    Well, whoever did this – here’s your defense, in plain English right on the news. “Investigators think that the driver was not aware that he or she had hit someone.” There’s your out. Turn yourself in and say that, especially if it was a box trailer. You’ll get off Scot free!

      I meant, have your ATTORNEY say that for you. Don’t turn yourself in without legal counsel with you.

    In defense of the Sleeman family, this person needs to be caught for justice for Charlie. He does NOT need an “OUT” for this. The Sleeman friends and family will go on missing and loving Charlie either way they will be without one less son, father, and friend. Charlie deserves justice and its up to the investigators to decide what happens here. We are amazed at some of these comments on these websites about Charlie’s death. Some of them are sympathetic and others are plain down right out cold and use Charlie’s death as a butt of a joke when they didnt even know him. Playing it off as the suspect needing an “out” is not needed. Either way, Charlie is gone in body but not in heart and justice should be served!
