It has now been confirmed that the investigation has been closed. Authorities have concluded that Miss Rhodes did not commit any traffic violations, nor was alcohol or drugs a factor the night she was lost control of her suv in a single-car accident at two a.m., killing Miss Buckner. Pokesallet, you are very wise. Most of the people in our town simply choose to "look over" accidents such as this. Pretty ignorant if you ask me. Courtney Rhodes did indeed come from a family with money. The road should not have been repaved. Miss Rhodes should not be out free right now, she should be in jail for vehicular homicide. Since you were the only person who commented, you were the only person with suspicions and concerns, you were the only one smart enough to demand answers, I will give them to you. Courtney Rhodes and Shipley Buckner had consumed quite a lot of alcohol that night. Courtney lost control of her car because she was too intoxicated to drive. After she lost control, she climbed onto the back of one of the firefighter's at the scene and announced she and her friend "shippy" were drunk. She was laughing. Shipley died moments later. Courtney was taken to the hospital with minor injuries and they ran a tox screen just like they do in most single car accidents at two o'clock in the morning. What you will not find in the articles are the results of the tox screen. She was wasted. She had good money and an even better attorney with several "family connections." She murdered her best friend. Anyone else would get a life sentence for this crime. The power of money sure is a big one. I do not know Courtney nor did I know Shipley. I was just curious about this as well, and I have "connections" myself. I even spoke with the woman who took Courtney's blood the night of the wreck. Money saved her. For the police officers, district attorneys, and all involved who know the "real version" may your conscious forever haunt you. May it eat at you, every single day of your life until you are rotting in hell for all of eternity. Sick bastards.
