Those Vantrease family members are at it again. This time it’s the siblings spreading their propaganda. I would like to thank those who brought this information to my attention and provided information.
Andraya (“Andy”) Vantrease has taken to Twitter to spread her “truth” about her felon brother, Austin Vantrease (of Newark, Delaware). She seems to believe he was wrongfully convicted! Well, at least that’s what she wants people to think.
Remember, Austin Vantrease is convicted by a jury. He is sentenced to serve 2 – 10 years in prison for his violent crime and is now incarcerated in the Huttonsville Correction Center that houses some of their worst criminals the State of West Virginia has to offer.
Wrongful conviction, my ass!
Just a bit more digging reveals a reason why Andy is doing this. Let me share her words:
“Please continue to help my family and I bring Austin Vantrease home so he can be at the next trip to the U.S. National Whitewater Center! ” [Source: Facebook, 06/23/2013]
Seriously? She wants him free so he can vacation? Ugh!
Oh, here’s another from her, painting a violent kick to the head of an unresponsive person as “a complete accident”:
“Austin is an amazing kid and he has been incarcerated in West Virginia for three years over an incident that was a complete accident. Many people made bad decisions that night, and he has sufficiently paid for his.” [Source: Facebook, 06/20/2013]
Then there’s the brother, Cody Vantrease, making his plea:
For all those who know what my family has been going through the past three years, and even for those who dont, please visit this website to help Austin Vantrease, my younger brother, and our family. Although this is very personal, please, PLEASE share, so the TRUTH can finally be told. [Source: Facebook, 06/19/2013]
Could this family be any more selfish? Any more insensitive? Any more enabling? Actually, I say they are. If you don’t believe me then I’ll just end with this statement posted by Bob Vantrease, Austin’s father:
“Austin truly was the scapegoat in this terrible tragedy.” [Source: Facebook, 06/24/2013].[button color=”#COLOR_CODE” background=”#COLOR_CODE” size=”large” src=”http://www.change.org/petitions/deny-parole-to-austin-vantrease”]Sign Petition: Deny Vantrease Parole[/button]
