Family Recovers After Teens Throw Rock At Woman - Story Takes A Heartbreaking Turn

A Ohio schoolteacher couldn’t bear to continue to live after a gang of teens left his wife permanently disabled after a rock attack. Randy Budd, 55, was a father of four and shot himself dead about two years after his wife suffered horrific injuries when the teens threw a 5-pound rock off an overpass on Interstate 80, which smashed through the window of the family car.

The event left Budd’s wife in need of constant care, the Daily Mail reports.

“Randy Budd did not die from a gunshot. He died when those kids threw a rock through his windshield,” Peter Johnson, the Union County district attorney said.
“They killed him like they killed her.”

Legislation was introduced to require new fencing on renovated overpasses after Sharon Budd’s attack. Budd texted State Sen. Gene Yaw, “Please get the fence issue settled,” before he committed suicide. He also texted his family members to say he loved them before committing suicide. He is survived by his wife, daughter and three sons. He and his wife were the only ones home at the time of his death.

“On July 11th it will be 2 years since those bastards decided to throw a 5lb rock off an overpass and totally disable my Sharon,” Budd wrote before his death. “She has been through hell and back. Most recent Sharon was admitted to a rehab facility to try to gain SOME independence. After seven weeks away from her family it was decided that she still needs constant care. What a shame, she took so much pride in being a productive mother, wife, friend, daughter, mentor, and teacher. We are left with scars mentally, emotionally, financially, and physically.”
