The wife of Carmon McCurrie, the Suwanee man who was shot and wounded by a former Army friend last December, is "beyond livid" about developments in the case.
In a recent Facebook post, Amy McCurrie said sarcastically, "I would like to thank the defendant from the bottom of my heart for causing these serious injuries to my husband and now he is not able to get the remainder of his follow-ups and treatments that he will need in the near future. You have got to love the system.
"Because of this whole "mess" Carmon has been denied further healthcare coverage."
Also, Amy McCurrie's mother, Rosemary Vollmar, explained that Amy McCurrie lost her job recently in an in-house restructuring, which affected her insurance policy that covered her husband. Amy McCurrie since has found another job.
The defendant is Timothy Amstutz, who served stateside with McCurrie. McCurrie was shot while playing video games in the living room of his home on Grand Park Drive, while his three children were in bed. Two of the children attend Peachtree Ridge High.
Authorities say Amstutz fired from outside the house, then fled. He was captured in North Carolina the next day. He is being held without bond in the Gwinnett County Jail.
"The defendant gets medical care and such and WE get to pay for it all! He is in the system! So whoo hoo!," the Facebook post continued.
Amy McCurrie also has made earlier emotional postings on Facebook.
"I had to watch my husband cry this evening because he is scared," she said in a Facebook post in February.
"I told Carmon today as I was wiping his tears from his eyes, that he would get through this. I told him that WE would get through this. I let him know if he lets this get to him then (the shooter) won."
