Rae Carruth Chancellor Carruth

Chancellor Lee Adams, the boy Carolina Panthers star Rae Carruth tried to kill, turns 18 today. Chancellor suffered a brain injury and cerebral palsy due to lack of oxygen when his mother, Cherica Adams, was shot multiple times in November 1999.

Chancellor was born 10 weeks prematurely via c-section as doctors fought to save his mother's life.

Cherica, a beautiful 24-year-old real estate agent, died because Carruth, who already had a son in California, didn't want to pay child support.

Carruth, who has never seen his youngest son, will be released from prison next year after serving a 18 year sentence.

Chancellor was raised by Cherica's mother, Saundra Adams, who says she has forgiven Carruth and his three accomplices for her daughter's murder.

William Watkins, the triggerman who was paid to kill Cherica and her unborn baby, is serving a life sentence in prison.

His accomplices -- Michael Kennedy and Stanley Abraham -- have since been released from prison.

Saundra plans to take Chancellor to the prison to see his father when he is released in 2018.

“Rae is not remorseful," she tells the Charlotte Observer. "He has not asked for forgiveness. He still contends that he was never at that scene. And that’s on him. He’ll have to answer for that."

She added: "I don’t expect that he will ever acknowledge his part in my daughter’s death."

Saundra says she doesn't expect Carruth to confess, "I simply want him to see his son and see what a fine young man he has grown into. And that he is not just surviving, but that he is indeed thriving."

    DAMN.
    RIP Cherica. This sh*# was so unnecessary, and the fact that he still won't be a man about it and own his part in it, smh. Carruth is garbage for this. Damn.

  • Karen Brady

    I just read about this a few weeks ago. This sweet young man is incredible and strong and God's got him. His maternal grandmother is an angel. Rae Curruth? He's scum of the earth and a coward to boot. I am so glad though that Cherica identified him. BASTARD. Ya'll have a good evening!

  • pecancandy

    Handsome young man

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    This story always breaks my heart. I support the grandmother taking this young man and letting the man, who attempted to stop him from coming into this world and orchestrating his mother's death, lay eyes on him. "LOOK WHAT YOU COULD NOT PUT ASUNDER" "LOOK AT GOD"

    I think Carruth will be getting out the pokey sometime in the near future. He should've gotten life WITHOUT the possibility of parole.
    The boy looks like he's well taken care of and happy.

  • klwbaby

    Rae doesn't deserve to breathe the same air as Chancellor. Rae is a sperm donor not a father.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    exactly, STILL, won't admit to it. PUT karma is a patient, cunning, JUST and fair bitch.

  • Ebony Starr

    She did a great job raising that young man. Cherica would be proud. God Bless them both!!

  • TheOwley

    He's getting released pretty soon and is probably angry. I hope the grandmother has sought protection for Chancellor and herself. This story has not ended.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Good night Roses!

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    I think he should have to serve just as long as Watkins (who definitely should be locked up for life because he was so flippant about murdering a pregnant woman, he actually scared me through the tv!)

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    ME TOO NANCY!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    But Cherica had to have her bad boy and try to force him to man up and take responsibility for his son.
    It's a shame how things worked out.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    “Rae is not remorseful,” That's all I need to NOT forgive him. She's better than me.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    There's a "BUT" for the victim?

    But Cherica had to have her bad boy and try to force him to man up and take responsibility for his son.

    It's a shame how things worked out.

    So many different people could have made so many different choices.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I watched this episode on one of those murder drama stations. They lured that poor girl to her death. Had her thinking he was cool with it just sad...

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    And bet he'll still find someone to date him after he comes out.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    From what I read Cherica was well-liked and successful in real estate.

    She knew Rae's reputation before he got involved with him and became pregnant but she tried to change someone who didn't want to change and unfortunately it costs her, her life and almost costs the life of her son.

  • klwbaby

    He probably had some desperate girls writing him and telling him he has a place to stay when he gets out.

  • justlooking

    You been here before huh? Night babes

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Have you seriously thought about who is going to care for Chancellor after the grandmother can't or transitions?

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Disgusting.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Who? It surely won't be his father. He doesn't give two shats about him. He'll probably be in a home somewhere.

    Ok, I'm gone ya'll. Good night.

  • MsPam

    Rae and his whole family ain’t sh:t, nobody on his side of his family has ever had anything to do with this young man. Rae’s mama raised a bish.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    this gave me chills. but, sadly, you speak truth. I can recall some years ago a former Motown exec put a hit on his quadriplegic son and the boys mother (even the child's nurse was killed), smh.

  • justlooking

    Hey Devils Advocate - You tickle me, so what was she to do? She was trying to keep a piece of her daughter, something only a mother would understand.

  • justlooking

    Damn...these folks are RUTHLESS

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Hey shug! Where you been all day? Ya'll keep me in here when I'm trying to leave. Good night for the 3rd time...lol

  • shun king

    i bet if that child was not disabled the grandmother would not let him any where near his dad

    October 2018. Why do they let criminal out in my birth month? First O.J. in October 2017 next year Rae?! Damn!Damn! in my Florida Evans voice!

  • RICHIE_RICH

    I wonder what’s drives people to kill? Y’all be safe in these streets

  • justlooking

    I have nothing for this post. Me and some Roses got in heated discussion about a year ago....I don't remember but I know Beloved Rose came through. Chile we be getting it poppn in here.

    God Bless Chancellor and His beautiful grandmother.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    yeah, I can agree she made a poor choice, but she didn't deserve to die for it. HE could have handled this differently.

    girl it was back in the 90's I think.... right there in silver spring!

  • TheOwley

    I remember that case well. Can't recollect the name. I think a movie was made about it. The killer killed by shooting in the eyes. Rae will see that boy as an extension of his mother, the woman he believes unjustly threaten his money, took away his career, put him in prison, took away half his life, and this child is a reminder. Somebody needs to talk sense to Ms. Adams.

  • bemetoo

    This story just kills me...i freaking despised Rae and his coward friends that murder the boys mother all because of money..nigga stop are dogging ole pawssie ass bitcch

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    well Rae is no longer rolling in dough (and I believe he's still too bish made to attempt anything on his own)

  • klwbaby

    Hate, love, money, and some do it just to see what it feels like to kill someone.

  • justlooking

    Iono bout all that, I consider myself to be resilient. Hmph

    It's all good, we mad up months later. (I think)

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    She could have left the no good nicca along at any time but she tried to force Rae to grow up and take responsibility which he didn't want to do.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    No just not into the look at God stuff sorry.

  • NeverSurprised

    If only Carruth had been required to serve his time in a prison in Communist China. Now THAT would have been justice.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    well she was expecting HIS child. she had every right to seek the best situation for herself and her child, and if to her that meant Rae taking responsibility, why is that wrong?

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    what was the conflict though???? was it victim blaming?

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    he would have been in there talking 'bout... i wanna see my son! ol' bish! LOL!

  • Tony

    Carruth, “C” as in coward. Smh

  • Noirluv45

    What gets me is not only that Rae is the lowest form of cockroach there is, but there are people out there willing to take a person's life for ?. I felt so bad for Cherica and I'm happy her son survived.

  • bhavana

    He's probably better off without knowing that side of his family.

  • GuestSTAR

    And to hear her suffering, trying to talk to the 911 operator was so sad.

  • Anunnaki

    Cold blooded murders like this should never see light ....how can these guys . murder a woman rgthats so bish made...ughh

  • bhavana

    It would be very difficult for me to forgive him too, but carrying around anger and hatred for 18 years is not good for the body either. The good Lord would have to help me overcome my bitterness.

  • You Could Never

    Chancellor is our statewide baby. They run his birthday every year. Charlotte Observer does. Just this year more prominent article bc he is 18.

    Sadly Rae HAS met his son. Once. When he was one. Ms. Saundra took him up there. Piece of shit Rae is.

    Happy birthday to that baby boy. We will forever love him

  • MsPam

    It’s personal for me because I live in the same town as his mother, their concern is when Rae coming home?!

  • Anunnaki

    I dont even remember...lol

  • Bea

    Think that’s very unfair and not well thought out by you. What does his disability have to do with her decision to allow his murderous dad to finally meet his motherless son that he caused and was directely responsible for his son’s lifelong condition? He orchestrated the death of her only child yet she forgave him. He’s yet to take responsibility for his actions. In spite of him, his son survived and he should be reminded of that everyday of his life the same way his son has to live daily without his mother.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    SOME NASTY tail woman prolly waiting to lay up with him

  • shinyblackfiamond

    Wow, time flies. It's so sad that this young man has to live like this because someone wanted to be so evil.

  • justlooking

    Oh you was there...smacks ya booty.

  • SweetTEE

    If thats the case, Im sure that family is HATED in your area.

  • SweetTEE

    Had me in tears...

  • justlooking

    Girl, I can't put it into words, but it was like she tricked him kind of night. Whang spit on the floor and it was on like popcorn. I guess that was her thing...to e spit. I gotta reach out to her, haven't spoken to her in a minute. I completely tickled thinking about it...Then don't talk to strangers came in here spitting. Then Dubb was like I'm leaving.

    Pours out some Courvoisier on behalf of Whang.

  • NicoleZee

    I remember when that happened and when Law & Order did an episode about a similar case. So very sad. She needs to keep her grandson away from his POS father. He's a killer. You're still a killer if you hire someone to do the killing. That young lady lost her life over nonsense and never got to raise her child or finish her own life. So much evil in this world it's sickening. Sad.

  • justlooking

    NC sticks with our folks through think and thin.

    BTW what happened to the little crazy girl that won the lottery. I saw her on Fix my life and SWOOSH she was gone.

  • 100milesperhour

    The news reported the grandmother's family has agreed to assume his care if & when that happens.

  • SexyScorpio

    I was thinking the same thing. She wants him to see what he has done to his child. She wants him to lol in that young mans face and see what he tried to kill lived, but is living a disabled life by his own Fathers hand. I ain’t mad at her because I think she really does forgive him as well.

  • SweetTEE

    Exactly. He didnt care for his own son when he murdered his mom.. and still doesnt have a heart. I would be very afraid for that boy.

  • NicoleZee

    She's dumb and elderly. No way in hell would I let my child near a sick killer, period, father or not. She needs to move on with her life and erase killer Rae from her memory. Her daughter and grandson did not deserve what happened to them. Everyone involved in the murder should have receive the death penalty.

  • shun king

    from my experience women who have healthy kids and dislike the dad will keep them away from him but when the child is disabled/handicapped they sure will almost force the dad to keep him..i know she have her hands full with his son and i am pretty sure she need some help and maybe to make him feel shame in the process its very logical

  • NicoleZee

    We all have family like that. They either want nothing to do with you or they pretend to care every few years or so. It's best to cut people like that out of your life. Children don't deserve fairweather friends or family. Either you're a decent person who wants to be in someone's life or you don't. But don't be phony and pretend to care, if that's the case, then never come around.

  • SG

    I’m not understanding why she is taking him to see his father??? She admitted he wasn’t remorseful. I don’t think seeing the boy will make a difference.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    So lemme get this straight. The triggerman is serving a life sentence... but the person who paid the triggerman gets to walk after 18 years? smh

  • SG

    Smh

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    So the father preferred to serve 18 years in jail versus comply with his parental obligations for 18 years?

    He should serve 18 more years or be required to pay back child support that’s due. That shouldn’t be dismissed simply because the boy is 18.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. Just let him walk into a club right after getting out of prison. Hoochies will be lining up to "put it on him" . smh

  • Wreckognize Game

    Move on lady. This young man doesn't need to meet this dude. Sometimes ppl do too much. He's a killer and wanted Chancellor dead.

  • justlooking

    yeap

  • i troll it like i see it

    Why does she need any validation from him? I'd keep the child far away from that demon.

  • SG

    Can’t change a grown man or people for that matter. They change when they want to. This is a hard lesson that I had to learn as a woman and that many women struggle with.Once I stopped dating men for their “potential” and look at (and accept) him for what he is now I ain’t tried to change a man or anyone else since.

  • hotntot95

    Um ...he only got 18 years for plotting to kill his pregnant girlfriend, killing her and handicapping his son?? SMH..

  • dontgetblocked

    He should never get out of jail and I certainly would not expose that young to that devil. Forgive but don't go near that mofo again!

  • You Could Never

    Tell BOTH of them I said olive juice lmaooo

  • shun king

    exactly and if that boy was healthy it would be all kind of restraining orders one Rae curruth they would have made him sign some before he gets out`

  • Guest©

    Typical hood mentality. Being an adult means one must take responsibility for ones actions. His entire family sounds like enablers.

    I remember watching this story on city confidential. He should’ve got life the clown. Got bless Chancellor and Saundra.

  • You Could Never

    Ole Theodry. Bitch was in court every single day. She the one turned his ass in. I never liked her. It was always my boy this. My sweet baby Rae. The news media ate her ALIVE here the way they portrayed her. They hated her. The Rae Carruth trial was on here in NC like the OJ Simpson trial was nationally. It was a big ass deal.

  • shun king

    she want him to see the damage he has done

    All he had to do was pay child support.

    Exactly.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Exactly!!

  • You Could Never

    Here in NC... if you are in prison the child support system deems the dad was UNABLE to pay during that time and the monies are erased. My jackass ex husband went for embezzlement and then when released went right on down there and had the monies that accumulated during his incarceration AND his house arrest erased. I was so pist. still am

  • shun king

    Rae c mother is part of the blame too i followed this case she seem to be over bearing on him and telling him she didnt want anymore babys he was a paid momas boy

  • You Could Never

    There was almost a damn riot the day he was sentenced that bullshit. I will never forget it. My cousin lived in Charlotte at the time and was legit scared.

  • You Could Never

    Correct. Saundra has a sister and a niece (the auntie and first cousin of Cherica) who are very involved in his care already and have always been.

  • MsPam

    They keep a pretty low profile unless you knew them before he had the poor girl killed. When I see Rae’s mama I look her up/down and give her the stank face.

  • MsPam

    To get to Rae you had to get past his mama! THAT WAS THE RULE EVEN WHEN HE WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL!

  • Kimberly King

    If he hasn't asked for forgiveness in 18 years, and hasn't acknowledged his role in the woman's death, why go and take the child to see him? Rae should have friggin got LIFE without parole like that other idiot who pulled the trigger. Men are ANIMALS! They don't want to use condoms or pull out. So accept the responsibility! If I were the grandma, I wouldn't dare bring my grandson around that bum. F*ck him!

  • MsPam

    I remember, in this town, you couldn’t go anywhere without hearing about it. Black folks were wearing his jersey!

  • NicoleZee

    What??? I didn't understand your post. Who didn't want anymore babies??? I think both grandmothers are way past the age of deciding on having children or not!!! I think you meant Rae. He didn't want to pay child support, so he didn't want anymore kids. He's a sick POS. These stupid ass men need to get vasectomies and they wouldn't have to worry about child support, period! Why is that so hard??? I was talking to my mom about the issue and I think we both agreed that men and women seem to be scared of sterilization. My mom was done after 2 kids and got herself fixed. I just don't get why people won't get the damn surgeries, that way they won't be so evil and angry when they produce kids they don't want. Geeesh!

  • Marlika

    She’s stupid for considering taking that young man up there. If he hasn’t acknowledge or help that young man in 18 year he never will.

  • shun king

    when the case was going on alot of things where brought up about his mom telling him she didn't want anymore babies in the family always on him about it and was very upset when she found out he had Cherica pregnant ..they portrayed his mom as one of the reasons he did what he did

    This has always and will continue to be a heartbreaking story to me. Bless the grandmother for her love but I wouldn't take my grandbaby to see that muderer. This man was cruel and heartless and set up her daughter's murder while pregnant. Doubt if seeing his son, especially with physical disabilities makes him all of a sudden have a change of heart and feel any remorse for his actions.

  • SG

    But he doesn’t seem to care. I’m sure he has seen the boy on television or in the newspaper over the last 18 years. This soulless demon still claims that he had nothing to do with it.

  • shun king

    interviews he say he cant wait to be a part of his sons life

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I understand her logic but fvck the father. He tried to kïll his own son so I wouldnt try to reunite them. Fvck the father. May he dïe slow.

  • SG

    Really?? I hope that’s true. That raises more questions though ... I read that his family has had no interaction with his son. If he’s so anxious to be a part of his life, why haven’t they tried to establish a relationship in the last 18 years? If I was a away for whatever reason my parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts/uncles would have been clamoring to be a part of my child’s life. Idk. Everybody’s family ain’t the same and everyone wasn’t raised like me

  • i troll it like i see it

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Ok! Scott Peterson even got him somebody

  • Maxey Ross

    I watch the entire trial on tv. Rae showed no emotion. The shooter testimony was the strongest along with Cherica 911 call sayin Carreuth stopped his car as she followed him to give the shooter a good aim at her belly.

  • NicoleZee

    Oh, got you! His mom is dumb, real dumb. If she was any kind of mother, she would have encouraged him to stop sleeping around and protect himself or get sterilized. You can't force a grown person to do anything, but she could have just told him to not have anymore kids he didn't want, but don't commit a crime as a result, just QUIT MAKING BABIES TO BEGIN WITH! It was up to HIM to control himself and he didn't. Men like Rae are just sick and evil. My brother got a vasectomy in his 20s after his first and only child. My mom was not happy, but now she understands why he did it because he was certain he did not want anymore kids. Smart choice if you ask me, even if the person is really young with only one child. I think more doctors should recommend sterilization because most of these idiots don't even want kids or they don't want the ones they have, so why put yourself in that position and then you end up with 10 kids by 10 fools??? Sad.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Yet cherica's death didnt convince women to stop getting pregnant before marriage or men to wrap it up. Smh

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    True. And it's still happening today smh

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    He still wont! 18 years and he's not admitted to anything! Smh

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    You're not hearing him because you're too busy being defensive. He's not saying that she's wrong for seeking child support, he's saying that the writing was on the wall that rae would never take responsibility, he was a player from the beginning, her mistake was engaging him in the first place. Kinda like ciara with future minus the murder element

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Exactly. People still want to play the victim even when they make bad choices.

    First time I've heard of this. Such a travesty. No wonder ESPN is going down the turd crapper.

    No. The University of Colorado built her and Lee a house and gives the family money every year. Lee is set up for life.

  • Julia Lyons

    She was awarded $3M in a wrongful death lawsuit. She collected some of it from his pension.

  • TheOwley

    Good question. The compensation would have come from the balance in his contract. The grandmother would have had to sue for it. Maybe they give charity not published.

    Kind of karmic. He didn't want to pay child support for 18 years so he's spent the last 18 sitting in a prison cell.

    because it was pure evil

    I said the same thing. Maybe Chancellor keeps asking her to meet him. But I say that if he’s been fine all this time, why bother? This man tried to kill him. It would be a h*ll naw from me.

    We have many statewide babies. Brittany Locklear. Walking to her bus stop. Snatched while outside for 5 minutes alone. Her mom ran back in for something. Found stuffed in drainage ditch. Her mom thought the bus had come. Didn't find out til she didn't get off bus that day...that she never got on.

    Shaniya Davis. Mom traded her for a drug debt.

    So many. Newsroom keeps a board of them. Chancellor one of few who made it. Now I'm misty eyed...GN

  • R in NYC

    Although Cherica had a reputation as a groupie she didn't deserve what happened to her. Just too bad she trusted the wrong man and tried to make a family with a man who clearly just wanted to be a player on and off the field. Cherica's mother is a very forgiving soul but she shouldn't set her grandson up for more rejection from his father. Rae has shown no indication he pans on including his son in his life after he is released.
    Nothing wrong with forgiveness but never forget what the bastard did to you in the first place.

  • shun king

    why when i talk to black people every day and see one in the mirror ..i have a problem with crime ignorance and illogical behavior thats all. born and raised right off Gresham road and USED to have a mouth full of gold teeth so i know what the hood mentality is all about...

    I'm not sure why people keep mentioning birth control in the comments. I wish I would inject that poison in my body just so a ninja can raw dawg me across the room all night. N-O. Never been on birth control before, never been pregnant, and I'm not going to start now. STDs, HIV/AIDS, and babies are all real. I wish more men would wrap it up, and I wish more women would enforce this. I've had orgasms from a penis with a rubber on it plenty of times lol so I don't want to hear anything about it taking the feeling away.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    This was over before it started, I mean, his moniker was "Punk." He's probably feeling like having her as his beard isn't worth it any longer and his star could be so much brighter if he got with Tyson Beckford, Frank Ocean, or Madear.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yep. Rae doesnt want anything to do with that kid. It's just a reminder of a foiled plot that still produced the kid he didn't want. HE WANTED THE MOM AND KID DEAD. He'd never see this kid if it were up to me.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Did you know there were sea creatures living inside of Lacy's dead body as it sat under water all that time? It was so disturbuing to hear that in one of the news reports I saw.

  • wiseone

    I remember when this happened. She survived long enough to call 911 and tell them exactly what happened and that was poetic justice. I don't understand why the grandmother said she forgives Rae and his accomplices because that was a calculated cold blooded act and the fact that he is soon to be released really upsets me.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    AMd he ain’t sorry that’s why he didn’t want to see that child!!! When a man tell you to get rid of HIS child believe him!!! He supppsedly gave her abortion money and everything thing! I would have took them coins and left town!! Had my child he would not have heard from me but somewhere down the road he would have known me and that child didn’t need shat from him his see through as

  • Love Lisa

    I truly wish this woman would come to her senses and realize that man does not want to see his seed. He doesn’t consider him anything to him. Why hurt the child more, she has been waiting for that monster to acknowledge that child for 18 years. Stop it already. Why are they letting that trash out anyway.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Nasty, like "protective order" nasty... and like "custody battle" nasty.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Yea he didn’t want that child from the day his mother told Rae she was pregnant!! And the fact that this child would have had a normal life had Rae not tried to kill him is something else!! He even looks like Rae this was a sad story. I would have left town and had my child in peace !

  • free

    why do folk say "i forgave" outta their mouths when it ain't in their hearts? if ray ain't called in all this time, he ain't interested.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Awww man, I liked how they stayed out the news

  • Michelle

    Where is this young mans quality of life,he left behind a constant obligation... the disabled are a lot KFC work and the caregiver usually suffers. Sad

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I was watching a documentary on this last month. Chancellor's grandmother needs to get on and not worry about that monster's acknowledgment of his son. What if seeing his father upsets him or Rae just walks past him like he doesn't know him when he gets out? I wouldn't take that risk at all. God bless that young man and he looks just like Rae smh...

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    PREACH they dont hear you tho!! These men out here like it raw and it gets worse with age. The look on a man's face in his mid-thirties and older when you ask them "where's the condom" is priceless...

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Ray must've been in PC all this time. No word on him getting the Jeffrey Dahmer treatment aka prison justice in 18 yrs? Maybe, there'll be street justice for Chancellor. I still don't understand how Ray only got 18 yrs.

  • darealwifey

    Bless his heart. I pray God blesses him with the resources to live a comfortable life.

  • 2gr8ful

    I remember this story back then, he was so heartless. So glad that this young man is still pushing on. God bless her mom for all she did.

  • Jessica

    If you don't want a child, wear a condom please. It's soooooo much cheaper than child support.

  • cherrypie

    Yeah I remember this. I was nine months pregnant with my own son who now will be turning 18 yrs old tomorrow. Such a sad story. If this man truly has showed no remorse and has not asked for forgiveness then he will indeed have to answer to God. That he will NOT be able to get away with. That poor woman had her life stolen from her and her son has to live with some many medical issues without either one of his parents. There is a special place in hell waiting for Carruth. Trust.

  • 5000BlinK

    Yes, I remember this.. I had just had a son 2 months earlier. It was so awful.

  • Reina1718

    Man my son wouldnt be seeing no one!

  • hottlanta

    He is gonna say she was working while I was at home taking care of the child. He is gonna say I couldn't pursue my career as a lawyer because of her. We women want equal rights so now we have it.

  • Shaun M

    I remember that... he was through with him.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yeah, it's bad between those two.
    According to TMZ: "Hudson went to court Thursday without telling Otunga and got an order of protection, claiming he is a risk to both her and their 8-year-old son, David Jr.
    The police came, allowed Otunga to pack a bag and ordered him out."

    It's starting off ugly, and is probably gonna get uglier .

    Exactly, I mean forgiveness is key but she stated that he isn't remorseful so why even waste your time! He never wanted the child so I would never introduce him to his "father" it would be a waste of time and hurt feelings..

    YES... the Grandmother is silly...RAY is the cause of her daughters death... he's the cause of Chancellor being disabled... Ray never wanted the kid, still don't want to see the kid, don't want to be a part of the kids life.... but the granny insists on taking the kid to the jail... She should continue to go on with life let the kid move on and continue to treat Ray as if he doesn't exists...Ray don't want to be bothered he don't even want to see the kid...let Ray go to Hell

  • Babby

    He in minimum custody. He was in medium custody for moved a while ago.he watches tv all day and talk on the phone prison isnt hard on him

  • Trace da Ace

    I strongly feel like they should have all gotten the death penalty!! All because he did not wrap up and did not want to take care of another child!! Really?? That poor young woman lost her life and her child has been through so much because of this fool?? I would not EVER let him see that boy.

  • KarmaBackAround

    God bless that young man...i remember this story..it was so tragic..

  • KarmaBackAround

    But why are u takin him to the jail forcing that bastard to see the child he attempted to kill...he should never ever lay eyes on that young man n he shouldve gotten more time n my opinion

  • Michelle

    Take ur politically correct ass on somewhere, it's the truth!

    His quality of life is LIFE you fool. His grandmother didn't say anything about she was suffering so who are you to determine if she is suffering from caring for her grandson? dummy

    Hating someone takes more energy than forgiving them & leaving it for God to handle .

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    I remember this case....just awful! He is a perfect combination of Rae Caruth and his mother. Can you imagine being his care taker and have the feeling of looking at your daughters killer in the eyes everyday?!

  • Nachol Cravens Ifbb Pro

    I'm thinking that she low key wants him to see what he's done to his son face to face. You can't run from your conscience, I don't care who you are. She's about to screw his psyche up big time. She know what she's doing. #checkmate

  • parisjok

    remember when this happened. as young women who are in a relationship without being married to someone who is ALREADY PAYING child support u need to 100% understand that nine times out of ten he is not looking to pay another child support order.

    it is still the number one reason why beautiful young unmarried females are being murdered today because of the men not wanting to pay child support. he ruined all these lives just because he did not want to be a dad again.

    the female has to take some responsibility and not have babies out of wedlock by a man who has made it very very clear that he does NOT want to be a dad. life is so unfair in so many many ways and this is one of those subject matters that is very unfair. had she realized just how much danger she and her unborn baby was in she would have maybe made different choices.

  • Not Down With The BS

    Pregnant married women are murdered by their husbands as well. Remember Laci Peterson? Being unwed has nothing to do with it. Place the blame where it belongs, on the killers!!! Smh! No one has the right to kill anyone!

  • Coffee1st

    Exactly.

  • Coffee1st

    That's silly. You don't know how severe his disabilities are. Grandma says he's thriving. Just because a person isn't so called " normal" doesn't mean they have no quality of life.
    Yes, presumptuous and silly.

  • Coffee1st

    Unforgiveness breeds bitterness and bitterness breeds a very sick and/or plagued soul. The forgiveness was for her, not him. That's the wisdom of it.
    If she wouldn't have forgiven rae, in her mind, she would have been raising her daughter's killers handicapped son. The unforgiveness and bitterness wouldn't have let her mind rest from that concept. Forgiveness freed her to raise an extension of her daughter, her Grandson.

  • Coffee1st

    Beautiful, isn't it.

  • Michelle

    U suffered lack of air to the brain as well, I SAID GO AWAY TROLL! You can not impose your beliefs on others. My opinion still stands, so does my demand. GO AWAY or should I say it in retard?

  • R in NYC

    Absolutely. No remorse whatsoever. That man is dead inside.

  • R in NYC

    Exactly. What's so sad is that kid probably could have been an nfl quality athlete himself. Looking just like the father who wanted him dead.

  • wiseone

    That's all good and well but he he killed my daughter I would hate that low life son of a bytch for the rest of my life. He does not deserve forgiveness.

  • Coffee1st

    I understand your sentiment. I have daughters myself. But I think you missed my point. Forgiveness is for us, not the guilty. Forgiveness doesn't mean they're our friend or that we relieve them of any consequence/ punishment. It simply means we release all the negativity created by what they did so WE can LIVE. Not only live, but live freely and in a healthy state.
    Leaving all the consequences of what they did sitting squarely on THEIR shoulders.

  • wiseone

    I get what you are saying but not only did he murder the boy's mother he ruined his son's
    life, depriving him of living a normal life. That son of a bytch needs to die a slow painful death.

  • Coffee1st

    I get you. And I'm hoping I'm not coming off like I got it all together. Dealing with some stuff of my own. Just offering another perspective, I've seen what bitterness can do to a person.
    But, yeah. This man...*sigh*... that's a special kind of wickedness. SMH.

  • VM

    Agreed and to go all these years with no regrets shows how cutthroat he really is.

  • Trivia Questions

    I make a sign in account just to address the foolishness in your comment!
    Have you ever even read the story about Chericka Adams?
    Well check this, Chericka Adams was educated and had money herself.
    She sold real estate, and had 2 other business or jobs she was working. The bmw was hers bought and paid that she shot up in, following he lying black ass. (Plus she owned another car and lived on her own with a roommate friend) She was no random gold digging nothing.
    I do understand about women making sound choices especially about bringing unwanted children in the world for the purpose of a payoff.
    THAT WAS NOT THE CASE HERE.

  • Trivia Questions

    Its so sad. That child is just as cute and handsome as he wanna be. If it was not for his jack ass father, you can tell he would have acheived just about anything.
    Probably would have been more athelete that his father and a scholar.

  • my view

    block me if you want me to go away

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    No more than to assume and have confidence , that the grandmother has prepared accordingly. Rae' pension when to this child. I would be shocked that she has made arrangements that would include this young man's care and quality of life rely on the man that took her daughter and tried to take her grandson from this world.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    This total victim blaming....MURDER and attempted MURDER negates all of the "But she knew"..."he tried to tell her" "She forced him" "bad boy" "he didnt want this" hogwash.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    It's not victim blaming it's about someone making bad decisions.
    Bad choices have bad consequences.
    You can play the victim for the rest of your life and see how far it gets you.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    The irony in your statement is: She can't play the victim for the REST of HER LIFE.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Did Rae tell her to have an abortion?
    When a man tells a women to have an abortion that means two things:
    He doesn't want to be a father and he no longer wants to have a relationship with the woman.
    Now if she had just taken that hint and told Rae to go to hell and she would raise their son by herself she would still be alive.

  • disqus_FW7pCIigCY

    I get what you're saying, but what about the boys feelings, she's going to introduce Ray to the kid, Ray don't want any type of relationship so he'll probably treat the kid like crap, and then leave, the kid is already disabled..what is she going to tell the kid when he ask about his dad...the grandmother is causing pointless heartache for the kid...leave Ray the murderer alone and let him live in his misery and let the kid continue to move on with his life.

  • TawnyDelux

    Why would she take him to see him. He doesn’t deserve to see him. Rae Carruth is a heartless bastard

  • 11pink123

    Shes trying to do the same thing her daughter was trying to do, force him to be a Father. She's pathetic, this is not a good idea unless she has already confirmed it with Rae. The boy already barely has a quality of life, I guess she wants to take a chance at ruining him more over her selfish desires.
