This saddens me deeply as I didn't know that this happened until a day before yesterday from a mutual friend on FB. I knew Chad since we both were
in Running Start together. He was the class clown and was always funny. Later on because of back issues he got addicted to pain pills. Eventually it
reached the point where paying over 500 dollars a day wasn't working anymore for him. As I headed off for college he slid into a much deeper opiate
addiction. I know I can't name ones but I'm pretty sure the you all know the kind he was addicted too. I blame the doctors for putting him on that in
the first place. After my first year of college I met back with up with him. This is when SWIM was told about what he was doing. SWIM doesn't know if
he got charged only for the pharmacy robberies he was caught for but SWIM knows he committed over a dozen. He was the getaway driver and somebody else
waited in line with a note by the RX pick ups and when he got to the front of the line he showed them the note and just showed the pharm tech just a
seconds glance of the pistol.
Eventually he and his accomplis got caught. I visited them both while they were on bail. Chad was offered a sweet deal where all he had to do was
go to rehab for a year and he would only serve 3 in prison. He escaped after the first day of rehab.
THIS IS WHERE I THINK HE GOT THE IDEA FOR THE CRIME HE'S CHARGED WITH NOW. DELETE. It was Chad. He told me he escaped rehab because of WD's and people
were making fun of him. He told me he pretended like he needed help on the side of a road. When an old woman stopped to help him he pulled a knife on
her and said "Please don't make me use this" and stole her car.
DELETE let me take him back to rehab. When I took him back the pastor said he wouldn't accept him back into the program. When I told him EVERYTHING
that I went through to get him to come back the pastor said "These are the rules". Anyways I ended up dropping him off at his sisters and later on the
bounty hunters came for him.
The last time I saw him we had plexiglass between us at KJRC.
I heard that when he got back he just went silent and didn't talk to any of his old friends. Now I know he got rechared with a burglary charge.
My thoughts and feelings as to why he killed his grandparents were because they were trying to stop him from stealing the car because he wanted to get
out and get drugs. He was one of the nicest, funniest, guys I know. Now he may be getting the death sentence. I used to go to bonfires with this kid.
And highschool parties...
