Wow, it is so hard to lose a parent but I can't imagine how difficult these circumstances make it. I'm sorry that you are being robbed of justice. I pray that you & your family find closure in some other form.
My heart goes out to you.

Kevin - It's bad enough to lose your Dad (I know that from personal experience), but it has to be worse to have the person that killed him set free and not have to pay for what he did. I will keep you and your mom in my prayers. Penny

I recommend a wrongful death civil suit....they won't go to jail but they may wish they did. there's also much less of a burden of proof than a criminal trial

Sorry Kevin. The loss of parent even when we are adults sucks . It compounds the grief and frustration when the law drops the ball.

I never knew the entire circumstances regarding your father's passing. I too lost my father in 2009 at the age of 69 [after losing my mother in 2007 at age 65]. Then in October of 2009 my brother, my only sibling, committed suicide . While I have experienced much tragedy, I still cannot imagine my loved one being killed in this manner and the driver not being held at least partially responsible.

The article is from July 1985 and states Eagan was 59 years old and has been state attorney for 16 years. This is 2010 and he is still Asst. States Attorney! They should have a term limit - this Eagan guy is 84 years old? He should not still be in that position and he is corrupt - it's nuts!

Kevin I am so sorry that this has happened. The man should be charged and definitely should not have a driver's license! I will write and complain too. I hope someone listens to our complaints.
