It is with heavy heart that that must report the death of Joshua McCracken, known to many in Second Life as the infamous DeadlyCodec, on October 18, 2010 at approximately 5:10 PM Eastern Standard Time in Augusta Georgia, of complications of Acquired Immunity Deficiency Syndrome.  McCracken was 25 years old.

McCracken’s life had not been an easy one, but he was a gifted writer and well on his way to a career in journalism before his decline due to the ultimately fatal disease which took his life.  He routinely wrote for the independent newspaper “The Augusta Spirit.”

McCracken leaves behind parents, sisters Sariah, Kimberly and Virginia, and brother Jacob. and the Justice League extend our sincere and heartfelt condolences to the McCracken family.  There is no greater loss than potential unrealized, or the death of a son.
