Legal experts see case for intent in Waukesha parade crash

  Legal experts see case for intent in Waukesha parade crash The man accused of plowing his SUV into a parade of Christmas marchers could have turned down a side street but didn’t. Once he passed it, he never touched the brakes — barreling through and leaving bodies in his wake, according to a criminal complaint. No motive has been given for Darrell Brooks Jr., the suspect in the suburban Milwaukee crash Sunday that killed six people and injured more than 60 others, but it may not matter if he goes to trial. Legal experts say the evidence strongly supports intentional homicide charges that would mean life in prison.

"Our hearts are heavy as Heaven gained an angel yesterday," Sigma Alpha Epsilon wrote. "His strength and kindness never went unseen and we were so thankful to have him as a brother. Please pray for his family and be thankful for the ones around you. May his soul rest easy."

Valencia's family said they are "heartbroken" over the death and are demanding answers.

"Our preliminary investigation reveals mistakes were made and safety precautions overlooked. We will be completing a full investigation to determine how UNLV and the Kappa Sigma Fraternity could allow and promote an event like this to take place," the family said in a statement through their attorneys. "College students should not be placed in a situation where they are pitted against each other for combat."

The family's attorneys said they "will leave no stone unturned to determine how a 20 year old ended up in a school-sanctioned amateur fight that cost him his life. "
