I had thought Mr Hamele was getting better and then suddenly he dies a day before he was going to be charged with 8 felonies. I find that pretty suspicious. What internal injuries did he die from? He said to emergency personel at the accident site that he did not know what happened because he was so hopped up on pain killers. Did they find drugs in his system too? I also have wondered if he was not on a suicide mission that day....did he have the loaded hand gun to shoot himself and then couldnt bring himself to do it so he just turned his vehicle into the oncomming lane not caring if he killed anyone else because he was so out of it. Does anyone know how Todd Youngs is?

The 15 year old girl who died Samantha was in my class. When i came to school and had found out that a fellow classmate who i talked to every day had been killed i was devastated. and to know that her best friend had to find out by opening her locker and not finding Sam's stuff there was so hard. And to answer about Todd, i believe he was released from the hospital. When my friends and i had found out that Mr. Hamele had died we were sad for a while and then thought that if he had the nerve to drink so early in the morning and kill three innocent people he deserved to die himself.

Mark (Mr. Hamele) was in a coma up until his death. He carried the gun because he was a former Dane CO. Sheriff and felt the need to carry one. He did so all the time... no signs of suicidal thoughts. He was a very nice man who was injured in the line of duty as a sheriff. His injuries forced an early retirement and lead to pain killer addiction. When the pain killers no longer worked he turned to alcohol. His family that he left behind, now has to try and live down what happened, while keeping their good memories of him alive. I just wanted to clarify that NO he was not contemplating suicide. He was driving drunk illegally.
