Ave Maria Mourns Loss of Luke Scheck

lukescheck200Remembrances, condolences and prayers poured out Monday as town residents and former classmates of Luke Scheck heard the news that the popular young Ave Maria man had died that morning at age 22.

His death is being investigated by Collier County Sheriff's Office detectives. Police were called Monday morning about reports that a young man was behaving erratically. He eventually ran from police and went into one of the town lakes where he became unresponsive, police said.

"A beautiful soul," said one friend on Facebook. Others remembered the popular young man as fun, smart and engaging. (Right, Luke Scheck when he was a standout football player for Donahue Academy)
