Alicia was a dear friend of mine. She was a wonderful daughter, sister, mother, and friend whose life was cut short in April 2007. She was full of life and was always up for an adventure. She is missed by everyone who knew and loved her. Her tragic death has long been a mystery, which has just caused more heartache for her family. Nobody knows what truly happened to Alicia, except her boyfriend, Jeremy Boyd. I know a ton of people in the area knows Jeremy & this post isn't meant to condemn him or point fingers at him. If he was honestly the only person who knows the absolute truth, then it is up to the Lord Almighty to truly punish the guilty. I am posting this in hopes that somebody may be able to shed some light on the events that happened to Alicia that night. As her friend, I am just trying to gather information and maybe someway, be able to help her family find some peace and have a little more closure. Please be respectful of Alicia and the fact that she is deceased and unable to defend herself. I have been reading over some posts on here and there are some really childish, disrespectful, immature people out there who like to try to stir up trouble. I appreciate any information, as I am desperate to piece together the puzzle pieces. Jeremy told multiple different stories about what happened that night, none of which made much sense. This has not helped to paint a very clear picture of what really happened. Again, I am posting this out of love and concern, so please be respectful. Thank you to everyone who reads this post and a special thank you to anyone who responds as a decent human being. IN LOVING MEMORY OF ALICIA JAYNE THOMAS SMITH!!! You will never be forgotten and you will always be loved my friend.

In addition, I am aware that Jeremy is now serving time for this incident (a 4 1/2 year sentence in exchange for whatever happened to take her entire life). As I stated originally, I am not trying to condemn him or trash talk him, so no need for people to get all defensive.

I am Alicia's sister. I am not here to attack anyone including Jeremy. There IS someone who knows what happened that night and that person is JEREMY BOYD. He just chooses not to tell. I am making a public plea from the bottom of my broken heart for you to tell us what he said happened. The story changed dramaticly from what he said happened to what the police said happened. I contacted America's Most Wanted and a group that frees the innocent and they are willing to put this on tv if he is willing to do an interview to help find the driver (if it wasnt Jeremy). I contacted Ruth and Randy Rogers office about getting him to do an interview. All we want is the truth and we have been denied that from day one. I have NEVER disputed the fact that Jeremy and his family loved Alicia. If you do not believe me ask Ruth. She knows that I have done nothing to Jeremy or his family. I went to the McMinn county jail and BEGGED him to talk to me. All I wanted to do was offer him the chance to clear his name and he refused to see me. So please if you know what happened or even what he said happened, please please tell me. We are ALL suffering over this, both families, Jeremys and ours. Every moment of every hour of every year that passes that we have to go visit a piece of ground instead of our precious Alicia. Could you please put yourself in my shoes and think of how it feels to not know what happened to your sister in her final moments of life? please take that into consideration. I am here patiently waiting to hear from you or even Jeremy. Again, I have an agent at Project Justice, a group that frees the innocent and AMW to help find the guilty ones if Jeremy would choose to help me to help him. I give you my word if he is innocent and was truely not driving the car, I will help to free him. If not and he was driving the car then let us know so we dont have to wake up from nightmares every night wondering what really happened. He has aleady been convicted, he cant be charged again so how can it hurt?

Friend of Jeremy, I appreciate your loyalty to your friend. But you were not there that night. That night, a mother, children, brothers and sisters etc etc, lost one of the most important people in their life.. in the prime of this young womans life. Please walk a mile in their shoes before you make these public biased statements. He may be a perfect gentleman to you, but considering he is the only person on Gods green earth that knows what transpired that night, and he wont talk.. That speaks volumes. And what little bit has been said, stories change ?? Somehow, this doesnt sit well within me. Their lives changed that night more than anybody could ever imagine, and this family might never have answers. Please, have enough courtesy to this family, to not defend something you know nothing about. You werent there. I am a very close friend to one of alicias family members, and i know the struggles they face on a daily basis. Please remember before you defend this man, and disrespect this family --you werent there. Oh.. one more question.. please enlighten me why you would consider dating a man, that his previous girlfriend was in a fatal accident in his presence, and you (nor the police) have no idea what happened?..no idea what happened?? really? please enlighten.

Friends: I appreciate your loveand concern for Jeremy, but as Mercedes pointed out...you weren't there, you only know what Jeremy told you. If he was guilty of anything, do you honestly think he would admit it to you? Someone he was "friends" with and wanted to date? Of course he would proclaim his undying love for Alicia to you in order to gain your pity & he could use that as an "out" for anything bad that happened between you. "Poor Jeremy lost the love of his life & I can never fill that void..." excuse me for my next comment, but please dont be so naive! If you have so much faith in him, then tell us what he has said about that night. I don't believe that he did anything malicious that night, and I dont believe that he ever intended to hurt Alicia, especially not kill her. If he feels like he has nothing at all to hide, then why did he lie? How do I know he lied? Because he told too many different stories to too many different people! If someone is truthful, then there is only ONE truth & it will not vary according to the day or the person or the mood, nothing changes the truth. Was he high or drunk that night? Maybe he honestly doesn't even completely remember what happened that night, but if thats the case, then why can't he just admit it? If someone that I loved sooo much died & I was there or had anything to do with it, then why would I lie if my life would never be complete or truly happy? I am very good friends with Alicia's entire family & I love them, I just want to see them find a little sense of peace. I will never forget the phone call I got that night or that night in the hospital. I think about Alicia and that night every day. Jeremy gets to continue living his life after this short stent in jail...no big loss for him. It (that night) was actually just a slight roadbump in his life, it was a bottomless pit for Alicia and her family & everyone else who never had the chance to say goodbye to her.

I can not believe that you (guess who) would be so childish as to bring that to our attention and try to cause pain and additional suffering for your own amusement. My sister is resting with God and believe me, Jeremy may have escaped justice on this earth but he will be burning in hell for eternity for what he did. He may not be in jail here anymore but if there is an ounce of decency in his body(which he has proved there is not) then he will have nightmares for the rest of his life like we do. I hope that the nightly cries from her children for their murdered mother ring in his ears forever. So, guess who, go and rejoice in the fact that you have caused more heartache. I hope that you are proud of yourself.

I used to live on Main St. The night of the incident there was a small black car with a loud muffler that absolutely FLEW up and down the road 4 or 5 times, I thought it was just annoying youngsters trying to jump the hill and when I heard the sirens about 10 minutes later my first thought was that they had wrecked. I wish I could be more help to you, but I could not identify the car because it was dark and my eyesight is failing a little. I hope this may help you and God Bless all the families involved.

we know of that car because Jeremy himself said that it was Bradley Newman, even tried to lead the police to believe that he is the one that was driving the phantom car. Thankfully there was a witness that did identify the car and the driver. the car was identified as my sisters car and the driver as none other than Jeremy. He even admitted to being the one that was driving in open court. That is not what is in question, we want to know the truth about how it happened cause we do know what happened, it is how it happened that we wonder about, did she speak? Did she cry out for our mother? Did she cry out for her children? Why did he call his mom to drive all the way from her house BEFORE calling 911 while my sister laid there in the grass like a dying dog? All of this has been proven with phone records by the police. Why was she dressed differently then when my mother had saw her earlier that day and why did we never recover the clothes and shoes that she was wearing? Where are her glasses that she could not see without? Alot of her personal things were gone, including the remainder of her money from her paycheck she had just cashed that day. My mom had been with her that day and knows she didnt spend it. There are so so many questions that he didnt answer and didnt answer truthfully if he did answer them. Like I said before, I went so far as to contact americas most wanted and project justice to HELP him prove he was innocent and to find the one that was driving. I heard nothing from him or from his lawyer. Silence speaks volumes in my opinion. I appreciate you commenting and I welcome any and all respectful comments here. We are just trying to find the truth. We never got to say goodbye, because by the time Jeremy came up with a story and waited on his mom to call 911 it was too late. There are so many other times that he had beat her up and she survived that he probably just thought it was another one of those times, Unfortunately, he was wrong.

Additionally, for those of you that are not aware, Alicia was NOT joyriding on the back of the car like he said that she was to cover his tracks. She was hit by the car and thrown over the top of the car and landed in the street, also proven by the police, autopsy reports, and expert witnesses because of the placement of the injuries and bruises. Not to mention that a witness saw what happened and then saw Jeremy get out of the car, pick her up and put her in the passenger seat, the witness thought he was rushing her to the hospital and instead he took her back home and called his mom. It wasnt until she saw in the paper that Alicia had died and that he had made up a phantom car story that she came forward. Also all proven facts.
