This just sickens me. These kids have lost two classmates in a week. And for someone to have no reguards for hitting someone let alone a kid and not even stopping to see if they could help or save him is so inhumane. My heart breaks for his family, I could not imagine losing one of my kids. I dont know where I would find the strength to go on. Yet to have someone hit your child and not even stop or call for help? How can you sleep at night? How can you look yourself in the mirror everyday? How can you breathe knowing you took this young mans life? If you have any morals even a shred or a heart or any care for people in general you will turn yourself in and give this family justice as much as can be given. They can not get their son back. They will have no more birthdays holidays or I love you as he leaves them. But you... you can muster up the gull to eat and live when this young man cannt. I didn't even know this boy and it sickens me so much I got no sleep at all since this.. and when I read what really happened to him it sickened me and infurrated me. If you are in the least bit human do whats right and face up if not for the family at least to maybe try and save your soul on judgement day.

wow. how could anyone be okay with letting a teenagers body lie there on the side of a road when they knew it was there fault. are you completely heartless. how could you. this is the 2nd friend ive lost in the past 5 days and it sickens me. especially knowing that they were both killed by careless drivers. even a hitman couldnt be this coldhearted. so many people loved and cared about josh AND steve. why cant people just stay off the road if they know they dont pay enough attention to what theyre doing. i loved this kid. he had dreams. and you crushed his dreams before he was even out of high school. when i find out for sure, i will get my revenge, no matter what it takes, i promise you i WILL get my sweet revenge.

My sweet Joshua, your humor will be missed. I have so many memories with you to last me forever. GOD will get the people that did this to you, for we all must answer to HIM.

IF THE PERSON WHO DID THIS IS READING THIS, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS AND THERE STILL MAY BE SOME MERCY ON YOUR SOUL. IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO COME FORWARD. YOU DID NOT KNOW JOSH BUT LET ME TELL YOU THIS: he was a boy, he had a mom and dad and 2 brothers who will never be the same. They NEED answers and closure to help their unrelenting grief. YOU can help THEM. I will alway remember you Joshua and do something in your memory every holiday or family occasion to keep you in the room with us. I know that you are still with us in spirit. Love, your aunt and GODMOTHER, Ilene

Dear Joshua, we will miss your sweet smile and laughter. Whenever Danny wakeboards he will always remember that you were the one who taught him how. We laugh about the times we had with you and how it was always a pleasure to be around you. Trips to Summerville will never be the same without you. Your friends from Cleveland. God Bless You!!

Now that the Preliminary hearing has been waived, I hope that Judge Pezze gives Justice to Josh. I PRAY THAT EDWARD BRADLEY GETS THE SENTENCE THAT TRUELY FITS THE CRIME OF LEAVING MY JOSHUA LAYING THERE. I am concerned that if the sentence is to leaniant it will send a message to our youngsters that they would do better to run from an accident scene instead of being accountable and helping the injured. HOW SAD IT WOULD BE TO LEAVE A MESSAGE LIKE THAT!
Always remembering you AND PRAYING FOR JUSTICE,
love always, Aunt Ilene

Very tragic story, however, walking along an interstate at 3:00am certainly increases your chances that you may be hit by a fast moving vehicle...
