As the community reels from the news of Randy Feger’s death, many Florissant residents are left wondering what really happened.
Several local people agree that that the “media isn’t telling the whole story” when it comes to exactly what happened to Randy Ferger, the Florissant man who passed away Tuesday evening after being beaten at Pirates Cove Bar & Grill last week.
“So ruthless and senseless,” posted Cindy Forguson on the Florissant Patch Facebook page. “I really hope the suspect is charged with this ruthless crime. God love his kids and family!”
While most don’t seem to want to go “on the record” about what they know, plenty of people are talking about it, and many have very strong beliefs and opinions on what really happened to Randy Feger.
Rumor Has It
Florissant Patch has been in touch with several residents who say they know what happened to Feger that night.
Each has asked that we maintain their confidentiality, but all told the same story.
According to at least three individuals who say they were at Pirates Cove Bar & Grill that night, Ferger was not involved in a fight over the washer tournament.
In fact, they insist, Feger wasn’t involved in a fight at all. Instead, he went outside to speak to the man who would later beat him.
The man allegedly had a fight with a woman inside the bar and Feger went outside to calm him down, sources said.
One source said that Randy was not a fighter and that he never lost his temper. People apparently went looking for him after he had been gone for awhile and found him lying on the ground unconscious outside behind the bar. He reportedly had a large bump on his head.
Someone threw water on him thinking he was drunk and passed out. Feger appeared to wake up, but he did not speak, the sources told Florissant Patch.
Feger’s girlfriend could not get him out of the car at home, so she left him there to sober up. When she came back out in the morning, she found him lying on the ground in a pool of blood.
Our sources said that it should be safe to assume that Feger woke up and tried to walk into the house, but added that “the guy that beat him up knew where he lived” and that some people think he might've come back to finish the job.
“The first stories that came in were all false,” said one source. “This information was told to everyone at the first candlelight vigil.”
“I know both men,” said Chris Melinda Riti in a Facebook post. “This is not the first time the suspect has done this. Randy was a great person.”
Riti added that she knew Feger for more than 25 years, and that he touched many lives.
Rachel M. Ray Ray agreed, stating that she had known the suspect for 12 years and that he “is a jerk.”
