Oh man. That’s terrible. I honestly don’t know what to say, but I am so sorry for you and your Fiance and father for having to deal with all of this. I hope your brother is not involved in someone’s death, but if so… I wish you and your family strength, and I think you were in the right for NOT helping him because that might implicate you.

One of the hardest things to do is to call the police about someone in your own family…I know…I’ve been there. I think you need to in this case especially since it is so extreme. First of all, to protect yourself so you can not be implicated since they have called and talked to you (phone records) and secondly, if there really is someone that is dead how would you feel if that person was a member of your family? It may be hard but you need to do the right thing.

@thumpurr:  I know exactly how you feel. I don’t talk to my family for the same reasons. Let alone that my mom and I don’t have the best relationship as it is, but her family is so fake, shit talkers and gossipers. My mom’s sister  and her family are the worse! My aunt, her hubsband and their 18 year old son all got raided and arrested for distrubuting meth, near a school and having guns. My aunt came to live with us, while her husband was in prison (he took the blame fo for everything.) 

 

No matter what my mom has done (going to jail for stealing and I get the call late at night from my little brother) we are always there for her and take care of her. My aunt’s kids on the other hand, talk shit to their mother, if they even talk to her and don’t care. My aunt seen this and started telling us lies about our mom to turn us against her. It worked at first, but then she admitted she was jealous and lied. She stoled from us and while living at my mom’s, she was spreading rumors to the family about her. When my mom was the only person helping her. 

 

Now, everyone babies my aunt, still spreads rumors and talks shit about me, and we don’t even go around the family. I definitley don’t. So we’re the bad ones and everyone is just so close to my aunt. Its ridiculous! And her kids are self centered, little bitches, and act like they do no wrong. I’m not inviting any of them to my wedding,  which is already causing problems. But I just ignore it all and don’t give them the time or day. I have my own issues with my mom and as of now she’s not invited either. 

 

I just want to move far away. You’re not alone with dysfunctional families. Just hang in there for your dad. My dad is the only person that supports me and I’m staying strong for him too.

@12yrslater:  She wouldn’t be responsible for messing up his life…HE is. It is one thing to enable someone who is doing drugs, drinking etc but something totally different if someone is DEAD! And blood is not always thicker than water…just because someone has similar DNA does not mean that you should let them do whatever they want with no consequences.

@thumpurr:  Has there been any talk to take the kids in and let your brother and his wife get help?

@thumpurr:  I am sadly the sister for a drug addict. I completely understand you right now. My brother has been an addict for over 20 years. He had the nerve to get another drug addict pregnant-twice-call us crying they can’t take care of the kids, and now we are fighting in court to take the kids from them. Drug drama is the worst. They lie so good and so easy.

I would not blame you for washing your hands of the situation. I really do.
