According to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, two more arrests have been made in connection with the June 1 accident that killed a North Forsyth High School student.

Cumming residents Delton Cook, 18, and John Fulkerson, 17, have both been charged with reckless conduct and possession/consumption of alcohol by persons under 21. Both were passengers in the vehicle driven by Adam Robert Joseph Di Millo that left Kelly Mill Road at Rockingham Run and struck a telephone pole.

Paul Louis Castell Jr., was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene.

Di Millo was originally charged with D.U.I., underage possession/consumption of alcohol, and 1st degree homicide by vehicle. Additional charges of reckless driving, driving too fast for conditions, failure to maintain lane, seatbelt violation and two counts of violation of Class D license restrictions were later added.

Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office investigators made a second arrest in the days after the accident, charging Jeremiah Luke Funke, who allegedly hosted a party the teens attended prior to the wreck, with possession of marijuana less than an ounce, possession / consumption of alcohol by a minor, and maintaining a disorderly house.

Both Cook and Fulkerson turned themselves in over the weekend and later posted bond. Cook is the son of Cumming Assistant Chief of Police Clyde Cook.

I agree. Something really needs to happen to DiMillo to wake him up and make him realize that all his wreckless is not only ruining his life but now lives of others. The parents obviously did not step in when he was charged at school so now look where he is. Hopefully Justice will be served and he is put a away for some time.

"Something" DID happen. He killed his friend. Throw your self-righteous stones, perfect people. Says volumes about ya.

A parent can't control what their older teenagers do ALL the time. Obviously the people throwing their perfect stones don't realize this. They probably have small children and can't fathom how their precious angels could do such a terrible thing as they tuck them into bed at 8:30 p.m. It's a much different scenario when they are not at home all the time and you can't micro manage them anymore. Quit throwing your stones or at the very least live with teenagers before you do!

Agreed, Fatkat. I understand the anger and wanting to see this boy punished. These kids, all of them, as well as their families, are undoubtedly broken, their lives shattered. Justice should be served, and consequences should be put in place; but anger without empathy serves no one. Especially the family who lost their loved one.

Couldn't have said it better myself Bridgett.
