Don't kid yourself, prison is exactly where he'll end up.

You need to prepare yourselves for that reality.

What is the facebook address that shows legal evidence that she had suicidal feelings.
They deleted her status updates and comments talking about her suicidal feelings. I'm sure it was the family or a friend trying to hide her true feelings. I understand why, they probably didn't want her to be remembered by those sad comments.

This is true, but sadly enough, everyone knew ... or should have known. The writing was on the wall, so to speak. Very clearly. She was in need of grief counseling & suicide intervention. I hope that she was getting help, otherwise, what does that say about those supporting her?

I'm very curious though... Why did Mikey drive his car into that pole? What happened? Anyone have any theories? There's a lot of info on Rachel, but not much out there on Mikey.
Message to Mikey: If you ever read this.. I hope you're healthy and a lot wiser.
All the best to both families..

No one will no why Mikey drove into the pole until he is with it enough to even be able to speak (and that is if he even remembers.) However, speaking as someone who went to high school with him (had classes, had some friends in common - but mostly traveled in different circles) many of my friends who are still friends with him have speculated.
The jist of what I hear is that Mikey is the kind of guy who takes on peoples personalities and moods. If you were up then he was up if you were down he was down. A lot of my friends think that he knew Rachel was suicidal and wanted to help but maybe got caught up in it all.
This is purely speculation on my part - but it does come from people who are around him often and in the end, even after all the speculation I know his friends and family are still asking "why" too.:(

Although I'm very sorry for your loss.. I have to agree with "Neighbor" for the most part. I didn't know Rachel but have her as a friend on my-space since her boyfriends death back in July was posted in the news. She clearly was depressed. You can tell in her statuses, poems, blogs and she would even talk about it. I don't think suicide is selfish, but it is in the form where you bring in the chance of other people witnessing it.(Car accident, golf course, etc..) I hope you and your family get through this, and are able to carry on a good life. This is very tragic to happen, but I really don't see how you can say she wasn't suicidal or not dealing with it well. I was just a online friend and could blatantly see that she was very emotionally disturbed since her boyfriend passed. First part of grieving and dealing with a event like this is being honest with what was right in front of you. Could you of prevented it? Maybe. But, to be honest, I doubt it. They were both very in love with one another and maybe this is what she truly wanted. Signs were all there. I hope the guy in the vehicle recovers, fully. Then again if his purpose was to kill himself, also.. I don't see why any charges should be put upon him. Him being a new friend or not it's not like he could tell he was going to live through the accident. I'm actually surprised he did, the car was SPLIT in half and totally unrecognizable. If someone wants to kill themselves, truly kill themselves, they WILL find a way. Prayers to you and your family. It's a long grieving process and I wish you the best. Really.

This story is so very sad. The loss of 2 lives and a young man fighting for his life. I don't know what happen in that care, what I do know is two families are dealing with heart ache and Mike's poor family is living in limbo. I hope Rachel and Jard found their happily ever after, I wish Mike a full recovery and I wish all their families and friends peace and love. God Bless you all

Thanks for the reply, I'm sure "why?" is a common question with everyone. What you're saying makes sense...It's just craziness though. Suicide is the most selfish thing anyone could ever do...they hurt people they never knew they would hurt.

So wait, was Mikey buckled into his seat belt and Rachel wasn't? If that's the case that's pretty telling, I mean, if I'm driving in a car with the intent to kill myself, I'm sure as heck not wearing a seatbelt?!

Well that's my family. Just please stop. I'm only 14 and I don't appreciate how you guys keep talking about her. Seriously. I JUST lost my cousin.
who cares that you are only 14? then maybe someone should be supervising your computer usage so you don't have to see how you're cousin really was. PSYCHO. but i guess they're just paying as much attention to you as they did to her.

Its not hurting you so please don't spread negativity about that which you don't know a thing. Sorry to be so forceful in my reply, but I have a right to freedom of expression in this country. Its what my son is fighting for in Iraq. I will continue to put it there and I call upon all who loved Rachel to so the same. Sorry to be negative to you sir. Forgive my outburst.
why don't ya'll stop making these people out to be some sort of heroes that need to be celebrated and have shrines put up for? she committed suicide, she's a coward, why celebrate that?

How did this case turn out? Did the young man, Michael Crispin, survive? Were charges pressed? I hope family is remembering the life of Rachel, and her beauty and love.

It makes me sad to this day... I never got a chance to say goodbye. I was not informed till weeks after this all happened.... I loved her so much. She was a big part of my life... I just want closure... Even these several years later i still have no idea what really happened. The fact that some of you people have to go on here and ridicule a young woman you never knew is a disgrace! Karma will catch up to you... Rachel, you were the world to me kid. Rest in Peace....
