Whenever you read something about a welfare check and the police, it’s easy to jump to the worst possible conclusion, but we definitely don’t need to do that.
All we know is that police conducted a welfare check and they reportedly found Barber dead. It’s an incredibly sad situation. Hopefully, the public is able to learn about the details behind his death as quickly as possible.
