    He sort of built like Glenn from the Walking Dead… Who died on the show last night.

      OMG seriously? You couldn’t wait a few days?

      Not dead yet, he didn’t appear on the Talking Dead after show. Hint hint.

    I am not trying to be snarky but with all the cameras in banks, wouldn’t they have more images that were better than this? It’s hard to tell anything from this picture.
