    http://www.kltv.com/story/28849003/b...-investigating

    Images of the victim (from embedded video



    This is a screengrab from the embedded video of the location where the incident occurred:

    Jiree's brother performed CPR on him before EMS arrived. The video states Jiree had dreams of becoming a DOCTOR! now those dreams are gone forever

    I hope LE is able to get to the bottom of this horrific crime. The images of the crime scene leave no doubt this child suffered.



    Rest In Peace, Jiree. You WILL be missed!

    This is an awful situation. How cruel!

    I suspect we will learn the suspect took issue with this kid riding his ATV up and down the county roads. Many communities are dealing with ATVs on roads and thoroughfares, but this is not the way to deal with that. We have an issue with ATV riders on city streets and in parks in the Atlanta metro area. I have seen many people comment on ways to stop them in their tracks similar to this. Thankfully, nothing like this has happened.

    This is not the way you deal with community problems such as this at all!

    MOO.

    You cannot obstruct a public roadway. Whatever charges stem from that beginning fact should be filed, IMO.

    Per ^ anchor, "Jiree was out riding with his family.... His brother quickly ran to his aid."

    Brother, Equilla Mobley, 24 y/o, is quoted:
    "I sat with my brother during 15 minutes of CPR," Equilla says, "waiting on the ambulance to get here"
    "I'm just 24-years-old and to see death that close to me instead of on TV, like it's supposed to be, it's just hard to take in
    ."

    Sad, sad, sad.

    Reminders from http://www.atvsafety.org/ w bbm

    "The ATV Safety Institute's Golden Rules:

    1. Always wear a DOT-compliant helmet, goggles, long sleeves, long pants, over-the-ankle boots, and gloves.
    2. Never ride on paved roads except to cross when done safely and permitted by law - another vehicle could hit you. ATVs are designed to be operated off-highway.
    3. Never ride under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
    4. Never carry a passenger on a single-rider ATV, and no more than one passenger on an ATV specifically designed for two people.
    5. Ride an ATV that's right for your age.
    6. Supervise riders younger than 16; ATVs are not toys.
    7. Ride only on designated trails and at a safe speed.
    8. Take a hands-on ATV RiderCourse and the free online E-Course. Visit ATVSafety.org."


    From wiki, footnote 15 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All-terrain_vehicle
    "CPSC 2005 Annual Report of Deaths and Injuries" (PDF). Archived (PDF) from the original on 9 September 2008. Retrieved 2008-08-26.
    (sorry, not showing more recent info)

    Again, glad Sheriff's office has an open investigation in this case and has ID'ed a suspect.
    Who thinks putting barbed wire across a public road = good idea? First class idiot & criminal.

    Sad, sad, sad for the family.

    Benita Caddell said her mother-in-law was older and unable to maintain the property at the dead end of the road. She said her husband had made several claims that people were dumping trash and stealing from two trailer houses on his mother's property, although he never complained of kids or people riding four-wheelers along the road.

    ----------------------

    On Monday, Smith County detectives spoke with medical personnel from UT Health Center, who said 12-year-old Jiree Mobley had head and neck trauma, c-spine and skull fractures, and an external puncture wound on his neck. Doctors told detectives Mobley's injuries and death were a direct result from hitting the fence.

    http://www.kltv.com/story/28861266/w...ed-12-year-old

    This fence clearly should not have been there.
    However, this child should have been wearing a helmet as well.
    This is not meant to blame the victim or the family.
    However this might have been a horrible accident instead of a death... if he'd had a helmet on.
    I don't know what actually killed him.. if it was the neck injury a helmet may not have helped anyway.

    People shouldn't drive drunk... but they do.
    So I make sure that my children are as safe in the car as possible.
    People shouldn't act like idiots on snowmobiles, but they do.
    So again, we make sure the kids are as safe as possible.

    ATV's should have a helmet and chest protector at a minimum... just like we do on snowmobiles.
    I lost a couple of friends when I was a kid due to lack of helmets. They are important.

    So senseless
    From your link:

    He told Hinton he "wanted, at most, to scratch someone's car up as they went ... to dump trash." When asked if he if reported any of the illegal or suspicious activity, including the trash dumps or theft, he said he hadn't. He also acknowledged several people requesting he remove the fence. Following the interview, Vernon Caddell was released at the scene.
    ---
    The ME's report will have direct bearing on how adjudication plays out - especially if this reaches sentencing.

    Scratches cars? What about the damage to HUMAN BEINGS?!

    TX - Jiree Mobley (12) killed on ATV after hitting barbed wired stretched acr...

    UPDATE: Smith Co. man charged with manslaughter after boy dies in ATV accident - KYTX CBS19.tv - News, Weather, & Sports | Tyler-Longview

    UPDATE: CHAPEL HILL (KYTX) A Chapel Hill man charged with manslaughter.

    He's accused of stringing the barbed wire fence killing 12-year old- Jiree Mobley this weekend.

    The man's brother says the fence served a purpose. 58-year-old Jiree Ray Caddell turned himself in this morning.

    (snip)

    We spoke to Jiree's family yesterday as they dealt with their loss.

    "He was a light and full of life..." said Jiree's grandmother, Johnnie Mobley.

    Now today, a sigh of relief as family members say they're glad Caddell is off the streets.

    "It still doesn't bring our baby back...that neighborhood is going to be eventually torn up. My son is not going to have anyone to eventually go out and have fun with," said Ericka Franklin, victim's cousin.

    We stopped by the home where neighbors say Caddell lives. Caddell's brother, Issaac Caddell, told us the wire was there to keep burglars away.

    That doesn't matter to the Mobleys, as they grieve the loss of Jiree.

    "I understand that you're trying to protect your neighborhood and people are stealing is what he's saying but that doesn't give him reason to put a fence across the road," said Franklin.

    Caddell's brother also says Ray had been reaching out to Smith County for several years -- asking for something to be done about the burglaries, he says nothing was done and that's when the barbed wire went up.

    Caddell is being held in the Smith County jail. His bond is $750,000.

    Awful. This is sounding like one of those sad sad accidents. I couldn't tell from the map - was there anyone else who owned property beyond the barbed wire stretched across the road? Was the barbed wire stretched across the road literally only an access to this one property? I ask, because we live in an area where there is a road near construction, and I can't believe the amount of trash people dumped in our yard - even cement. Cement trucks would come and offload gallons and gallons of wet cement that we had to later chip away from the property with a sledgehammer. Or a truckload of broken furniture, the backseat of a car, lawn and leaf bags of refuse. Was this what they were dealing with, and their thought was to put barbed wire across the road access to their property?

    When I was about 10, I was riding my bike from a drugstore(about 1/2 block from my house, toward my home. I had to ride past a gas station, and there were 2 posts that I thought would be fun to ride between. What I didn't know was that there was rope between the two polesm that had stretched a plastic sign up at one time. (The sign was missing). I got one heck of a rope butn on my neck and it yanked me off the bike. I look back now and think OMG, thank goodness they didn't ust wire to hang their signs, or I could have decatitated myself. Kids will do things innocently, but sometimes the results are dire.
    This man should absolutely NOT have put the barbed wire fence across the road, but the young man should have been wearing a helmut.

    Horrible. When I was about 10, I had a friend who was riding her bike through back yards in a neighborhood on an air force base. We all rode our bikes through the back yards - no one cared, it was all rental properties, and it was no big deal. This day, they had strung a wire clothes line between two trees and my friend caught the clothes line in the mouth. It ripped her skin all the way to her ears and knocked her backwards off her bike onto her skull. She was out of school for 6 months. It was awful, a clear accident. (Before anyone says she shouldn't have been riding across private property, Air Force neighborhoods aren't like that. This was a grouping of houses around a park, and it was all Air Force property). Anyway, wires stretched across places can be VERY dangerous, accidentally.
