Olathe Man Brain-dead; Another Man Charged

Jeremy ClaerhoutDoctors have declared Christopher Willdermood, a 32-year-old Olathe man and the victim of what police allege was a drunk driver, brain-dead.

Jeremy Michael Claerhout (pictured) Facebook Page has currently been charged with Aggravated Battery and is in custody on a $250,000 Bond. Police placed Claerhout under arrest for having a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or more. Now that Willdermood has been declared brain-dead, we would expect those charges to change.

Fox 4 is reporting:

According to the police report, just after 10 p.m. on Sunday, January 11, Christopher was driving in the 1300 block of South Ridgeview Road in Olathe.

Police say his car and a pickup truck were both traveling southbound when the driver of the pickup rear-ended his car, pushing it off the road.

Christopher was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Christopher was an electrical engineer and KU alum. He is an organ doner and his uncle says family members are keeping him on life support in hopes his organs will save someone else.

Drugs are Bad

Casey Cordell
So, we have all heard it before, but… Drugs Kill. In this instance, we had a high speed chase in a stolen Honda. High speed, running stop signs, flashing red lights until coming into contact with a Kansas City Water services truck. Thankfully the City employee only had minor injuries. The front passenger of the Honda, Christopher Ford, was pronounced dead at the hospital, and I was told they are pulling the second passenger off of life support tonight.

The driver of our topic today is this puke to the left. His name is Casey Cordell. Casey is a convicted felon with a record in Johnson County that dates back to 2003. Charges ranging from Criminal Damage to Cocaine Possession.

Cordell now sits in  Jackson County custody on charges of manslaughter. Unfortunately, if my sources are right, it will be two charges by morning.

Drugs are bad, ummkay.
