How Did Ryan Johnson aka RJ2 Die?



Anyone know the legitimacy of this (the details.. not his death)? I just found it snooping around a little deeper on the google… This never popped up before when I did a basic search?! All I’ve read about his death was that he was “trapped in an upstairs bathroom”. This says he was essentially murdered it sounds like… and drained his bank account?!? WTFFFFF.

Ed Rhodes Rj lived close to me…i hadn’t heard about the bank account…but locals were screaming foul play.

Eli Godfrey I was still in touch with Ryan when he died. He still had a lot of goals (he wanted to make movies) but unfortunately he was a bit of a mess. Never heard this foul play stuff before, though. Sounds like hearsay.

Ryan D. Johnson Bath TWP

BATH TWP. – A million-dollar “smart house” bought by a local Internet entrepreneur may soon be on the auction block to be sold for back taxes and mortgage payments.

Ryan D. Johnson, 22, bought the glass-fronted showpiece listed at$1.1 million in 2003 for $933,000.

Only two years after the purchase, however, police reports indicate that Johnson has done $100,000 damage to the house.

In May, he was declared incompetent to stand trial on a charge of contempt of court, and last month a judge ordered that he receive 60 days of inpatient care for mental illness.

An order to sell Johnson’s house is now being sought by WMC Mortgage Corp. of Woodland Hills, Calif., in Summit County Common Pleas Court. A motion for the foreclosure states he owes $190,876 in delinquent mortgage payments and interest. County records show he also is behind $31,922 in property taxes. The house is now valued at $840,000.

Lawyer Frank Pignatelli declined to comment on behalf of his client. He said Johnson is doing well in treatment at Northcoast Behavioral Healthcare, but he declined to discuss the nature of Johnson’s illness.

“It’s my understanding that once he is restored to competency, he will obviously return to the property and preserve his interests,” Pignatelli said.

While Johnson is receiving court-ordered care, his contempt case in Akron Municipal Court is on hold. Upon his release, he also will resume one year of probation from a previous case.That case stemmed from an incident in April when Bath police discovered Johnson threatening to jump off the roof of his Granger Road house.

Although the foreclosure lawsuit was filed in civil court in August 2004, Johnson has yet to be served with it because the street address, taken by the court from the mortgage, was incorrect.

A new summons with the correct address was issued July 7, but it is unclear whether the foreclosure process will continue while questions about Johnson’s mental competency are settled.

Court documents indicate he has not hired a lawyer for the foreclosure. A spokesman for Judge Marvin Shapiro’s office said the civil court had not been notified of Johnson’s mental difficulties or his incarceration.

The “smart house”

Johnson’s 4,200-square-foot house in the upscale suburb west of Akron was the subject of a hyped billboard campaign to attract athletes LeBron James or Ben Curtis as potential buyers. But the house seemed a fated match for the Cuyahoga Falls High School graduate and self-described computer consultant who said he made his money in Internet ventures.

It was built in 1991 and billed as a house of the 21st century. The white multistory house near a waterfall on Yellow Creek features a computer that warns of approaching visitors and, at the sound of its owner’s voice, opens and closes banks of windows and stops and starts the whirlpool, laundry, heater and air conditioner.

In an interview shortly after he moved in, Johnson told the Akron Beacon Journal he would live in the house with buddies, and he looked forward to having his family over for Thanksgiving.

Johnson said his father was supportive, but his mother was worried about the expense. “She thinks I’m going to be like Mike Tyson and spend all my money, then go living on the streets.”

Neither of Johnson’s parents could be reached for comment for this article, and friends contacted for comment did not return telephone messages.

Run-ins with police

Public documents give some of the details of Johnson’s time on Granger Road.

Court documents show he was delinquent on his 30-year mortgage eight months after signing for the loan.

In the spring of 2004, Bath police reported that Johnson smashed a two-month-old Volkswagen Toureg blaring rock music through the security gate of his house, plowed the car into a tree and then beat it with golf clubs and boulders. A Mercedes SL500 was found parked in Yellow Creek under the bridge to the then-20-year-old’s mansion.

Johnson wasn’t breaking any laws by breaking up his cars on his property, so police went away after the music died down and they were certain no one was injured.

There were also other, minor run-ins with the law. A month earlier, Johnson was arrested on a charge of obstructing official business when he refused to produce a driver’s license or remain in his car while being cited for a fire-lane violation at Summit Mall.

Neighbors notice him

Since then, Johnson and his house — now obscured by boarded-up windows and a long-neglected front yard full of waving, weedy grass — have become a neighborhood mystery, the subject of dinner-party speculation.

“It’s abandoned now,” Granger Road neighbor Bob Gold said of the local landmark. “There’s a small, packedDumpster and furniture scattered out in front of the garage.”

Seeing the disarray wasn’t Gold’s first clue that unusual events were taking place beyond Johnson’s winding drive. “I used to have my office down the road, so I passed there every day,” Gold said. “By coincidence, the day he drove that thing into the creek, I was following him. I saw this Porsche racing by, followed by an SUV. Of course, when it pulled in the drive, I kept going.”

Later, on television, Gold saw Johnson’s car in the creek.

Gold remembers the last time he saw his neighbor in person. “He was sitting out on the edge of the drive in a bridge chair,” Gold said, “just kind of waving … ”

More police calls

In April, police calls to the Johnson residence picked up again.

On the 10th, neighbor Billy Poole signed a warrant against Johnson for turfing back yards behind his Wye Road house.

Poole called Johnson’s cell phone asking him to pay to repair about $100 in damage. He never got an answer.

“I felt bad for the kid,” Poole said. “I didn’t want to get anyone in trouble because they got stuck in my back yard, but the police wanted him.”

The next day, a guest at Johnson’s house called police for help, worried about his friend’s safety.

Chief Michael McNeely said Johnson was found agitated, breaking out windows and beating his living room walls with a sledgehammer.

And at some point, he had re-created his living room outdoors by moving his furniture into Yellow Creek.

“He had the tables and the sofas, and he even put lamps out there,” McNeely said.

Police said Johnson told them his idea was to get people to pay to log on to the Internet to watch him destroy his house, and he might sell the footage to MTV. The Web address Johnson gave police,, was not operating Sunday.

In the house, McNeely said, police found a collection of swords and thousands of plastic water bottles piled 1 to 2 feet deep on the living room floor.

The bottles were used to break Johnson’s fall when he jumped from a second-floor landing, McNeely said. Johnson had been running from level to level.

Outside, he jumped from tier to tier of the roof. Police said he threatened to jump off rather than be taken to a hospital.

Johnson made his last stand in the creek waving a garden tool. “I can’t remember what he had,” McNeely said. “It was a shovel or a rake. We got him out of the water, but he kicked one officer in the side, I believe.”

The officer was not seriously hurt.

Johnson is to appear before Akron Municipal Judge Lynne Callahan at 10 a.m. July 27 to determine whether he is competent to be released and to continue his contempt case.

Bath Township man wanted ex-girlfriend to know that money has no value to him

By Gina Mace

Special to the Beacon Journal

BATH TWP. – In an effort to prove to his ex-girlfriend that money means nothing, a 20-year-old Granger Road man smashed an SUV and sent another luxury vehicle into a creek, township police said.
A 2-month-old Volkswagen Touareg blaring rock music from the sound system sat in the front yard of Ryan Johnson’s home Monday — severely damaged from smashing through the security gate, uprooting a tree, then being assaulted by golf clubs and boulders. A Mercedes SL500 was parked in Yellow Creek, under the driveway bridge leading to Johnson’s mansion.

The two vehicles were worth more than $100,000, police said.
Johnson told police he did it for his ex-girlfriend. Last week, she asked police to accompany her to the home so she could remove some belongings.

Police were called to Johnson’s home around 3 p.m. Monday by neighbors who thought they heard an explosion.

One neighbor, who asked not to be identified, said he went outside after hearing the noise.

“People were running around, making sure everyone was OK,” the man said. “A kid was out there with huge boulders, breaking out windows. He was throwing stones at it. Later he came out with a set of golf clubs and was teeing off on it.”

The “kid,” identified by police as Johnson, was still smashing the SUV when police arrived. (more…)

Detectives discover moonshine amid Murrells Inlet death investigation

MURRELLS INLET, SC (WMBF) – One man was confirmed deceased at a condo unit at the Royal Garden Resort, located off Waccamaw Drive North.

Detectives and special operations units responded to the scene at a condo unit in Murrells Inlet on Monday afternoon.

Brandon Tarlton, 40, of Murrells Inlet was found deceased at the condo. The autopsy revealed that he died of natural causes, according to Horry County Deputy Coroner Darris Fowler.

According to Chief Norman Knight with Murrells Inlet Garden City Fire Rescue, they originally responded to a cardiac arrest call and soon after entering the condo on the tenth floor, they called for back up.

Knight explains they found suspicious chemicals and cleared the 9th, 10th and 11th floors.

“The fire guys that went in there, they went in with detectors and stuff to see if there were any chemicals involved – any, you know, residual anything in there. Police have their guys up there taking pictures and the coroners up there.”

Investigators stayed on the scene to test material from a large container, or drum. It was later determined to be moonshine in the drum.

Neighbors watched as emergency responders worked to figure out if the chemical was hazardous.

“Hazardous materials waste baskets and stuff like that is what we watched them take in,” explained Clint Snuggs.

According to the County Coroners Office, there is no foul play detected.

A friend of the victim was on scene and told WMBF News the man lived in the resort by himself.

She also said Tarlton had heart problems.

North Waccamaw Drive from Calhoun Drive and Seabreeze Drive was closed, as well as Vista Drive while authorities conducted the investigation.

Christopher Desrochers “c0rpze” RIP.


Honestly,  when I started this Tumblr account  I had no idea I would be writing about someone I was so close with on AOL.  If you look back in all my previous Progs, Websites there was always a select few shout outs and it was (Kaze, C0rpze, Kittie, ECW).


I recently came in contact with Kaze/Todd someone I haven’t spoken with in almost 15 years.  (My partner in Crime from AOL).  I found an old floppy disk with a bunch of contact phone numbers.  I had no idea what Todd’s or Chris’s last name was all I could remember was they where from NH.


So I did a little digging around on Spokeo/Google- I remembered what e-mail accounts they used all the time and just like that I instantly found out their info.


I wish I got reunited with Kaze a few years earlier.  I couldn’t believe the news he told me: that his brother passed away in 2008.  I was in total fucking shock.  I was just waiting for him to tell me “yo man this is chris’s facebook” and just reminisce on old times back in the AOL days.


I chatted with these 2 from 1998 until around 2005 almost every day.  I chatted with them more than friends I knew in real life.  I tried locating them years ago but never could I don’t know what changed since then or why I was able to find him so quickly this time.  I’m just happy we where able to chat once again.


Shit brought back so many memories.  From talking on conference lines, calling cards (yeah remember those?), prank calling, sneaking in AOL Kids Only after 12:00, programming, raising hell in chatrooms, cracking 3chars, spamming.


I’m gonna miss this dude so much.  It seems so unreal.  Growing up and getting old sucks, I wish I could just travel back in time to the pr pokemon days, where I never thought I would grow up this fast / aol&aim would never disappear.


RIP Chris / C0rpze  – I will never forget ya bro.  I wish heaven had an internet connection.


I still remember Chris/C0rpze’s screen name’s : (JLT200) (iOX) (c0rpze)
