“Meth did.

'He's not a murderer. If it wasn't for the meth, I know he wouldn't have done it.”

Originally published Tuesday, Feb. 1, 2005

VIRGIL - Brenda Freisner answered the ringing telephone on the second Friday of the new year.

'Mom, please come get me. I'm scared, and I don't know what to do.'

It was her son, Scott Cheever, and he was in tears. She hadn't seen him since Christmas weekend, when, she said, he had taken his stepfather's car and three handguns from the gun cabinet and disappeared.

Cheever had vanished before - sometimes for several days - while he was on a methamphetamine binge, she said. He would call for help when he had had enough and wanted to clean himself up. Read more

I didn't know scott, but knew Matt and for Scott to brag about killing Matt Samuels all while he's been off meth, you can't tell me for a minute that Meth is what made him do it. I honestly don't know what made Scott do it, but to brag about it afterwards, Scott was and is a horrible man and should be on death row, but I don't feel that he should be able to appeal his case for years either. He did it, he should be held accountable NOW!

Scott I'm so sorry that this happened to you. I have known you since you was young and we didn't talk for years but I still don't see you doing this on purpose. Everyone needs help and everyone makes mistakes.
