Commentary on William and Deanna Devening Accident

Things don't necessarily have to be more complicated here than the basics given by police, but over the years I've learned they sometimes take what they see at the scene at face value without digging any deeper. With a plausible story already available for their reports, they may not be inclined to ensure they have the full and true account of what happened. If their "official" report contains omissions or errors, that can obviously be a big problem for people in search of answers or help down the line. That's why I wrote about what investigators should look for after a crash--and who may be more effective at finding it. Click below to read more.
