Anything our U2 community can do for this family? 

Raymond McGavin was in a band called Civic Duty and was to start at William & Mary College in the fall.  His dad, Travis,  posted on facebook "You always want your son to be a better person than you; I succeeded, at least, in that regard."

He mentions creating a GoFundMe page to hire an investigator but I don't see one set up.  Not sure if that was before/after finding his body. 

In any case, this is the dad's FB page: https://www.facebook.com/travis.mcgavin

The parents have said the body is their son.  I think the police said they have to do a DNA test to make sure which leads me to believe he may have been hit by a train.
