Chad Read Shooting: Still Looks Like Manslaughter, Despite No Indictment
April 08, 2022 26 Commentson
On November 5, 2021, Kyle Carruth fatally shot Chad Read in the chest in a child custody-associated dispute taking place outside Carruth's Texas home. On March 31, 2022, news media announced that a special grand jury convened in this case returned a "no true bill," meaning they declined to indict Carruth on any criminal charges for his having killed Read. Accordingly, it appears that Carruth will face no criminal liability over this event (although he continues to sued civilly over his killing of Read).
