03.29.09, before we found the newspaper articles above, we received the following comments. seems the mystery of tommy brogle continues.

07.06.06, Ernestine T., Mt. Dora, Fl. USA, Hello, do you have any information on a Tommy Brogle, who supposedly jumped from the Skyway Bridge about 25 to 30 years ago. I need the date, very important. Sincerely, Ernestine t. (the provided email address is not valid.)

07.06.06, JulieC., Orlando,Fl., I really need help finding the date of someone who jumped in the 1970's, i need the date,day, month, and year, they found his body in the Bay. His name is Tommy Brogle and this info is crucial for his justice, as he may not have "JUMPED". Please help me, i believe the approx. year they found him was either 1975 or 1976, my phone # is 352-[withheld], Thank you, JC (the provided email address is not valid.)

07.20.06, JC, Ft Lauderdale, FL, This is regarding Julie C., Orlando,Fl., The truth is that Tommy Brogle was pushed off the bridge by somebody he knew. (I am afraid to say who because he is out of jail)! (come on, say who! these comments about mr. brogle have some people all in a tizzy. more on.)

10.06.09, Thomas A Brogle, Massachusettes, Funny thing I put in my name and look what popped up! Is their a photo of this person, interested in what he looks like. Cause as far as I know I am still here!
