Louis Cameron Rodriguez was Street Poet: Occupy OKC Street Poet Identified

The first death of the entire Occupy movement happened at Occupy Oklahoma City (OccupyOKC). The man was said to be homeless and in his 20’s or 30’s. The story I’ve linked below says he is 18-20 years old. He certainly looked nowhere near 30. The ‘Street Poet’ has been identified as Louis Cameron Rodriguez. He was found dead in a tent. His death is being treated as a homicide until toxicology is determined. First reports said it appeared his death was of natural causes, so there were no visible signs of trauma. Read my original story here.

    This man was a man to be admired. After sharing a tent for a week downtown, I feel a great loss. He was a person thy referred to as Mr Awesome…His spirit was more than Awesome. It is a loss to the world, that few can understand.
