What you are saying is that a toxicology report has been performed proving that Moises was driving under the influence when indeed nothing has yet to be reported. This is a place to post and grieve for the loss of both families. If you have nothing to justify your claim then please do not post them here.

Maher Madhound.. This is not the place to start accusing my brother or anyone else of being intoxicated without having proof! I'm happy to inform you that my brothers toxicology test show that he was clean. No alcohol or drugs were found in his blood. May my brother Moises Rivera and Erin Vick R.I.P. THANK YOU!
