First and foremost, to the family of cj I am so deeply sorry for your loss, I know no words can help. I've never met someone so loved by so many people, that was truly a good guy, and this just isn't fair. I would gladly trade spots with him if I could. To everyone reaching out to me, trying to help me, showing me support, I can't express what that means to me, I love you all. I'm sure it's starting to populate that I ran because I was terrified, I still am. I have already went to jail before and to be facing that again after trying so hard to do good, to stay out of trouble, to be a good person, I can't take it. Anyone and everyone that knows me knows how good my heart is and I just hope that will be taken into account as this is getting sorted out. By now many of you know I was not at fault for the accident, but that doesn't change what happened and that doesn't change that I ran when I shouldn't of. Worst mistake of my life, I panicked, I'm scared, I don't know what else to say. I plan on turning myself in shortly to get this all sorted out, I just was trying to talk to lawyers and my family to see my options. I'm sorry to keep you all waiting I know that isn't fair. None of this is fair to anyone, this is a tragedy and it's time like these that just make you wonder why. Remember to hug your loved ones, be thankful for who you have in your life, these lives we live are too short. To everyone supporting me please continue to do so, I'm going to need it more than ever once I'm back in jail. A letter means the world in there just to hear from people. But more importantly, anyone supporting me, go support cjs family because those are the true victims. Rest in paradise cj, you'll be forever loved and forever missed.
