ABC7 – The search is on for the so-called “affluenza” teenager who avoided jail time for a deadly drunk driving accident.
A warrant has been issued for Ethan Couch. Investigators say his parole officer hasn’t been able to reach him or his mother for several days.
Couch was 16 when he slammed into a crowd of people in 2013, killing four of them near Fort Worth.
He was given 10 years’ probation in December of 2013 after his attorneys argued Couch lived life as a rich kid whose parents gave him no boundaries or consequences.
“I’ll always cherish memories that we had,” said Eric Boyles, father and husband of two women killed. “Today, those memories are painful because it brings you to the situation that they’re not here today.”
