Accidents happen. Mistakes are made. His family will forever be haunted by choices made that are always wrong in hindsight. We all have made poor choices. Let those that never have, cast the first stone....

Is the investigation over?

Give the DA time.

Does any more pain in the family solve anything?

And your facts are from where?

More pain doesn't solve anything, but those who had responsibility in the matter from those who provided alchohol to the person driving even if it was a relative should be accountable and parents letting their teens run the streets at that time...very sad situation. Again, the ADN prints what it wants and leaves out the other.

"choices made that are wrong in HINDSIGHT"? There should have been more FORESIGHT. Yes we have all made poor choices but this was one that has been made way too often. That's why you hear "you drink, you drive, you lose" so often on the tv and radio. How many people have to die in DUI involved "accidents" before we stop excusing them as an "oops"?

This COULD HAVE been prevented.

This SHOULD HAVE been prevented.

The only consolation is that maybe someone else will learn from this incident, if they haven't learned from all the ones before. It certainly holds true that if we don't learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it. Again...and again...and again.

The one who was driving will get a very painful and heightened reminder of their recklessness every year on their birthday. And his mother will get a painfully heightened reminder every year on Mother's Day. This will be on top of the pain that they will feel all year long, and anytime any special family event happens where his presence is sorely missed. It's a pain that only people who have had family members ripped from them in unexpected and preventable ways can understand. Yes, this is sad. And yes, this was most certainly a PREVENTABLE death. But what's sadder is that it won't stop all other preventable deaths due to alcohol and recklessness. We can only hope that it will stop some in their school, or their class, or their family.

The ultimate choice was his. He was like every other teen in the world. We think bad things will never happen to us. I am uber impressed that you NEVER made a stupid choice that could have led to lifelong regrets. Good on ya.

Look i knew Shayne from school and he was cousins with my best friend and my ex look shayne and his twin and their friend were all drunk that night and alot of stuff happend that not many people know. But everyone who is calling Shayne stupid needs to stop.. Shayne just made a choice that he had made many times before and that was drinking he always went to parties every other weekend he always got away with it so did his twin but this time just was diffrent. Everyone involed has told me personally that they would do alot of things diffrent that night. Yes i realize this couldve been avoided but sadly it wasnt. My best friend was at that party and she had talked to Shayne and his twin and their friend right before they all left and she said that if only she didnt let Shayne and them leave he would still be alive. But accidents happen this time it was a very unfortunate accident but people need to stop making assumptions when they dont have the facts!

Nobody is calling Shayne stupid. He's a kid. It's the adult that fed the liguor that allowed "her" to drive intoxicated. I hope the adult gets charged not "her" even tho she was driving.

Fact, They were irresponsible...

Just another example of a minor or adult drinking and driving in New Mexico and someone dying. Now will the justice system respond?

They were in the canyon at their uncle's house drinking...the ADULT needs to be responsible especially for letting them leave after drinking!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, it's the law. Just like bars are held accountable by law for their patrons leaving drunk and driving.

Now imagine a Justice system going after the person who sold a stolen gun to a person who committed a robbery and shot and killed a person, and letting the shooter walk away scott free....We have seen plenty of attempts to go after the provider, But the bottom line is, A minor was drinking, got in a vehicle, drove away under the influence, was responsible for a single vechile accident resulting in a person being deceased. Said minor knew drinking was against the law, and knew that drinking and driving was against the law....Should more than 1 person be investigated, absolutely, The parents, the relatives, the party goers, and espically the driver. Does it makes any thing better, not at all, Is this death any more diffeent than any others in New Mexico, No just means a local event, happens in New Mexico way too many times..

I know very little about this particular incident, but I'm curious...who owned the vehicle that was wrecked?(the boy who died or the driver?)
