It was Chris Riggs. He lived in Frogville for the past 7 yrs. He had been very upset that his best friend David Carter died of double pneumonia and he was a pall bearer yesterday in the funeral but Chris got so upset that he had to leave the funeral.. he started drinking and someone saw him and offered him a ride home late last night but he refused the help and got on someone's motorcycle and didn't make it far from the bar he was at and then he wrecked. It threw him about 60 feet. Please be in prayer for his wife Malinds, family and friends..

does anyone know whose motorcycle he was on? it wasnt very smart to let someone that had been drinking take off on it. seems to me they should be held somewhat accountable.

chris didnt own a motorcycle.i heard someone at the bar let him take off on the bike knowing he had been drinking. very irresponsible on their behalf if that is true they should be held partly responsible for his death.

David Brooks had also been drinking before he went to the bar as well as after he arrived there. Note I am not on any ones side I'm just saying. I do give my respects to the dearly departed and their family and friends. i just mainly know the name of the bikes owner as well as of him.

As sad as it is to say Chris was an adult and made the desicion to get on the motorcycle, the owner whomever they may be did not force him to get on the bike. This is a tragic situation but let this be a lesson about drinking and driving.

people should also use a little common sense. would you hand your car keys to someone that had been drinking so that they could take it for a spin? i wouldnt. that is a no brainer.just goes to show booze makes you lose your sense of judgement.as BOTH did
someone who knows

Have you thought that he could've just gotten on it without even asking? Now if the person did give him the keys then they are an idiot but bottom line is Chris took his life in his own hands by drinking and driving. He was not a very responsible person and he put other peoples lives in danger by getting on that bike drunk.

what idiot leaves their keys in any vehicle at a bar. so they either gave him the keys or lefft them available. and yes he did put peoples life in danger. i think he paid the ultimate price.

The kind of idiot that goes to bar all the time. He did pay the ultimate price, i'm just glad he didnt hurt anyone else.
