Editor to Aaron & Melannie Babb: We run a lot of news and when things have happened, the police send out a press release.  We have no good way to verify facts during the initial run, we have to rely on the police information that is sent to us.  When a party contacts us as in this case, we do consider what is expressed.  In this case, the story has been modified to no longer reflect the allegation that troubled you.  Honestly, I can understand.  Sorry for your loss, and even if it is hard to believe, we really do care.

Wayne more than likely died from a heart attack. This may have caused his erratic driving. There was no alcohol found on him.
