My daughter Vanessa 19, was out for on the water on July 25, 2016 just relaxing with her boyfriend crabbing when a drugged/distracted person on a boat come along speeding and ran into her. She had internal injuries, I did get to speak to her at hospital before surgery but she didn’t make it doing surgery.
I miss her so much and want her home so desperately, I have other children, I try and be strong for but some days I don’t know how I breathe. The law should be the same as if in a car. He was arrested but out the next day. His charge is manslaughter but what hurts a lot is he is out doing what he wants until trial. Which could take a very long time. I pray that he is sentenced to the maximum of the law. It won’t bring her back but he can’t hurt someone.
