Im glad newgrounds is capable of questioning. A bit of my faith has been restored. If this is true though, may she rest in paradise.

Don't some of you think that it might be a safer and more considerate assumption that someone isn't going to lie about things like this? I know there are a lot of bs stories around on the BBS, but if this turns out to be true, some of you did made themselves look like inconsiderate dicks in this thread. I understand the skepticism, but showing some support still does credit to you anyhow. So why not be supportive instead of instantly assuming that he's lying, only to run the risk that people will find you a total asshole when it turns out you were wrong?

That said: I can't say I really knew her. She hasn't been on Newgrounds for long apparently, but I still find it sad to hear this. I mean, only 17 and hit by a drunk driver... That's a very sad way to go. I hope she rests in peace and all the best wishes to friends and family.

Because some people like to be honest I suppose, being supportive is pointless if you don't really mean it, a lot of people here just want confirmation on this before they draw a conclusion, which to me is understandable.

You would think that even a link to other pages the user is on would help a little to giving some confirmation but nothing has been given an this is why people are skeptical.

If being skeptical is the same as being an asshole, then I guess I'm an asshole.

It is a real shame. She was a part of our small community in Newgrounds. It makes us all realize how easily a life can be taken away. It is a sad day for our Newgrounds community and must be life-wrecking for her friends and family

R.I.P. Rivergrey, you will not be forgotten

Almost three months being on Newgrounds and she's already dead.

That's just truly sad,. I mean, I barely even knew her but I do see her posts in most threads and you got to admit she was a pretty decent poster..

R.I.P. Rivergrey and my dearest condolences to her family. :(

I have never heard of this person before, and it's simply too bad. He had a fair number of posts and at least one audio submission. I hope we can mourn him properly. It's a pity he had to die right about Thanksgiving when so many people are out celebrating. Maybe his family can have a feast in his honor. I wonder how other people access his profile when he's dead? Maybe it's a good idea to tell someone else your password?

Sad to hear especially not that long after Mothwing's sudden death. These Newgrounds User deaths are so tragic I wish I could find out more about what happened.

A lot of people could still be skeptical because of the whole EpicFail thing that went down a little while back, that issue caused a lot of confusion and drama, and I'm sure people are just trying to make sure they're not getting a false story again.

Now that this is the official mourning thread, I just thought that I would copy and paste my initial response to this one...

Wow, I barely started conversating with her on these forums. Yet I find it a bit of a shock that her sudden death actually happened.

Sadly, It is often the innocent non-drinkers who get struck by drunk drivers.

I'm sorry that such a bright promising person on these forums was lost.

So she died and then her parents gave you her comptuer? Sounds legit.

Both of them claim to not know eachother IRL.
And riverguy responds as if she was DonCarrera.

If this is true, than Rivergrey used the same internet connection as Don. Seems fishy to me. I think Don should link to an online news report of the accident. Accidents like this don't happen without a news story about it.

I am not the person to say this is real or fake. We are given a strange and changing story - and this story is presented in a very suspicious manner. If River has died, I am deeply sorry. However, the possibility that the entire account was an alt (not naming names) is high, considering the sign up date, lack of contribution, and mysterious relation to Don.

But, again, I don't see a point to proving or disproving the story. If it was an alt account, oh well, I guess someone got bored or harassed with it. If it was a real person, then we should mourn her for a respectable amount of time.

I really don't care whether or not this is a fabrication. In all honesty, it doesn't matter at all.
