I am Roger DeWayne Fulk's 1st wife...Altogether I have known DeWayne for 20 years...Even after our divorce in 1994, he always had a piece of my heart and he always will...I have the memories that we shared together and no one can ever have them...He was a good man...I got to see the sensitive side to him...I seen a part of him that most people never got to see...He had a good heart...They need to let the people who knew and loved him know exactly why this took place...I do not understand why and how this was allowed to happen...For one thing committing suicide was not in DeWayne's character...We are grieving over him and we need to know why...And how in the world was he able to have shoe strings in jail...There are alot of questions that need to be answered...He has a family that loved him and is grieving over him...He has a daughter that is without her dad now...Somebody needs to give us some answers...The people covering these articles need to make sure that they get the facts correct...He was 37 years old...He would have been 38 on September 3rd...For DeWayne you will be loved and missed forever Rest in Peace...

I was Dewayne's cousin and I, also, do not appreciate all the mix ups in this story. There are a lot of left out details that are not fair to the ones that loved him so much. like others have said, I do not believe for one second, that he had it in him to hang himself, or to committ suicide for that damn matter. I believe their was foul play. There had been a PERSON that kept mentioning that she had connections and could have him killed, everyone should know who I am talking about, and next thing you know he is in jail, and dead the shortly after. Come on. This is NOT rocket science. There was foul play. And if anyone knows that you can do this, and wants to, just know that if you are a loved one of Dewayne, you may request to see the video tape of the cell that he was in. I am telling all of you right now: Dewayne DID NOT kill himself. HE WAS KILLED and we all need to get together and demand answers, starting with Lagrange jail. And also ask why Tina seems to be getting away with EVERYTHING. I think that it is ALL bullshit, and it needs to stop today. We all need answers and they are owed to us.

we all think the same thing, i dont know how to go about to request to see the tape but i would like too. the last letter he wrote to me i got to read and there is just no way he could do it. ive tryed talkin 2 a few people and was told by one of them to just drop and leave it alone cuz hes already dead. but i REFUSE too. i plan to do whatever i can in my power, and yes she has goten away with 2 much,

I to agree with what the other's have said, dewayne was not the type of person to take his own LIFE. I truly hope that the fulk's family get some answer's to this unforgiveable act.

first of all,why is this report putting all the attention on chadrick? to make dewayne look like a bad person as well? this is ALL totally WRONG!!!the only person he EVER hurt was himself,PERIOD!!!,I guess tina(the corrections officer that helped chad),got her wish,destroyed 2 brothers.chad needs questioned about her,she told him what was going to happen to dewayne before it ever happened,i find this odd...don't you?

WOW!!! this is prolly the second saddest day of my life, D and me were closer than brothers growing up, we drifted apart as time passed like it does but there was never a time after that we would run into each other and not get those big goofy grins that we knew as kids, i'm so sorry to hear about your loss guys, you were the best family i never had.

I know for a fact most of these people are lying through their teeth!!!! For one, Candace is a lying hypocrit! ", I do not believe for one second, that he had it in him to hang himself, or to committ suicide for that damn matter." this come from her statement above, then she tells Dwaynes daughter that her dad did commit suicide and that he as going to burn in hell..... this coming from a "christian" woman!!!! I thought christians was'nt supposed to cast judgement!!!
