Skylar Neese Case Goes To Supreme Court Over Insurance Dispute

On Wednesday, September 21, 2016, Wilson, Frame & Metheney, PLLC, (Bill Frame) appeared in the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia on behalf of David and Mary Neese, in a proceeding related to the death and disappearance of their daughter, Skylar. Skylar was murdered and her body concealed by her two teenage schoolmates, Rachel Shoaf and Sheila Eddy, on July 6, 2012.

Arguments in the Supreme Court on Wednesday focused upon insurance coverage for the claimed negligence of the parents of Shoaf and Eddy, who failed to properly supervise and monitor their daughter’s activities and behaviors. Eddy, at 16 years old, was entrusted with a family vehicle for an overnight excursion, during which the two girls lured Skylar into the car and later stabbed her to death.

At the conclusion of the arguments the case was submitted to the Court. A decision should be announced in about 8 to 10 weeks.

If you or a loved one has suffered injury or loss as the result of the negligence or fault of another, contact Wilson, Frame and Metheney to see if you have a case.  Every case is different and you won’t know until you talk to an experienced attorney.
