Savanah was the real story behind that trialPosted Friday, February 1, 2013, at 6:54 PM
Savanah, Chloe and Josh
This week in Greene Circuit Court, a man was found guilty of causing a crash on February 15 last year in eastern Greene County, with methamphetamine in his system, causing a death. He's been the subject of many stories.
Savanah Allen, a young mother, lost her life in that crash.
I met one of Savanah's family members while I was covering the trial, an aunt who sat quietly through the proceedings. When we struck up a conversation, she never said a harsh word about the defendant, or about the circumstances being hashed out, except that listening was difficult.
Instead she told me about Savanah's family, how her husband misses Savanah, and about their baby Chloe, her cries for Mommy, her language ability at an early age, and that she was a beautiful, sweet child, and smart too. She said, "I think she's a genius."
In the media, attention is directed to the defendant, even when they don't deserve a spotlight. The real story, in this case, was Savanah and her little family.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then these pictures of Savanah, her baby Chloe and her husband Josh, say more than anything I could write.
