Murdered Marine Gives Life After Death

Some stories get ignored when they shouldn't be. This is one of them.

Marine Cpl. Brian Matthews, 21, and his date Jennifer Bower, 24, were murdered by a drunk driver Thanksgiving night. Cpl Matthews was stationed at Camp Pendelton and had served seven months in Ramadi, Iraq. His mother said, "This came at a time when I was least worried."

He was admired by his fellow Marines, "He was a perfectionist Marine."

His fellow Marines are distraught over his senseless death. "It's more anger than anything. A guy goes to war and has no problems with that. He comes back to the United States, and it's supposed to be our safe place," said Cpl. Garrett Farris.

Shortly before Thanksgiving, Cpl. Matthews signed an organ donor form. This final act of selflessness helped six people live better lives.

Remember the honor and the goodness of Cpl. Brian Matthews and the evil of his killer.

The driver, Eduardo Raul Moreles-Soriano, had a blood alcohol level of .32. The legal limit in Maryland is .08. He was uninjured in the crash. He has been charged with two counts of manslaughter while intoxicated, driving while under the influence, and two counts of homicide with a motor vehicle. He is an illegal alien who had a valid driver's license... thank you, South Carolina for the legal driver's license and thank you US Congress for not securing our border and dealing with this problem. Moreles-Soriano was released on a previous drunk driving charge in February... thank you, Maryland - looks like the police and the prosecutors really messed up badly. I hope you get life, but I don't hold out much hope. You stole something precious from all of us.
