This was my step-son and was very loved. I sure hope Chadwick Carter has to pay dearly for taking our son. Jail time for a long time would give him time to think about his action. Chad was very loved by everyone.

Im so sorry for your loss. It was a tragic way to die. I think everyone that wants to drink and drive and get caught should be put away for life and have thier lives ruined. They are only thinking of themselves when they get behind the wheel. They dont care whos lives they ruin. And I think they should be put in a jail out in the middle of the desert with no air conditioning no tv, no nothing but a cell to rot in. I might sound awful saying this but Im tired of seeing people lose thier loved ones over an Idiot Drunk Driver. <><

I am curious who you are, Sheila. How is Chad Fuqua your step-son? Chad's Dad is my uncle and the only way Chad could have been your step son is if you were married to him. To the best of my knowledge, he was never married to a Sheila.

Yes, you are well-named. I would call you a lot more than that if I were to ever meet you. Fact is, I just might do a little more than call you names, if you get my drift, you idiot.
You must have thought you were really funny when you typed those words. I'm wondering what you would have typed if Chad Fuqua had been a family member or a good friend.
Chad Fuqua was my neighbor and my dear friend. The thought of some clown like you making a joke out of this makes me sick to my stomach.

Funny.
You are one sick person. You need to seek help and be banned from the use of computers. I pray the day you lose someone you love...if there is such a person...and I question if there is someone who can love you back with your sick and insensitive thinking. STOP TALKING ABOUT THIS SITUATION...YOU KNOW ABSOLUTELY NOTHING OF THE DETAILS.

Yes you are, You need to have God in your life. I feel sorry for you cause I sounds like you are a attention getter and you have no life at all. You ought to be ashamed of yourself for talking bad about someone that died a terrible death. God rest his soul. I hope your mama never finds out how nasty you are, she would be ashamed of even being related to you.

Nancy: Sheila is married to Jack McCord Chad's stepfather who was married to Vonnie after Unlce Lee. He was a huge part in Chad's life and they have remained very close after him and Vonnie split up. Lv, Becky

I am Truley sorry for your loss. I feel that God has his hand in all situations and He will be the one to Judge everyone when it comes time. However, I don't feel it is right that you listen to the comments that were made on the news and on the radio, they are just trying to get listeners. My Friend Chad Carter will have to live with this for the rest of his life. Just because someone makes a comment about him being intoxicated doesn't mean that it is true. You have said these terrible things about Chad Carter that is a father, a son, a brother and a soon to be uncle and a great friend. It was a freak accident and I feel like you are making judgments on this subject too soon. Please pray about your thoughts before you put them down, maybe God will give you the answer that you are looking for.

Hmmm, let's look at this for what it really is. Chad Carter attended College of the Ozarks during the time when a student killed another student under similar circumstances. There is too much education out there on drinking and driving for anyone, especially Chad Carter- to have any excuse for knowingly and willingly taking the wheel after drinking. Them good ol boys used to race down critter road with mary jane rotten crotch and suck down the cold ones. Then afterwards, it was a race to C of O before curfew. It is a miracle Chad Carer didn't kill anyone before this. Nothing can bring back the life he took, not even the pain he will endure on his honeymoon night with Bubba in prison. I hope Chad Carter gets the maximum prison term.

I am sorry that you feel that much pain. No one should have to go though what the family and friends of Chad Fuqua has went through. But just so you know, Chad Carter's Blood test came back and was revealed in court. It was way under the LEGAL limit. It came back at 0.012. This was truely an accident. It could've happened to anyone. I will admit that Chad Carter has a past, but then again, who doesn't. It is really your place to judge?

The legal system is capable of calculating the alcohol test backwards to see what Chad Carter's lovel was 4.5 hours before he was tested after a court order had to be required because he knew he was guilty and would not fully cooperate.

Yes - I have the right to judge - Chad Carter killed my cousin -.012 over 5-hours later!!! What would his BAC level had been had he NOT refused at the scene to take a road test on recommendations from his attorney Allen that he called before calling 911? I bet way over .012 - do you not think that this is a consideration to find probabale cause? They have ways of calculating his true BAC at the time of the accident. Sorry - but your FRIEND was drunk!! They just had to get a warrent to test him 5-hours LATER!!!!! Your FRIEND killed my cousin who is missed EVERYDAY EVERY MOMENT - I live with that!!!! The least Chad Carter can do is live with that in a cell for 5 to 15 years - at least he will get parole - but my cousin will NOT!!!

They got the test 4 hours later and there is no way even adding 4 hours back on that he is over the legal limit. He was NOT drunk. Not even at the scene. Don't you think there is a reason why your cousin crashed in to the back of Carter's vehicle. Oh but, were you at the scene, so you know that he called Allen before 911, or again, are you just going off what everyone else has said. Did you stop to think that maybe someone else had already called 911??? I guess we will all find out all of the FACTS sooner ar later. I'm sorry that you are so bitter. Again, I am sorry that you lost your cousin. That is so terrible, words can't even describe it. I pray for you family everyday. I think about your family everyday.

Well - the family was told directly by the authorities that Chad Carter called his attorney Allen before 911 - Oh or were you there??? Maybe the authorities were mistaken and you have first hand knowledge or you were the one to call 911?? Whatever the case DRUNK or not - that will simply add to the fact that Chad CARTER made an illegal U-turn on an overpass that CAUSED MY COUSIN to hit the back of the big A!! Hummer - idiot. Get a clue - Oh and BITTER?? You bet ya - I don't have a family member here on earth to love - because CARTER drunk or NOT could not just take his lazy A!! down the road and turn around legally.. Have You Thought About that ONE??? Would my cousin have hit the back of Chad CARTER's hummer if he'd driven down the road and did what was responsibile and not put ANYONE at risk - he is to blame - DRUNK or not???

Chad had to die because of the sins of his mother who had an affair with a married man (Bryan). Karma came back and bit her in the a!!, hard. It is unfortunate that innocent people were affected.
