Semi-truck driver found in burned wreckage of truck in Detroit

On June 26, 2014 my Son-In-Law - Mike Boeglin was shot 5 times and then burned in his Freightliner Semi, in Detroit, MI while waiting at the delivery gate to deliver his load. He would have picked up another load to go to Princeton, IN, and then home to my Daughter who is just over 4 months with child - Mike and Ashley's 1st! They had purchased a home in Mike's home town of Ferdinand, IN to be close to Family, Friends and the Church Community that Mike Loved and lived in for all but 1 1/2 years that they lived in Lake Havasu City, AZ right after Ashley graduated from the University of Evansville in 2008. They paid for their home and were in the process of remodeling in preparation of their Child being born in November. On October 27th they would have been celebrating their 2nd Wedding Anniversary (we will still celebrate this day). There are many things that have been started, but not completed, which starting Friday Mike was going to take a month off from Truck Driving and finish all of re-model and construction of the Baby's room, the Kitchen and Living/Dining rooms. And knowing my Son he would have accomplished this had his life not been so tragically taken from his Family, my Daughter and un-born "Baby Boeglin", as Mike and Ashley so lovingly called their child.

My Daughter will have many unknown "loads" to carry very, very soon! With the House, Education for the child, and just everyday life for this blessing WE all call Children. Ashley and the Baby will need much very soon and they will need more than I can even come close to offering and providing, yet she will never ask for anything! Ashley doesn't need this burden, nor does my GrandBaby! This is why I'm asking for help, for Ashley and and their un-born child!

Thank you for reading my message!!! May NONE of you have to experience this in your lives!

Today was close to the toughest day in my Life! Mike was buried today ~ the service was great ~ all of the people were wonderful and very supportive, I just NEVER imagined that WE, the Families and Friends of Mike would EVER have to experience the loss, and the devastation of whatever this is~! I know i'm just not making any kind of sense ~ it's just so senseless! Thank you for the support ~ but WE have a long way to go for Ashley and the baby ~ please help~!!!!!

GOOD 4th of July to one and all ~ please be safe, give plenty of hugs to LOVED ones, enjoy the day~!

As I reflect on the meaning of Independence Day I am reminded this is too one of our FREEDOMS that so many in the Military have secured for all Americans~! One week ago yesterday my Son-in-Law was robed of his "pursuit of happiness" talked about in OUR Constitution, for himself my Daughter and "Baby Boeglin"~! I'd like to tell everyone Mike's story, but there aren't pages or words to share, and the story is exactly the same as many of your own~! The ending is very different, and I hope NONE of you will ever have to experience the ending of life like my beautiful Son endured!

I am again here today asking for your help, so WE can keep Mike's dream of happiness for his beautiful wife ~ Ashley, and their baby ~ Baby Boeglin~! Many items were left un-finished by Mike that really need completed prior to the birth of their Baby~! Ashley and the Baby's needs are great and Mike would have made sure all their needs a wants were taken care of ~ so I'm here today asking you help Mike and his dream~! This journey for Ashley and the Baby will be tough at best ~ won't YOU please, PLEASE help carry the load~! David

Back up in Indiana to help Ashley out in any way that I can~! Maybe nothing I can do for her other than just being here, she is my only Girl and I sure hate this for her, or anyone else~!

You have all been so generous and kind to my Family, my Daughter and Baby Boeglin~! Thank you doesn't even come close - but that's all I seem to be able to offer - so thank you again~! David

PLEASE don't think that I have forgotten to write to each and every donor ~ YOU are all so very important to Myself, Ashley and Baby Boeglin~! The future for Baby Boeglin, and of course Ashley is somewhat determined by what WE can do today~! Sending your kind, wonderful words of praise and thoughts, to my Son, my Daughter, and my Baby Boeglin are greatly appreciated~! Next week, after the funeral, Ashley and I will sit down and write thank yous to you all~!

We still aren't hearing anything from Detroit ~ and I will keep my mouth shut for NOW~! It is so disheartening, and only adds to the Boeglin and Clark Families total misery and heart break not to be kept up on events around Mike's murder investigation ~ I have been told by many to be patient ~ patients is not even close to being available to most of us, SORRY~! These are VERY hard and difficult times for US and ALL of you~! Just a glimmer of hope that Mike's "CHICKEN" Murder(s) will be caught, and brought to some kind of justice is just a part, a BIG part, of what WE the Families pray hourly for~!

So thank you for supporting this fund ~ and please tell others that may support OUR effort for Mike, Ashley, and Baby Boeglin~! David/Crusty Old Da

A Wrongful death claim as a direct result of their company policy would go a long way in improved safety for us all. They have the space! Drivers are second class citizens and carriers allow it. Shame on them. HOS we don't have a choice.

Fellow drivers present or retired...calling on your help to this family has tragically lost a son,husband,and a father to be. He was waiting at a customer to unload. Shot five times and his semi set afire. We all know the dangers of our job daily. Trying to be safe,deliver,and come home safe is our priorities. This driver's family is grieving and let's band together as drivers and show support. He was our driver brother may he rest in peace. Sending donation tonight and prayers to his family.

I am off work right now because I was almost killed in a car accident last Oct. So right now all I can offer is my prayers and I will share on my Facebook page. It's so scary my dad is a truck driver so now I worry when he's gone. Hopefully I'll be back to work next month and I can donate some until then I'll pray

Ashley and David...may you find comfort in knowing we never lose the people we love even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories and we will find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. Although no words can really help to ease the loss of your beloved Michael, know that you and Ashley and Baby Boeglin are in our every thought and prayer. May the Angels walk with you today and always.
