I've heard that new and shocking information has come to light about the sudden death of Chad Peterson. I'm extremely disgusted to know that others were responsible for his untimely death. (Autopsy results showed otherwise.) I grew up in Brigham City and this (in my opinion) is by far the most horrific event that has taken place in this so-called quiet, religious town. I want all of Chad's family to know that they are in my prayers daily because I can't fathom they must feel right now - knowing that their loved one was taken from them and the murderous act was covered to look like a suicide. From what I've heard about Chad's behavior in the past he was a very respectful and loving person despite the battle he was waging with his inner demons. I know that in time, the truth will come out and those that were involved in this utterly horrific and evil act will be prosecuted to the full extent.

As a former inmate of b e c s o I am having a real hard time believing that someone could hang themself. The layout of the cells leaves nowhere that someone could hang from. The walkthroughs that take place after lights out,( I know for a fact,) take place at times spaced far enough apart that the time to sufforcate is possible but the question returns to WHAT was he hanging from?? I do believe that something fishy is going on at the jail here in humble, mormon orientated Brigham City. I think that Sheriff Yeates himself, along with Commander Bull need to absolutely investigate this further. Knowing quite a few inmates that are still currently in box elder jail I will be curious to talk to a few of them. The light will shine on the foul goings on when the time is right.

I have spent some time in that little podunk place they call a jail. Its not that bad of a building but i will tell you what the big problem is. The BIG HEADED POWER TRIPPEN COPS That think they are above the law. AND THEY THINK THEY ARE ROBOCOP!!!!! Most of the people in Box Elder County are small timers. They have not murdered ,raped, shot, or hurt any one but themselves. VICTIMLESS CRIMES. i Do not think any one has it that bad, that they would want to kill themselves in that shit hole. i THINK THE COPS GET A BIG EGO TRIP WHEN THEY SEE AN OPPERTUNITY TO BEAT SOMEONE SENSLESS OR EVEAN GO AS FAR AS KILLING SOMEONE.
The people responsible for the crime that has been commited deserve to be punished to the max! They are The one's that are supposed to keep the peace.
Not abuse the power they are givin. NOTHING WORSE THAN DIRTY COPS THEY ARE THE MOST DANGEROUS PEOPLE ON THE STREET AND IN THE JAIL.

I was a friend of chad's, and I still can't beleive what happened, it makes me sick, and to my knowledge nothing has happened to those involved is horrible. But here is a little message to those involved, you know who you are and what you did, and even though you may not be punished here on earth, you will receive your's in the next life. And to chad's family I am truly sorry gor your loss, the world has lost an amazing person. R.I.P CHAD

All I can say is the world will miss Chad! Keep your prayers going for his family, they need them. That family has been rocked in the last 2 years! Pray for the whole family to have some good spirits in the future.

CHAD PETERSEN...U are NOT FORGOTTEN. BOX ELDER CORRUPT FUCKING COUNTY! my family member was also in jail at the time of Chad's MURDER!!! NOT SUICIDE!!! I have done a substantial amount of time in Bull Shit Box Elder County & all the people on this site are 100% correct about the CORRUPT JAILERS, POWER-TRIPPIN, PIECE OF SHIT PO-PO'S, treating inmates like were not human beings and like OUR LIVES DONT MATTER! THEY TREATED CHAD PETERSEN'S LIFE AS IF HE DIDN'T MATTER!It's as if them thinking they got away with murder has somehow sickly empowered the officers & they think they can play GOD! I was recently there after not having been there for 4 yrs & i am at a loss for words almost as to how they treat people! "SATAN'S PLAYGROUND!" & YES, LUCIFER HIMSELF IS STILL THERE....OFFICER SCOTT YOUNG!!! He is so full of Hate, discontent, & I saw 1st hand! HE MAKES ME FUCKIN ILL!! This last go-round in that piece of shit hell-hole has sent me over the edge....ONCE AND FOR ALL!! BOX ELDER COUNTY SHERIFF'S, STRIKE FORCE, CHIEF OF POLICE, TREMONTON POLICE DEPT, DETECTIVE ROSE (lover of child pornography), DEPUTY WOMAK (lover of molesting women & making them strip in front of him...in prison now for a whole fucking sum of 16 lousy months!!), are u fucking kidding me?!! ADDICTS GO DOWN TO THE JOINT LONGER THAN THAT FOR VICTIMLESS CRIMES! DETECTIVE SALVESEN ( Having himself sum "confidential sex time, with sum "confidential informants"...Ha! Not so "CONFIDENTIAL THO IS IT DEPUTY SALVESEN!!?(Notice it doesn't say "Detective" next to his name anymore.. but of course, still on the force!! Detective Jeremy Rose....wow! U make me wanna fucking vomit in ur God damn face! I would love too, along with a million others....so many that u could possibly drown in all the vomit on ur disgusting face! As many people as u took down & supposedly "got criminals off the street.." u shoulda walked ur pear-looking ass in that jail FIRST AND FOREMOST! Cuz it's true...NOTHING WORSE OR MORE DANGEROUS THAN CORRUPT COPS! THE DAMN JUDGES ALWAYS SIDE WITH "THEY'RE OWN!!" As for all the agencies, individuals, and Police Departments I mentioned up top...EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM ARE CORRUPT & PLAYING GOD! Im scared for my own future right now being i may be put back in there very soon! To the people of Box Elder County, STAND UP FOR ONCE! HAVE A VOICE! IF U KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT CHAD PETERSEN'S CASE... BRING IT FORWARD PLEASE! JUST THINK, HE COULDA BEEN YOUR CHILD, NEPHEW, FATHER, BROTHER, UNCLE, & I BELIEVE HE WAS ALL THEM THINGS! HOW DARE THEM GET AWAY WITH MURDER ALL THIS TIME! HOW MANY MORE ARE THERE GONNA BE? I have let that county run me down time & time again, & rolled over & plead guilty to BULL SHIT, while they spend their time HARRASSING good people that have addiction problems instead of REAL CRIMINALS! Now I see Y... They dont wanna turn to their partner or chief, or commander, or OIC, or their friend on the force with them & slam the cuffs on them even tho it is the right thing to do! If Box Elder County were to be COMPLETELY WIPED OUT, strike force (Agent Ryan Hill, Agent Bowcutt, Agent Thompson, Chief nance...ETC..the world would be such a SAFER, BETTER, NOT STAGED, LESS DRAMA & FAKE ASS ACCUSATIONS & CHARGES, LESS HARRASSMENT, & man hours wasted, & tax $'S wasted for these PARASITES & LEACHES TO BUST SOMEONE WITH A DIME BAG OF MARIJUWANA! Im at my wits end with Box Elder & im reaching out for support, for Chad Petersen, for JUSTICE against his Killers, for the inmates in there now & future inmates to be cuz officer Young has only been shown he can "Play God" behind those walls, & who knows just how much further he may go!!!! I would really love sum feedback on this & ANYONE who feels similar to me & how the cops treat the people of Box Elder County lets PLEASE get in touch & hold hands all together and take a stand before someone else dies and/or "Commits Suicide."

I really would like to take these Credible serious issues to the news! Fox 13 i'm sure would LOVE to do a story on this killing in Box Elder...Chad Petersen's Case! This is for his Mother & Family...My family's prayers go out to u & yours... I'm so sorry! For sum reason my mom has been compelled to speak to u. We as a family went thru something similar as u have & are...We believe we...us all together to tell our stories about our loved ones dying either because the police did it...or because they didn't show up when 911 was called because "they were busy!" Pls Pls DO NOT LET THIS GO! Don't let them win! Box Elder has gotten away with WAY TOO MUCH, & our family is all but ruined because of them! We beg u to pls help us & help us help u.... may our loved ones rest in peace & the ones responsible be brought to justice before more lives are taken & more families ruined!
