell that can't be unrung." Emily Dickinson said, "A word is dead when it is said, some say. I say it just begins to live that day."
I am upset, and I have never even met Austin. I can imagine how upset his family must be b/c I have been involved in a similar situation with a lost son.
Spencer is surely kicking himself right now for this impropriety.
Hey Spencer, I'm gonna go to sleep now. Be sure and put out the campfire before you turn in.

nothing on your link identifies the podcast that features Spencer Tillman, so which one is it?
