Charlotte, North Carolina
‘Solid’ friend barely gets to adulthood
Once, his friend ran out of gas and money, desperate to get home. The boy nicknamed “Rale” literally gave her the shirt off his back and tried to sell it at Plato’s Closet, a used clothing store, so she’d have gas money.
Late on June 3, 2018, after shots were fired into a Charlotte, N.C., home, Terale A. Claridy-Vaught, 18, was found dead on the street.
