Baffling violence left lone bicyclist dying on a lawn

Thumb blisters aside, Mark Loesch was excited about the new tire he put on his rebuilt bicycle late Wednesday.

When his wife, Samantha, went to bed after they watched the 10 p.m. news, Loesch told her he was going out for a “quick spin.” She thought nothing of it.

“He might have been coming to my house,” said Gene Chadwick, his best friend and frequent riding partner. “It wouldn’t be unlike him to pop over and say ‘Hello.’”

He never arrived.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. So, was he hit and run, or did someone pull him off his bike and beat him up? Hit and run is bad enough, but to get grabbed and beaten to death? Seriously screwed up.

    Opus

  2. There is serious hate toward cyclists out there for some reason. I saw dudes throw a BigGulp full of ice at some guy in front of me the other day. Random.

    That isn’t clost to what this guy got.

    What is it with all the rage against us.

    RIP and love to the family

  3. Mark Loesch was beaten to death, apparently. The neighborhood he was riding through is pretty rough—three teenagers were shot and killed earlier that week.
