    Tim Williams was beyond devastated when his best friend was killed by 'affluenza teen' Ethan Couch in a drunken crash. He and Brian Jennings had known each other since elementary school - each had been the best man at the other's wedding and both had found their way into the church. Williams had every reason to hate the 16-year-old who was three times over the legal blood/alcohol level when he mowed down Jennings and three others after a booze-filled evening at the house where his parents had left him to live alone.
