It takes a special type of jerk to “make” a child, and then have nothing to do with it. If you’re not interested in having children with a woman, then you should take precautionary measures BEFORE you impregnate her. Clearly, Rae Carruth had no interest in that, and chose to deal with the aftermath in the worst way possible. When he discovered that a woman named Cherica Adams — who Carruth was dating — had become pregnant, he blocked her car with his car, while another man, whom he paid, attempted to take her life. It was later discovered that Carruth paid the hitman because Adams refused to abort the child.
The unborn baby was able to survive the brutal attack, but Adams wasn’t as lucky. She slipped into a coma after the attempt on her life, and passed away a month later. Carruth fled after Adams’ death, but was quickly captured in Tennessee, found hiding in the trunk of a car outside a motel. At trial, Carruth was found guilty and sentenced to 18 to 24 years behind bars.
