It was a cold Sunday morning on January 15, 2012, bound to turn into a beautiful day with highs headed In to the mid 60's. Fifteen year old Colton Harvey is awakened by his parents around 7-8 am. He isn't the most pleasant teenager to be around as most adolescent boys aren't usually the perkiest early morning risers, especially when you're still grounded because your Dad found your stash of chewing tobacco in the pocket of your jacket just 2 days prior.
For all the bright, cheerful and bubbly personality that Candace was, there was the same amount of dark, sad and something lingering over Colton that just simply could not be described. Colton was Candace's polar opposite. Though he never really acted out in school, caused the local neighbors any trouble or ever really even been known as a troublesome kid, he did seem to act out towards his parents a lot at home and of course, in turn this would land him in some sort of a punishment. This would be the case on January 13, 2012. Colton was grounded until further notice once the chewing tobacco was discovered in his jacket pocket. Little did Colton's parents know it would be Candace, their 16 year old daughter that would end up paying the price for Colton's actions that day.
