Witnesses report that Steve Brinson acted more like a happy bridegroom than a grieving husband at Racheyl’s funeral. One witness said, “He was laughing and carrying on at the viewing. One girl asked him if he needed a hug. He said he needed all the hugs he could get. He never came inside, he stayed outside laughing and joking with the boys. At the funeral he was dressed in a shiny silvery grey suit with a black tie and black shirt. he looked like a Saturday Night Fever reject.” Another witness stated that he overheard Steve say that Cole would never have to worry about money for the rest of his life.
