Fundraiser For Local Teen Killed in Auto Accident

On Sunday night, July 21, 2013, 17 year old Cody Raymond was killed on Highway 66 near Thompson Rd when the vehicle he was driving was struck in the rear at a high rate of speed by an intoxicated driver causing Cody's vehicle to roll in the median. Cody was to graduate high school in the spring of 2014 and participated in college courses, studying to be a welder.
