Shelton’s brother died in a crash nearly three decades ago.

“I can understand how you guys feel. It’s the worst possible feeling. It’s confusion. It’s anger. It’s just an overall brokenness that’s just gonna take a lot of time to heal,” Shelton says.

Shelton learned of the deaths through his mother, who grew up with the father of a member of Quaboag’s school committee.
