Don't grieve alone; 14,000 members and growing
My husband, Kevin, was hunting with his dad on 1-7-16 and his dad accidently shot Kevin, but being prideful and having dementia, he lied and the Sheriff closed case EVEN after coroner said no way he could of shot himself with the injuries and also a forensic specialist I hired for $4,000.00 agreed. Fred moved both guns and rabbit before Sheriff came.
Apparently this is no big deal for the Sheriff Department. Since I have been fighting 8 months for justice and getting no where. I have changed my goal to making awareness of guns and dementia. Do you know that 20 percent of gun owners are over 65 and 11 percent of them have dementia. Do you guys have any ideas, how I can start awareness, campaigns, or walks to help people understand this growing problem. I need to become productive in my grief as I will never get justice in this county. Ruthie

Has Kevin's dad actually been officially diagnosed with dementia? If so, or if you are able to legally make a medical and mental health exam/diagnosis occur, I would think you have a fair chance of at least having his guns removed from his home.
Fred has not been diagnosed yet, but the Sheriff did not return my calls. My daughter and I are seeing my lawyer tomorrow to see if we can file a wrongful death claim. I really do not want to as I am exhausted emotionally, but she wants to see Fred and the Sheriff to have some accountability with the new findings.
I understand being exhausted; maybe your daughter can handle most of it.
Lawyer said we can file a wrongful death claim--but I feel my husband would hate this--but my daughter needs accountability and closure. Ugh thanks for listening.
New Lawyer out of town--says he can file paperwork with Ohio Prosecutor and we definitely have enough for wrongful death. All I want is an I AM SORRY and Man up.
