    Hello my names rylie Carver, Stephen is my father i wish all the newa reporters knew more about what happened to this story besides gregg got murdered. Like what started the fight? did they have a good relationship before ?
    Gregg is my uncle but i wish i could say differently. He took all my fathers money he verbally and physically abused my dad tormented him terribly. i had calls from him daily for two months hearing him crying wanting to move back to Idaho. But gregg had no one his own son dis owned him. My father was the only one there for him he had so many medical issues so he needed someone there for him and my dad was that person. So one day my dad couldnt take it and defended him self fought back. Not saying it was the right move but my father has so many emotional problems and bipolar so he honestly needs mental help like couceling not prison for the rest of his life. My father is my everything and havnt seen him in almost two years and i just prey that no matter what im here and will defend him every step of the way.
