    I think he’s dead. Honestly, I’m sad. Dylan seems like a good person. But if he really ran into a barefoot crackhead, and let him use his phone, and then maybe said some insults or was threatening, and some idiots really gave that crackhead a ride to his house, and his boots were taken off, well, looks to me like he’s either being tortured right now, or the easiest conclusion, he’s dead.
