  1. Why would you create a headline that infers these people were charged with this kid’s death? All parties went through a tragedy, and now they are cast in a murderous light. This is why the public hates the media.
    Just for click bait.
    Please correct your headline.

  2. Thank you for covering this. This means negligence contributed to the death of a young man. He should suffer the consequences.

  3. The Parents of the boys don’t think so. We are supporting Casey. No charges from Lucas’ parents. Maybe just a bad situation and they need to find a scapegoat. What does this accomplish?
