Shayla Rightmire: Witness says husband ran her down with truck. So far, no charges have been filed.


Say what you will about accused East Texas meth dealer Shayla Rightmire, but you can't deny that the woman has a code. On her Facebook page, it's right there, clearly stated for the world to see:

Shayla answered Do you support drug testing to get approval to be on Welfare? with Yes.

Maybe she's some kind of proud Red State, Tea Party (alleged) meth dealer. Maybe she really believes that only private funds should be used to purchase her wares. It's weird -- most drug dealers will take money from wherever they can get it, but Rightmire's nothing if not a maverick, kinda like Sarah Palin, or maybe even a real-life Joan Galt.

"Stand up for what you believe in, even if it means standing alone," she says elsewhere on her page.

Hell, or maybe that whole thing about drug testing was just a ruse designed to throw off Trinity County cops. If that was the case, she failed.

Shyan Spikes: Camera's over here, dude. That's just a shadow person over there.

Yesterday Trinity County constables nailed Rightmire and her 22-year-old alleged accomplice Shyan Spikes in an undercover meth buy-bust in the Trinity suburb of Pinecrest. Constable Woody Williams said the operation came after complaints reached his desk of increased drug activity in the suburb.

Rightmire and Spikes are each charged with third-degree felony counts of possession and delivery of a controlled substance. If convicted they could face two to ten years in the pen on each count.

UPDATE: In a tragic coda to this piece, police in Trinity County say Shayla Rightmire was killed after her husband, 34-year-old Charles Aaron Rightmire, ran over her with his truck late Wednesday night. The incident occurred at the couple's home.

According to a Trinity County Sheriff's Office press release, Shayla Rightmire was found dead in a vacant lot next door to their home, near some tire tracks left by the truck. Sheriff's deputy Ralph Montemayor said that Charles Rightmire has been cooperating fully with the investigation, which is also being conducted by the Texas Rangers and the Trinity County District Attorney's Office.

No charges have been filed. Montemayor said that DA Joe Ned Dean told him that a grand jury will decide in January whether any charges will be filed. Rightmire has two felony drug convictions from the 1990s.

Shayla Rightmire leaves behind two children.

To the writer of this garbage. Did you ask Woody Wallace if Shayla passed her drug test? Mr. Lomax? Did you Sir? Because she was not a user.  Have you thought one second about what this trash is doing to her family.  I was her friend and know I was surprised to see this.  But I guess as a writer you always judge and speak before you seek the trueth... I think ya'll suck! God Bless

I attened the funeral today and wondered what was all the "purple" about? After listening to the preacher man talk about not passing judgement, someone told me that the meaning of the color was a representation of abuse. What that told me was everyone wearing purple today was standing in judgement of her husband, something that the preacher said was "God's job".

I guess anyone can be a reporter?  Evidently Mr. Lomax couldn't find anything bad on this girl's fb, " Stand up for what you believe in, even if it means standing alone", and that she believed everyone should be drug tested before receiving welfare?  Something many of us also believe, but yet Mr. Lomax used these statements to make fun of her.  How disgusting and utterly cruel.  And to make it worse, this young mother is now dead, not here to defend herself, not here to fight the charges against her.  All that is left is a grieving family,  children without a mom, and a tasteless reporter.

Hey fucker! You need to take this shit down! She is now dead and will never go to trial! Whats wrong with standing up for what you believe in even if that means standing alone? So follow the fucking leader like you were taught! She was a mother, daughter, aunt, wife and a wonderful friend and will be missed greatly! And by the way it is Woody Wallace and she didnt not test dirty for ANYTHING! Do your fucking homework!

 Did you also know that she was fighting the allegations against her. You're a reporter, did you not ever hear of innocent until proven guilty?  Shayla was not the person you have made her out to be.  She was a wonderful person, loving mother, and friend to many.  She was always the first one to help those in need.  To invade her facebook and make fun of her is the absolute lowest of the lowest.  You should feel proud of yourself.  Yes, I am very angry and hurt right now, and as much annomosity as I feel for you right now Mr. Lomax, I hope you never have to experience something this tragic in your own family.  God help you.

Look it's best to be informed with truth before you speculate about a person or their business. The truth will be known... That is the only way true justice can be served! But as far as this story goes... I've got thick skin, and an amazing life. I was scared and how many of you have ever given someone a ride in your car?!? It is in Gods hands as anything in life should be. I wish you all the best and thank you for having something to say! Freedom of speech is wonderful... Ignorance is contagious!

You want trash? Look at the bastard that wrote this bullshit article about someone that was not only loved by everyone, but was also pregnant!!!!! I guess they didn't tell you that. I thought reporters were supposed to get all their facts together before writing garbage. For everyone that knew Shayla, they knew that her sorry excuse for a husband was mentally and physically abusive for years before he killed her. I can almost see the exact spot where she was killed, her house is (maybe) a football field from my house. This early Thanksgiving morning tragedy took everyone by suprise, and considering people just LOVE to judge, nobody will know or understand what kind of person she really was.

I completely agree with Michelle, he deserves to be degraded, Shayla don't.On that note, she didn't deserve to die either.

Shayla, I hope you can rest in peace knowing all your friends and family are still supporting you. Writing with tears in my eyes I say, we love and miss you so much.

If and when he is actually charged with murder, you can bet your bottom dollar that I will.

If this was wrote by Woody Wallace himself, it should be PROOF that Shayla Rightmire was a good person and sure as hell doesn't derserve this.

Say what you will about this article, but it was written a week before she died, and I could not have foreseen this tragedy.

She was killed by her husband on Wednesday night ass hole. She was a good person and never did drugs or sold drugs. She gave an idiot a ride. She was my friend for the last 18 years. You should be ashamed of yourself for judging a total stranger.

Agreed , you're a piece of shit!!!! Stop deleting my post!!!!! You're disguising inside and out. You're wife should be ashamed she married a spineless worm like yourself.

That was because the police called her a meth dealer. They said, and several news outlets reported, that she sold an undercover cop some meth.
