I am the fiancé of David Welk. And I have a few things to say. He does have a permanent address unlike the Montana State Police and Prosecutors have said that he is a nomad that runs all over the country with no permanent address. David lived in Minnesota at the same address from 1978 til we moved to Indiana about 2 years ago. He has his vehicle registered at our Indiana address plus his mail and his CDL are all at our address. David Welk is a man who has never been arrested in his life...no criminal history...but they hunted him down like an animal. He does not drink or do drugs. He is the most sensitive man I know. He did not hit the Alaska man nor did he scream he hit someone. And if this man was such a worldly traveler what was he doing in the west bound lanes of an interstate when PEDESTRIANS ARE PROHIBITED ON ALL INTERSTATES..... David has never denied that he hit something not someone on I-90. He did not leave the scene of any accident. The Youngs are the ones that hit and killed the Alaska man. For Christs sake they found the mans face, arm, fingers, and other evidence at the car wash where they attempted to remove any and all of the evidence from their pick up truck. But they failed. Court records show when the pick up truck of the Youngs was seized it had bone, human tissue and dna from the Alaska man. And court records also show that when the police went to seize pick up truck that whoever answered the door yelled "mom, dad, police are here about Montana..And all the evidence proves they hit the man and tried to cover it up. The semi had no dna or any other sign of hitting the Alaska man. When David pulled over after hitting something another semi truck driver told Mike Karls (co-driver) on the cb radio he just saw them hit a bear. Mike Karls had just crawled out from the sleeper when the man came on the cb radio and told them. David had pulled over to the shoulder and they decided to go to next exit and come back and check it out. And they did. There was nothing in the road, no clothes, no duffle bag...there was nothing. Mike Karls only called Montana 2 weeks after he lost his job at CRST because he refused to take a drug test for CRST. He had asked David to pee for him because he said he could not pass it cuz he uses methamphetamine on a regular basis. so CRST fired him he did not quit. Mike Karls is a career criminal and a methamphetamine addict. He has been in and out of groups home and juvenile detention centers in his younger years and his adult years he has been in and out of prison all his life. Mike Karls told me that he would make David pay for him losing his job. He told me all he had to do was pee so he could pass the test and keep his job. Mike Karls and David had never got along since CRST had put them together as a team. Montana Police had our address in Indiana and our phone number but not once have we heard from them since David was questioned by Ohio State Patrol. Nor had anyone came to our home. I have phone records to prove we contacted Montana but no one ever got back to us on this issue. They hunted an innocent man down like an animal with GPS ON ONE OF MY PHONES causing him to lose his job and our means of paying our bills including heat and food. Thanks to the poor investigating skills and the laziness of the Montana State Police and Prosecutors on this case. They need to drop all charges on David Welk due to lack of evidence. They based their case on an affidavit of a man who is a career criminal and a methamphetamine addict. The company who does all DOT drug screens can verify that Mike Karls has failed drug test for methamphetamines in 2013

renee, where are you getting your information? i can understand you being angry but your bald face lies are nothing but lies and it is slander! 1, i did quit crst and was planning to for a month dave could tell you this. 2, i have never talked to you only once at your house months before this happened. 3. i never asked dave for urine to pass a drug test. 4.i have never failed a drug test as u say i am not a meth addict like you claim. 5. i have never been in any group home. 6. i am not a career criminal. 7.i have never been to prison as you claim. all of these lies you are claiming of me are very easy to prove and i cannot understand how you would think these lies would help your case. had i known he ran over a human being that truck would not have moved one inch. m karls
