    Toni koetzle was a dear friend of mine and she will be thought of always.. I wanted to know if there is any more information in her investigation. Also the fact that her vehicle just SWERVED for no reason. I don’t think this matter is being taken as serious as it is..many people lost a special young inspiring young lady.
